Betty Davis

They Say I'm Different

Ms Davis's unique story, still sadly mostly unknown, is unlike any other in popular music. Betty wrote the song 'Uptown' for the Chambers Brothers before marrying Miles Davis in the late '60s, influencing him with psychedelic rock, and introducing him to Jimi Hendrix - personally inspiring the classic album 'Bitches Brew.' Her 1974 sophomore album 'They Say I'm Different' features a worthy-of-framing futuristic cover challenging David Bowie's science fiction funk with real rocking soul-fire, kicked off with the savagely sexual 'Shoo-b-doop and Cop Him' (later sampled by Ice Cube). Her follow up is full of classic cuts like 'Don't Call Her No Tramp' and the hilarious, hard, deep funk of 'He Was a Big Freak.'LP - Deluxe vinyl pressing housed in old school tip-on gatefold jacket.
