Outernational Sounds proudly presents one of the most unusual and mysterious private press albums of all — Betty Lou Landreth’s Betty Lou, a stunning, under-the-radar soul-jazz set, available again for the first time since its original 1979 release. Beautiful, one-of-a-kind blends of funk, disco, country, soul and jazz, from lush head-nodder I Can’t Stop to the snapping disco funk of Get Up And Dance. An outsider classic featuring heavyweight Detroit insiders like Tribe trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, Motown’s Funk Brothers, Geri Allen, Grant Green sideman Emmanuel Riggins (Karriem’s dad), and Isaac Hayes collaborator Travis Biggs. Licensed from the Landreth family.
