Bessie? Millie? Naw, fool! Denise--Ms Lasalle, that is.

"Admittedly, if you were not part of this scene, you'd probably never know--Ms Lasalle has written and recorded probably twice as many songs as that Roger Nelson guy and she has a following as devoted to her as strong as the Pokemon crazies are to Pikachu. She, however, doesn't get guest spots with RuPaul or does soda commercials like her comtemporary, Millie Jackson. Her stage shows are as rocking and raucous as say, a visit to BET's ComicView, but she keeps it considerably classy, especially when she does one of her Muscle Shoals and Delta tinged ballads. She has a performance nearly everyday somewhere in these United States in somewhat of an updating of the famed chitlin' circuit of years back and she's still layin' the law on them no-good lovers. We love her here in Oz, and until Malaco Records can come up with a box set or greatest hits on Malaco (like they did for Johnnie Taylor some years back), then we have the CDs like this classic with the tunes "Lady In The Streets" and "Down Home Blues" to play. (Besides, she is the singer they are REALLY playing in those R&B and blues joints across the nation.)"
