Best Of Betty Everett-Let It Be Me.......
Betty June Moore | Douglas, Georgia USA | 08/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was looking for a song from the movie "Dirty Dancing" called "Love Is Strange" and when I discovered Betty Everett sang it I decided to buy her CD titled "Let It Be Me" and listen to more of her songs. I was not disappointed when the album arrived and I listened to it. There are many great songs on this CD: Some of them are sung in duet with Jerry Butler; one of them is the title song "Let It Be Me" (made it to #5 in the U.S. charts in 1964). While listening to the album, I heard another song that I'd heard in the movie "Mermaids" : "It's In His Kiss" (#6 in the U.S. 1964, #34 in the UK 1968).
There are songs of the pain that goes along with love lost. They include "Chained To A Memory," "Until You Were Gone," and "No Place To Hide."
I strongly endorse this CD. It's classy and smooth and evocative of a wonderful musical era. In my opinion, Betty Everett is as
talented (if perhaps not as well-known) as Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross and the Supremes, or Martha Reeves. I wholeheartedly give Best of Betty Everett -- Let It Be Me five stars!"

"If you're looking for an undiscovered gem, get a hold a Betty Everett "Best of" CD. "Let it be Me" was a song that was, well, I guess you'd call it my parents' courting song. So I grew up listening to it with a great deal of regularity and loved the way her voice worked with Jerry Butler's - much in the same way as Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell worked - magically. It was only when was much older that I realised that the same woman sung "The Shoop Shoop Song", along with "You're No Good", "It's Getting Mighty Crowded" "Hound Dog" & "Can't hear You no More". She has sort of been relegated to R&B obscurity along with great singers like Doris Troy, Anne Peebles & Gladys Horton from the Marvelettes, and a popular resurrection is long overdue!"

"I Really Enjoyed Her Work.Her voice puts so much Drive&Passion into the Music.The "Shoop,Shoop Song is a Timeless Classic.She is easily one of the most Underrated Artists Ever.this is a Solid Collection on a Talent that is Long Overdue."
