Kim Tolliver Come & Get Me I'm Ready

A very worthy reissue on the late great Kim Tolliver!!!!

During a recording career than spanned two decades, Cleveland based Kim Tolliver released just two albums, and only one under that name. Recorded for Chess in 1973, "Come And Get Me - I'm Ready" is a classic deep soul tour-de-force, reminiscent of and up there with anything by recently rediscovered R&B heroines Bettye LaVette and Candi Staton. Her producer/husband Freddy Briggs, based known for his classic Margie Joseph Stax productions, brings out the finest in Ms. Tolliver who sadly passed away in 2007 without ever receiving the recognition she so truly deserved. Digitally remastered in 24 bit from the original analog Chess masters.
