Genie Brown - A Woman Alone (1973)

A wonderful independent 1970s female soul album by the little-known Genie Brown, whose bold portrait on the cover might be considered a somewhat truthful echo of the determined tone of her singing.

Like many such productions the theme is true and respectful love, honest relationships, and here the raspy voice of Genie is acutely backed up by great musicianship. The sound is full, rich but raw, orchestrated with nice brass and guitar and just a touch of strings —which caught the ear of New York DJ extraordinaire Nicky Siano who made her track 'Can't Stop Talking' a staple of his legendary club The Gallery.

The album also includes the tracks 'You and Me', 'My First Night Alone Without You' and 'Let Me Stand in Your Shadow'.

Enjoy it!
