Bettye Swann:  The Complete Atlantic Recordings  CD

Soul singer Bettye Swann first came to international prominence with her now-classic 1967 No. 1 R&B hit, “Make Me Yours.” Following a couple of years of recording for Capitol Records, the Louisiana-born songstress was signed to Atlantic Records where she recorded for close to five years (1972-1976). Now, for the first time ever, “Bettye Swann:  The Complete Atlantic Recordings” – compiled by noted soul music historian David Nathan for Real Gone Music and SoulMusic Records - documents her tenure with Atlantic with a 23-track collection containing everything she recorded for the label, featuring the seven singles released by Atlantic, two of which - “Victim Of A Foolish Heart” and “Today I Started Loving You Again” - became R&B charted hits. The set also features two tracks only released on UK compilations; five previously unissued cuts; and both sides of Bettye’s one-off duet with noted R&B songwriter/recording artist Sam Dees.  Liner notes by renowned UK music journalist Charles Waring include quotes from Bettye, who resurfaced from retirement in 2013 to perform a one-time show in Britain.
