Betty Davis songs Product Information
Betty Davis album for sale by Betty Davis was released Dec 02, 2003 on the MPC Limited label. Despite an abundance of talent, a crack back-up band (which included most of Graham Central Station), and some of the most stinging funk tracks of the era, it's really not all that surprising that Betty Davis never became a star: the girl was a stone-cold freak, and her self-titled 1973 debut more than illustrates that fact. Second wife to Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix's former girlfriend, Davis is often credited (by Miles himself in fact) with steering Miles toward the sounds that would give rise to his fusion period, and one listen to the acid-tinged wah-drenched guitars on the album's opening track, "If I'm in Luck I Might Get Picked Up," makes it clear that Betty was on a decidedly different trip than almost all of her contemporaries. Betty Davis CD music contains a single disc with 8 songs. ...See Full Description

Davis' mind-blowing debut features Pointer Sisters, early Graham Central Station and a Sly Stone cameo. MUST HAVE for any true funk fan.

||Too Much For Miles...|
It's easy to see why Betty may have made Miles Davis a bit nervous. One listen to her S/T debut, and there is just no question about who called the shots. She is Sly, Tina and Prince rolled into a single lean mean package. Buy it, listen to it, and you will love it!

||As TOUGH as it gets...|
This album is not only hot, this is as tough as it gets. Nice, all funk fans are in for a real treat. This album is dirty. Dirty in a good way. Must have.
By a reviewer (san jose, ca, usa)
The ex-wife of the late Jazz pioneer Miles Davis was turning it out before it became fashionable for women vocalists. Her follow-up to this LP is even "nastier" as the title "They call me nasty" suggests. She belongs in the Rock & Roll hall of fame with the likes of Tina Turner. Women of rock, pay almedge.
