Consumer Guide Reviews:

Sweet Linda Divine [Columbia, 1969]
Linda Tillery is a somewhat excessive black girl with a razor in her larynx who did a pretty good record with the Loading Zone. Now Al Kooper, wearing his producer suit, has gotten hold of her and indulged her excesses as if they were his own. It was five years between "Highway 61 Revisited" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want." Was it really worth the wait? D+
