4 - DAVIS, BETTY - THE COLUMBIA YEARS 1968-1969 - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Unreleased Betty Davis music! All tracks previously unreleased (except track B5/8) - The vibe is intrinsically unique, fresh, and futuristic-jazz heavyweights playing psychedelia, rock, and jazz-fusion long before the term became commonplace. The songs include Betty originals and covers of classics by Creedence and Cream. The concepts explored on these previously unheard sessions fueled concepts that wouldnt be fully realized until years later with Miles seminal On The Corner. Check!One can hardly imagine Prince, Erykah Badu, or Outkast without the influence of Betty Davis. Her style of raw and revelatory punk-funk defies any notions that women cant be visionaries in the worlds of rock and pop. In recent years, rappers from Ice Cube to Talib Kweli have rhymed over her intensely strong but sensual music. Betty penned the song "Uptown" for The Chambers Brothers and wrote the tunes that got The Commodores signed to Motown. The Detroit label soon came calling, pitching a Motown songwriting deal, which Betty turned down. Motown wanted to own everything. Heading to the UK, Marc Bolan of T. Rex urged the creative dynamo to start writing for herself. A common thread throughout Bettys career would be her unbending DIY ethic, which made her quickly turn down anyone who didnt fit with the vision. She would eventually say no to Eric Clapton as her album producer, seeing him as too banal. In 1968, she married Miles Davis and quickly influenced him on the magic of psychedelic rock along with introducing him to Jimi Hendrix-personally inspiring the classic album, Bitches Brew.Miles and Betty fans have long debated the truth of a near mythological session recorded in Studios B and E at Columbias 52nd Street Studios on May 14th and 20th, 1969. The landmark session was produced by Miles and Teo Macero and featured Betty on vocals, accompanied by Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, guitarist John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock on keys, and Dylan/Miles session bassist Harvey Brooks. Other players included bassist Billy Cox (Band of Gypsys), saxophonist Wayne Shorter, and organist Larry Young. Now, Light In The Attic, with full support from Betty herself, presents these recordings to the public for the very first time. These historic sessions-never heard, never bootlegged-predate Miles revolutionary album, Bitches Brew, and are the true birth of Miles jazz-rock explorations, along with the roots for Bettys groundbreaking funk that came years later, starting with her self-titled debut in 1973. While, ultimately, these recordings would go unreleased for nearly half a century, they would greatly shape each of their careers.Additionally, included here is the first time rerelease of a 1968 Columbia single, recorded in October 1968 at Columbia Studios in Los Angeles. The session was produced by Jerry Fuller and featured South African maverick Hugh Masekela on trumpet and arrangements, plus members of jazz-funk pioneers The Crusaders-including trombonist Wayne Henderson and pianist Joe Sample. Two of the three tracks included here from this session are previously unreleased.This deluxe package is a treasure trove for both Betty and Miles fans, including rare documents from the pen of co-producer Teo Macero, rarely seen photos from legendary photographer Baron Wolman, and new interviews with Mrs. Davis herself, Harvey Brooks, and Hugh Masekela-the entire project overseen with Bettys full blessing.NEW PRESSING.

8 - DAVIS, BETTY - THIS IS IT (ANTHOLOGY) - (LP) 
VAMPISOUL


The best of Betty Davis' three much-sought albums finally available! She had a much rougher edge to her music than other female funk and soul artists of the '70s. Betty Davis' is one of the most extreme sounding debut records of the decade, which just like Bitches Brew takes equal parts inspiration from Hendrix and Sly. Future Journey guitarist Neal Schon gives the music its distinctly hard rock Hendrix edge. The Sly angle is fleshed out by former Family Stone drummer Gregg Errico, who plays on and produces the entire record. Former Sly bassist Larry Graham adds an even more unmistakable sound with his trademark grooves.

TRACKLISTING: 01. If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up 02. Anti Love Song 03. Your Man My Man 04. Ooh Yea 05. Steppin' In Her I. Miller Shoes 06. Shoo-b-doop And Cop Him 07. He Was A Big Freak 08. Don't Call Her No Tramp DISC #2: 01. Git In There 02. They Say I'm Different 03. 70's Blues 04. You And I 05. Nasty Girl 06. Funk 07. Getting Kicked Off, Havin' Fun 08. Shut Off The Light
