"I recently saw and MET the great Gwen McCrae during her recent (2003) appearance at New York's Joe's Pub. She was warm, gracious and announced that she was leaving soul music for a return to GOSPEL music! She also revealed her true age (I won't tell), but she looked to be about 38!We also discussed this CD, "Psychic Hot Line." I have always liked this album, mainly because of "Loving Peter To Pay Paul," "Standing Room Only," and the title tune, which is very, very funky, indeed! Gwen has a distinctive voice, the type that when the sound of her voice is heard, you immediately think, "that's Gwen McCrae."I liked the fact that she incuded Aretha Franklin's "Today I Sing The Blues" here along with Mitty Collier/Fontella Bass's "The Soul of A Man."Since meeting Gwen, I aim to collect the few other CDs that I don't already own by her and look forward to her valiant foray into gospel. I just KNOW she'll be great."
