Overview

Funk was first and foremost about raising consciousness, and feminine empowerment was a crucial part of that equation -- now women were creating music as raw, impassioned, and vital as their male counterparts, shattering the racial and sexual divides that had long placed restrictions on their self-expression. The first volume in the Harmless label's excellent I'm a Good Woman series captures distaff funk at its fiercest, digging deep for rare cuts and killer grooves that go far beyond the standard-issue soul diva collections. Just because the big names are few and far between doesn't mean this stuff isn't amazing, however -- check out highlights including Laura Lee's monumental "Crumbs off the Table," the Stovall Sisters' "Hang On in There," or Betty Davis' "Anti Love Song" for proof.
