favourite female R&B singers
I tried to avoid the "bigger names", the legends like Aretha and Chaka Khan who I adore very much and focus on some singers who aren't quite so well known. this list is still a work in progress =) lol
2 6 01. Forever With You - Phyllis Hyman
I still remember the first time I heard Ms. Hyman's incredible voice. commanding, smooth, so incredibly rich....
3 8.5 02. Angel of the Night - Angela Bofill
always leaves me speechless
3 10 03. Petals: The Minnie Riperton Collection - Minnie Riperton
one of the sweetest,most beautiful voices i ever heard. Just how I imagine an angel to sound like.
1 0 04. Object of My Desire & Other Hits - Starpoint
Renee Diggs of starpoint had one heck of a voice!
1 0 05. Syreeta/Stevie Wonder Presents Syreeta - Syreeta
Syreeta's sweet voice always brings a smile to my face
1 0 06. Esther Satterfield - Once I Loved
I picked this LP up when I saw it in the 99 cent bin on a whim and I was astounded. I sat with my jaw open and had to shake myself to get up and turn over the record. If you ever come across any of Esther's work pick it up!Unfortunately I believe she only released two albums.
1 0 07. ghetto lament / mono 45 rpm single - SYLVIA ST. JAMES
One of the most beautiful women I've seen in my life and one heck of a singer. (featured on the cover of Side effect's "Goin Bananas" album on which she sung)
2 6 08. Window of a Child (Blu-Spec) - Seawind
Pauline Wilson of Seawind
