BETTY DAVIS – This Is It!

Betty Davis This Is It

“No I don’t wanna love you
Cause I know how you are
That’s why I’ve been staying away from you
That’s why I haven’t called you

Cause I know you could possess my body
I know you could make me scrawl
I know could have me shaking
I know you could have me climbing walls

That’s why I don’t wanna love you…”

”Some of the heaviest funk you’ll ever find in one tiny package all courtesy of the mighty Betty Davis! Betty’s work of the 70s is beyond compare fuzzed-out, tripped-up, drum-heavy funk that’s been the stuff of legend for years, and which is the kind of music you could play for just about anyone, and have them say “DANG, what the hell is that!?!” This tasty little set brings together best tracks from Betty’s 3 albums of the mid 70s, Betty Davis, Nasty Gal, and They Say I’m Different, done with a focus on the hardest-hitting tracks from each set, and put together with a real ear for the kind of tunes that still burn mightily after all these years.”

”In the late ‘60’s and ‘70’s, Betty Davis strutted hard and fast – in her I. Miller shoes – through the exotic world of black rock and electric jazz. A talented, sexually assertive woman in the bigoted, male-dominated world of music, Betty gleefully recounted torrid, tempestuous tales over a funky beat, decades before the likes of Kelis, Macy Gray and Missy Elliot were doing it. Oh, and she also married Miles Davis. Go on, move it girl!”
