Mother Wit
teneka | Houston, TX | 09/06/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this CD for one particular song: After the Pain. I could relate to this song so much that I could listen to it all day, every day. But there were a few others that I also enjoyed: No Pain (No Gain) is another alltime favorite of mine. I also liked Love Days, Unsolicited Advice, and Say it Again. I didn't care for the others so much; however, it is a great CD for Betty fanatics!"

"Ok, you may know Betty from "Clean up Woman" or "Tonight is The Night" days. Years later--and this is a recurrent theme I generally discuss--she put out a monster soul single "No Pain, No Gain" which found it's place in hip-hop saturated urban radio, hence, among the pantheons of classic tunes that will always get a positive response whenever it is played--'cause it's real. "Mother Wit" also has the great "After the Pain" which also features some of Wright's gospel-tinged vocals. This is totally hard to find, totally satisfying. Get it now!"
The Wright Comeback CD

"With the ever changing shifts in music, Betty Wright experienced a huge lull in her career in the early to mid 80s. However, in 1988, she again took center stage, taking the industry by storm. Wright exceeded in teaching all the R&B diva wanna-beez (i.e., Paula Abdul, Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson) how real Soul music was suppose to sound with "Mother Wit".From beginning to end, this CD is fantastic. Arguably the best effort of her entire career (with 1989's "4U2NJOY" coming in a close second), Betty has simply never sounded better. The lyrics are clever, witty and wise and are delivered with sheer exuberance. With huge singles like "After the Pain" and "No Pain, No Gain", it was such a joy to hear Betty all over the radio once again. She proved you can't keep a good woman down.If you only buy one Betty Wright CD, this should be the one! A pure listening delight."
