Tribute To My Soul Sisters
The "funky diva" Martha High has been an integral part of James Browns life and career for more than 30 years: she was his backing vocalist, hair stylist, payroll master and his always loyal and reliable confidant. After a lifetime spent shoulder to shoulder with the Godfather of Soul, she flew to Tokyo and teamed up with Japanese funk ambassadors Osaka Monaurail to pay homage to the great Soul Sisters of the JBs Revue. This unique collaboration gives new life to 13 soulful pearls, masterfully interpreted as only an original Funky Diva can do. To name a few: "Think (About It)", made famous by the female preacher Lyn Collins, "Mamas Got a Bag of Her Own", Anna Kings answer to JB "Papas Got a Brand New Bag", "This Is My Story", of which she recorded the original version with The Jewels and the soul classic "Answer to Mother Popcorn" by Vicki Anderson.
