    Obviously being forgotten over decades, these ladies can't be remembered too often !

    Best regards!

    Betty Wright, Wright Back At You, 1983, Epic England, EPC 25358

    Powerwoman!
    (But this one is one of the weakest productions, by Marlon Jackson) Typically for the 80ies mainstream pop. Too bad.
    Deep respect for Betty Wright, nonetheless.

    Beth Hart, War In My Mind, 2019, Provogue EU, 2LP, PRD 75951

    The softer side of Hart. No bleeding fingers as shown on back cover photo.

    Ah, Beth Hart. I first became aware of her while watching a Joe Bonamassa Blu-Ray, Live from the Beacon Theater circa 2011. Great show, with guest appearances from Hart, Paul Rodgers and John Hiatt. Kind of a "must own" if you're into watching rock/blues concerts or live music in general. Haven't ever been a super fan of Joe's voice, but it works on some tracks. More importantly, he is a virtuoso with the guitar and pretty humble. Also has the ability to meld his style and that is something I don't often see. When Paul Rodgers comes out for example, Bonamassa ends up sounding just like Paul Kossoff on Fire and Water and Walk in my Shadow. Even his drummer, Tal Bergman was able to do that, reproducing that "slap" style sound Simon Kirke had. Sounded like Free but a smidge better thanks to Joe and Tal.

    Agreed! A thrilling performance by JB and BH, indeed.

    Ah, Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa. Note that nipple alert:



    Also note what can be done with mainly just two chords. A thrilling classic!

    Best regards!

    Along with Beth Hart, the next duchess surely is the most competent female voice of today. I think Susan Tedeschi wasn't mentioned yet in this thread. Here's a shot from the show where the Tedeschi Trucks Band almost completely recorded (Thorn Tree in the Garden is missing) the groundbreaking Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs album live at Lockn. Also note the terrific guitar work of Derek Trucks, her husband:

    Best regards!

    Yes, it's sad. Anyway, she clearly had her best days with Chicken Shack and was responsible for the decomposition of Fleetwood Mac's music..

    Best regards!
