BELITA WOODS - I JUST LOVE YOU


Detroit singer Belita Woods cut two of my all time favorite 45's ("Magic Corner" b/w "Grounded", plus "That's When I'll Stop Loving You") and later fronted a disco band called Brainstorm. She has also been part of the touring George Clinton & The P-Funk All Stars Band (and I think I spotted her onstage a couple years ago singing with Charlie wilson of Gap Band fame). She is still in excellent voice.

The only sad thing is that Belita simply didn't release enough records under her own name! This excellent side was co-produced by Motown's Barrett Strong. Her powerful voice could drive a stomper, and, as heard here, propel a ballad into orbit.

from 1973...
