Superb early 50s r&b from a forgotten female vocalist | Oakland CA | 10/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lula Reed is an acquired taste that's well worth acquiring. Her high voice is deceptive -- shrill at first, on subsequent listening it has its own authenticity and charm. Backup on these r&b tracks is superb, typical of King Records in the early '50s. Reed's style is smart and soulful, never cloying or sentimental as she warns her man not to be "a watchdog over me," threatens to go to Mexico, and in one memorably poetic tune says, "Take the funny man and the money man and leave the honey man for me." At once subtle and streetwise. Unfortunately, no one seems to know a thing about Reed; like her music, she's "gone!""
"What A Voice"
James M. Mitchell | Kansas City, Mo. United States | 11/01/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The most unusual voice in the history of R & B. I am impressed with the entire c.d. The backing band of Sonny Thompson was tight and really cooking. "I'll Drown In My On Tears" was my mom and dad's song. They had the good fortune of seeing them live on many ocassions. Where is Lula Reed today. Whether she is alive or gone to the great beyond, she certainly could teach these so called "divas" of today a thing or to about bringing a lyric across. I recommend it highly. Some people may not be able to get pass the voice, but there is no one better in my opinion. *****!!!!!"
Miss Lula
Nae-Nae | Columbus, OH | 11/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In reference to Miss Lula. I call her that because she and my mom were very good friends many year's ago. They sang in church together with Professor Harold Boggs in a little known place in Ohio, called Gypsum. Miss Lula moved to Cleveland, Ohio with her family after her mom passed away. As a matter of fact, her son and I were born only 4 days apart. By the way, yes, she is still alive. She's alive and well and living for the Lord. Maybe, she will see your reviews, and perhaps it will make her heart glad knowing that there are still people interested in her and her music."
