"First official Betty Davis reissues. Mastered from the original tapes (First time since the '70s!). Previously unreleased bonus tracks. Betty recorded some of the finest punk-funk of all time, introduced Miles to Hendrix, and inspired generations. Each CD includes a deluxe 32-page booklet and elaborate digipak. New notes from Oliver Wang (O-Dub/Soul Sides), including Betty's second interview in over 25 years! For the first time, Betty's critically adored first two albums are being lovingly re-mastered from the original master tapes by Light In The Attic Records to sound as ferocious and revolutionary as they did when they first sprung on an unsuspecting world in the early '70s. In recent years, rappers from Ice Cube to Talib Kweli to Ludacris have rhymed over the intensely strong but sensual funk of Betty Davis. One can hardly imagine the genre-busting, culture-crossing musical magic of Outkast, Prince, Erykah Badu, Rick James, The Roots, or even the early Red Hot Chili Peppers without the influence of this R&B pioneer. Ms. Davis's unique story is unlike any other in popular music. Betty wrote the song 'Uptown' for the Chambers Brothers before marrying Miles Davis in the late '60s, influencing him with psychedelic rock, and introducing him to Jimi Hendrix -- personally inspiring the classic jazz-rock fusion album Bitches Brew."
