Good Shit *****
Solid debut from this Florida 14-year-old soul sister.
As the shag zebra-striped outfit suggests, this album wasn’t bubblegum soul but rather a young girl singing like a woman of experience, the presentation making no apologies for the fact that this set is dripping like the dew on a waterbed. Wright handles the material with ease, contributing one cut herself and making the others her own. The backing band is in fine form, the arrangements wrapping around her vocals like a silk slip, Murcia snaking his guitar licks into the mix.
This includes all her first A and B sides, and plenty of other gems. While some cuts are simply classic, the entire set is strong. No filler this time around.
