Sunday Soul - Is It Love Or Desire

When it comes to smokin', sizzlin', gritty, sexified funk, there's only one stop you should plan on making: Betty Davis. Although commercially a failure in the early 70's, her music artistically outclassed its contemporaries in ways that just weren't appreciated at the time. Thankfully that's changed with time, and there's been a resurgence in interest in her material. With that resurgence comes some amazing releases from Light In the Attic Records, including Is It Love Or Desire, the previously unreleased fourth album from Davis. On it, Davis shows how strong a woman she was and doesn't pull any punches. Check out the title track below, but seriously, this album is one that you need to listen to for yourself.

It will probably turn out to have just been lust. Maybe it looks like love though.
