The Soul of a Lady

In the late 70's early 80's Laura Lee was a rising soul star in the US. By that time soul was loosing ground fast and a lot of artists were making the move to the commercially much more successful disco. So did Laura. At least she started to make this move. Then she was diagnosed with cancer, so she struck a deal with God. If she was to survive this she would put all her talents in his service. As so happened. For 20 years you could only hear Laura Lee sing in church. Just a few years back Laura had a revelation. The Lord wanted her to put her talents to a wider use. Ever since Laura made a few 'public appearances'.
The CD that I'm holding is obviously a PC-burned copy, which makes it an illegal copy. Since I've never found an original album with this track list it is also a home compilation. But......since I got the album of Laura Lee personally (thanks Glen) it is.....An unique collectors item (yes she signed it as well).
The songs on the album differ quite a bit in quality (composition, recording technique and dynamics) but happen to be one of the best collections of tearjerkers I've ever heard. Listen to track 11 - Two Pillows (my favorite) and than tell me it didn't bring tears to your eyes.

The password = "scrooge".
