A more haunting, moodier rare soul journey you are very unlikely to ever take!

Milwaukee Jazz/Soulstress the unsung Soul Queen of Wisconsin but very little of her work actually got vinyl release, except her acclaimed album where she strolls through Jazz and Soul with consummate ease and class. All her recordings shimmer with depth and palpable passion.

Both sides of this elusive 45, were written and produced by her gifted manager Sy Letco "Too Soon You're Old" production glows with undercurrents of evocative jazz cradling her husky Soulful voice from one moving moment to the next. THIS IS CLASS! Delivered by two extreme talents coming together triggering a perfect storm of mid-paced Soul, decorated by a Ray Tabs Trio & Orchestra so in accord with this great lady's mood.

A top-top-tune, that was for so long eluding those intense collectors, trying to seek out special under-the-radar masterpieces.

This is one!
