Denise LaSalle - Here I Am Again - Westbound

70s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, June 02, 2010 21:50:02

Born Denise Craig, LaSalle started her singing career in her local church choir. Inspired by such greats as Ruth Brown and LaVern Baker she also wrote material for others and it was as a songwriter she got connected to Chess records in Chicago, a city which she moved to in her early twenties. Her breakthrough came a few years later when her 1971 Westbound recording "Trapped By A Thing Called Love" got a lot of both local and regional play. When the label was sold to MCA in 1975 LaSalle together with many other acts where shuffled aside and never got the promotion and attention that they deserved. This is the title track from her last album on the label. Enjoy!

"Here I Am Again"
