The Doctor is a music collector since the eighties, occasional DJ.
His ear for beauties is amazing.

This selection is about women power and incredible voices. A real joy and again a great mix.

All the feminine icons of soul music united in one beautiful mix.

And some that are really new to me.
Such as Dorothy & Oma & Zelpha or Rhetta Hughes who was featured on the track “Mother’s Prayer” on the 1971 album “As Serious as a Heart-Attack” by Melvin Van Peebles or the 1973 self-titled album by Brenda Patterson, the Bette Midler album Songs for the “New Depression” (1976). Hughes also vocalized on the track “The Circle” on the 1977 album Loading Zone by guitarist Roy Buchanan. In the early 1970s Hughes branched out into acting, her first evident credit being the 1971 blaxploitation film Sweet Sweetback.

Thanks Dr. Strangelove for this trip.
