Do what she says.

"Before the reissue of this record on CD, I was under the mistaken impression that all of Miriam's recordings were traditional, such as 1988's Sangoma. I stand corrected with this album. Apparently, most of the world already knew she was more than a little adept at jazz, pop and funk as well. On KEEP ME IN MIND she expertly blends styles through some popular tunes of the day (Down on the Corner, In My Life, and a highlight for me, Stephen Stills' For What it's Worth),with her own compositions (Lumumba, Kulala) and a couple of Van Morrison tunes (Brand New Day, I Shall Sing). Miriam wrote new liner notes regarding her career and a recent Three Divas tour with Odetta and Nina Simone. What a show that must have been! On the back she writes "To all my friends, fans and enemies alike: Please keep me in mind, for what it's worth. It's a brand new day for me." It may be 32 years later, but I will do what she says."
