Since her belated вЂњdiscoveryвЂ� following the club scene success of the moody single See & DonвЂ™t See, itвЂ™s been generally assumed that Marie Lyons must have been a James Brown associate. Presumably his hands guided these late 60s recordings because she was a fine soul stylist and recorded for DeLuxe, a subsidiary of the King label Brown once called home вЂ“ but there is no evidence to support this. In fact, biographical details on Lyons are almost non-existent and, though she may indeed be a true prodigy, one canвЂ™t help but think there are illuminating facts about her to be uncovered and a story to be told. DeLuxe pushed three singles from this rare album, including a storming version of Fever, but Lyons vanished completely once it was released. Certain reissue labels are lazier than others, however (some songs on this superb album arenвЂ™t even credited to the correct writers, her origins seem guessed at) and, though musically this is a must-have soul album, itвЂ™s a pity that itвЂ™s been bootlegged already and this legitimate reissue stands as the lesser achievement.
