Clydie King: Direct Me [Lizard, 1971]
Clydie has a voice that's more sly Diana than robust Martha and addresses the title plea to Gabriel Mekler, who (this time, anyway) proves neither as sly nor as robust as Berry Gordy. Luckily for her, Clydie also has a studio job with a backup trio called the Blackberries. I wonder when solo LPs from Venetta Fields and Shirley Matthews are expected. Not too soon, I hope.
