MILLIE JACKSON - STRANGE THINGS b/w BREAKAWAY
While Millie Jackson is perhaps best known for unique style of lewd, extended raps that became a trademark of sorts (and also a pair of notorious album covers that pop up all over the web), her early sides on Spring Records are a whole 'nother thang. This double sided masterpiece of sister funk showcases Millie's raw vocals at their best, and both sides burn with smouldering intensity, and use innuendo more cleverly than the downright explicit material Millie would later cut. 'Strange Things', to this listener, is one of the greatest female soul sides of the early '70's, and luckily for vinyl folks, it's easy to get and 'cheap as chips'.
