The Complete Atlantic Recordings. CD

Bettye Swann
The Complete Atlantic Recordings. CD

Soul singer Bettye Swann first came to international prominence with
her now-classic 1967 No. 1 R&B hit, “Make Me Yours.” Following a
couple of years of recording for Capitol Records, the Louisiana-born
songstress was signed to Atlantic Records where she recorded for
close to five years (1972-1976). Now, for the first time ever, Bettye
Swann:  The Complete Atlantic Recordings – compiled by noted soul
music historian David Nathan for Real Gone Music and SoulMusic
Records - documents her tenure with Atlantic with a
23-track collection containing everything she recorded for the
label, featuring the seven singles released by Atlantic, two of which
- “Victim Of A Foolish Heart” and “Today I Started Loving You Again” -
became R&B charted hits. The set also features two tracks only released on UK
compilations; five previously unissued cuts; and both sides of Bettye’s one-off duet with noted R&B
songwriter/recording artist Sam Dees. Liner notes by renowned UK music journalist Charles Waring
include quotes from Bettye, who resurfaced from retirement in 2013 to perform a one-time show in
Britain.
