|MARGIE JOSEPH Self Titled Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP
Margie Joseph was never a huge name in Soul - she never became as famous as Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, or Tina Turner. But she is a talented, charming singer with a recognizable delivery; although greatly influenced by Franklin, Joseph has a softer, more girlish delivery.
Joseph moved from Stax to Atlantic in 1972, and recorded this self-titled LP the following year. Produced by Arif Mardin, Margie Joseph offers an enjoyable mix of Northern and Southern soul styles.
Much of the album is devoted to covers, and the songs that Joseph embraces range from Ellington Jordan's "I'd Rather Go Blind" and Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" to Brook Benton's "I'll Take Care of You". Joseph also picks a Dolly Parton song, putting a soul spin on "Touch Your Woman."
