Record Store Day 2015 Exclusive! Aside from the quality of the music on Wounded Woman the back story is quite compelling. We'll let the good folks at Soul Brother Records take it from here: Wounded Woman is one of the greatest Deep Southern Soul albums of all time. It was recorded at Broadway Studios Muscle Shoals in 1974 produced by David Johnson, in the same studio that Swamp Dogg used for his seminal albums by Doris Duke and Sandra Phillips. The album was licensed to Stax records Truth subsidiary label but only a couple of 45 were issued before Stax's demise. It was eventually released by Demon Records in the UK in 1989 to critical acclaim. That issue is now extremely sought after by Soul fans and collectors, copies change hands for up to £200. The album contains nine classic Soul cuts, including the bouncy title track, deep soul ballads of great intensity like "I'm Not Strong Enough To Love You Again" and "I'll See You Through" and three tracks that have been filling Modern Soul dance floors for years "Midnight Affair," "I Come Running Back" and "A Man Can't Be A Man." Every track on this album is superb, hence its popularity and demand. This album should have been as big as Shirley Brown's Woman To Woman which was released on the Truth label in the same year, it's that good, and Sandra would have been enjoyed the fame that Shirley attained.
