Betty mabry davis
Kenneth Hugh Burton | ATLANTA, GA United States | 10/25/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We had never heard funk like that before. And from a lady.
"They Say I'm Different" was the second of three albums that Betty Davis released during the early-mid 1970's, originally on Just Sunshine records. All the songs on this album which Betty produces, were written and arranged by her.Of particular note is the title cut "They say I'm different"
This song tells the story of Betty's musical journey. and speaks of her many influences; from blues to soul, from Muddy Waters to Sly Stone. She's one of the reasons why Miles Davis (her x) went in the musical direction he did in the early 70's; ie towards a rock jazz style. She had a great influence of Prince, Madonna, Nona Hendrix, Gloria Trevi, and Larry Graham."

"Don't You Call Her No Tramp!!! Ms. Davis took her name fromher whacked-out husband of that time, the late great Miles Davis, andit's obvious some of his jazz-fusoid ways were rubbing off on herfunkadelia. This album kicks butt, and holds up great twenty sevenyears later (it was her 2nd outing, not her debut). "She Do BeDo and Cop Him", "He Was a Big Freak ('I Used to Beat HimWith My Turquoise Chain/He Used to Love It/I Used to Dig it')"and "Don't Call Her No Tramp!" are the vocal and sessionplayer standouts. This is the LP you put on at the party andeveryone goes wack and tears the roof off the sucker... kind of likethat great album cover depiction on Marvin Gaye's "I WantYou".Why on earth this was not a number one hit upon itsrelease still astonishes me.Punk Funk? ... Dance Jazz? BeyondCategorization?We miss you, Betty. END"
