Betty Wright: Danger High Voltage [Alston, 1974]
In which the entire T.K. Productions gang--Willie Clarke, Casey & Finch, Little Beaver, Tommy Thomas, Clarence Reid, Bo Horne--pitch in on six prime Miami originals and native-sounding imports from Detroit, New Orleans, and New York. Like all but the greatest girl-group voices of the '60s, Wright's not an original stylist, but she's never sounded brighter or sassier, and she's always sounded bright and sassy. On her own "Tonight Is the Night" she also sounds sad, happy, confused, determined, virginal, and horny.
