DOROTHY WILLIAMS - WATCHDOG
Hearkening back to almost a late 50's hard r&b sound, yet with the then modern sound of the Stax band blazing behind, this is one heck of a record. I love how the horns are pushing the tempo while the rhythm section stands its ground all the while Dorothy keeps reaching higher and higher into the stratosphere with her vocals. Powerful stuff!
I only know of one other release from Dorothy Williams; surprising as she was quite a belter! She co-wrote this record with Stax hero guitarist/ producer/ writer Steve Cropper.
