Marva Whitney - Don't Let Our Love Fade Away - Excello

70s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, March 01, 2012 11:31:41

Marva Whitney got her musical training from the tender age of three as a member of her family's gospel group in Kansas City. She later moved on to study music in college and also joined local RnB groups before she joined the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, as one of his background singing divas in the late 1960s. Whitney got a chance to record as a solo artist in 1969 and had a promising start with her Top 20 hit "It's My Thing (You Can't Tell Me Who to Sock It To). Although her subsequent records did not do as well commercially as her debut, her work has been sampled heavily over the years and still command admiration and appreciation from soul and funk aficinados worldwide. Enjoy!
