QUEEN OF THE NIGHT--Re-released, at last!
Edwin Harper | USA | 11/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are many underrated singers who seems to have floundered about during the 70's--Bonnie Bramlett and Etta James are just two who come to mind. And then, there's Maggie Bell who never received the recognition in the United States that she deserved. QUEEN OF THE NIGHT is a flawless representation of what Maggie Bell was made of--rock, funk, and blues. She starts off with CADDO QUEEN, pushed to the limit by Ralph MacDonald's insistent percussion (is that a washboard and thimbles in the background?) and ends, almost breathlessly with a pensive TRADE WINDS. A must have!"
Every Picture Tells A Story. . .

"Remember that lost gem from Rod Stewart? That is where Maggie's whiskey-drenched voice was first heard by me. I have still have the original two solo efforts by her on vinyl. So played out! So excited to see them released on CD! Maggie has one of those once in a life time voices. Please experience her renditions, you will NOT be disappointed!"
25 years have not diminished the power of this album

"Maggie Bell's music alternately simmers and boils with passionate playing and singing. According to the liner notes, Bette Midler considered this one of the "greatest" albums she'd heard. Maggie Bell should have continued to record through the years, her voice is that powerful and unique. The album has gone everywhere with me for 25 years and finally it's on cd-thank you Germany, for putting this and "Suicide Sal" out."
