Consumer Guide Album

Millie Jackson: Millie Jackson [Spring, 1972]
Producer Raeford Gerald's "My Man, a Sweet Man" and "I Miss You Baby" are as melodically upbeat as Jackson's own "Ask Me What You Want," and she delivers a ghetto sermon so unfashionably judgmental it makes me want to shout amen just to be contrary. But most of the rest is so nondescript that even Jackson's big, rough, tremendously vital voice can't bring it to life. Marginal. B+
