The new album from Bettye LaVette is called “Worthy”. It is a beautiful album from a songstress with a great voice. You will love every track on it.
Bettye LaVette is still going strong after all these years. Bluesy-soul, rock and roll, blues, sweet soul music and a heavenly voice are the ingredients for this worthy album.
You will feel every word Bettye sings and even to hear her rapping on the track “Unbelievable” feels so good. Bettye sings about life in the way most of us will live it from the beginning to the end. The song called “ When I was A Young Girl” will apply to all of us. Boy or girl, man or woman we all understand what she is singing about. The blessings in “ Bless Us All” will give all of us some peace of mind. Who will disagree with Bettye LaVette when she sings “ Stop”. You might think of the young Tina Turner when you hear the song ”Complicated”. It is a composition from Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. A question we would like to find the answer to is asked in “Where A Life Goes”. There is also place for humour on the album as you will notice in ”Just Between You And Me and The Wall, You’re A Fool”. Very passionate and emotional is the song “Wait”. The same thing can be said about the deep soul tracks “ Step Away” and “Worthy”.(TA)
