The Sweetest In Southern Soul From The Legendary Memphis Queen!
In the glorious decade and a half of sound that was Stax in the '60s and early '70s, Carla Thomas was the Queen of Memphis Soul.
A classic soul album from 1966-'67 by one of the most respected female singers of any era - Carla Thomas.
Carla Thomas was to Memphis' Stax Records what Aretha Franklin was to Atlantic: the label's reigning matriarch, able to wrap her glorious voice around "B-A-B-Y" and "Let Me Be Good To You," chart-toppers from the precocious songwriting team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter, as well as R&B standards like Willie Dixon's "Little Red Rooster." Backed by the Stax house combo, fronted by Booker T. and Steve Cropper, Carla also shows off her storied versatility with knockout renderings of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "I Fall To Pieces."
