Betty Davis - They Say I'm Different (1973)

Post image

This is one of those records that would have really frightened the normals. Especially considering it was the early 70’s.

It’s sleazy and confronting. Just think of a funky version of Wendy O Williams of the Plasmatics fame - both her stage performance and at times, her raunchy vocals. It’s completely in your face!

That’s why Betty Davis remained largely a cult figure. She was just too wild a ride for most. Miles Davis, her husband for less than 12 months, just couldn’t handle her.

This is a great record, just don’t let your neighbours here it.

RIP Betty Davis who died on February 9th
