LUCILLE MATHIS - I'M NOT YOUR REGULAR WOMAN b/w AM I ASKING TOO MUCH
Recorded in Nashville and sponsored by DJ "Hoss" Allen, Lucille Mathis cut a scant pair of 45's, both in 1968.
I don't know what happened to Lucille or why she was only able to cut two records, but goodness gracious this is incredible! The top side is just the type of gritty, hard hitting soul that plain and simply makes life glorious! The other side is the type of deep soul that will break your heart in the best way possible; just LISTEN to how Lucille phrases the first line of the song, with some INCREDIBLE pitch control as she precariously slides into the notes. It's the kind of thing that (record collector's) dreams are made of.
