Diviine Soul Divas - Volume One


Divine Soul Divas Volume One
is the first release in LocoBop’s series of southern soul music performed by some of the greatest lady interpreters of the genre.

SHIRLEY BROWN’s debut release, the Grammy nominated “Woman to Woman,” quickly became a massive hit in 1975, and was actually the last hit for the Stax Records.

CARLA THOMAS
became America’s Soul Sweetheart with her very first release, “Gee Whiz.” She and her father Rufus Thomas were instrumental in establishing Stax Records as the undisputed fount of soul music in the 1960s and ‘70s.

SHELBRA DEAN was recruited by Isaac Hayes and David Porter (famed for their Sam & Dave productions) to join The Soul Children (who scored 15 R&B hits between 1968 and 1978).

DI ANNE PRICE
channels the spirit of classic blues divas Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, Stippie Wallace, and Memphis Minnie. A profoundly soulful singer, her expressive voice is etched with pain or brimming with sly humor while tickling the ivories barrel piano style on two-fisted shuffles, rolling blues, and boogie woogie workouts.

RUBY WILSON
, The Queen of Beale Street, recorded 10 albums and performed with B.B. King, Ray Charles, Robert Goulet, The Four Tops, Jerry Butler, Willie Nelson, Isaac Hayes, and many more. An accomplished actress, Ruby appeared in Black Snake Moan, Cookie's Fortune, The People vs. Larry Flynt, The Chamber, The Client, and The Firm.

Detroit’s KEENA GREEN and her two sisters made up Sweet Obsession and scored five singles on Billboard’s R&B charts, two of which went Top Ten. FAWN makes her debut on this album with two tracks co-written and produced by Henderson Thigpen (“Woman to Woman”) and Winston Stewart (The Barkays).

Highlights: LOVE FEVER (Shirley Brown), FRIEND (Keena Green), and the soulful ballad THIS LOVE (Shirley Brown)
