PEARL WOODS - DON'T TELL IT ALL b/w LONELY AVENUE
Pearl Woods biggest claim to fame is writing the massive "Something's Got A Hold On Me", as cut by Etta James (she also penned "Poverty", recorded by Bobby Bland).
This track, the top side of which is also self-penned, finds the South Carolina native had a fantastic, sexy and powerful voice of her own. The flip side is a stellar cover of the Doc Pomus written Ray Charles classic "Lonely Avenue".
Pearl recorded a small handful of singles up until 1965, and one more in 1970. She seems to have vanished from the music business at that point, leaving a VERY impressive cache behind.
