Finally back on 7” after 40 years is this Larry Mizell created masterpiece for Alabama
born soul singer Brenda Lee Eager. Relocating to Chicago in the early 70s, Brenda sang
with Jerry Butler in his back up group Peaches, and recorded with him too including the
duet “Ain’t Understanding Mellow”, the hit million selling duet in 1971 for Mercury
Records. Brenda began releasing solo records for the label from 1972 while continuing
her background work for artists including Ray Charles, Diana Ross, and Stevie Wonder.
She also wrote songs recorded by Bobby Womack, Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight. In
1974 she recorded this double header with arranger/producer Larry Mizell. It was during
Larry’s heyday period with other artists including Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey and The
Blackbyrds. All the classic hallmarks of the Mizell brothers sound are on this record.
Original copies sell for vast fortunes.
