"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 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! In 1973, Davis would finally kick off her cosmic career with an amazingly progressive hard funk and sweet soul self-titled debut. Davis showcased her fiercely unique talent and features such gems as 'If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up' and 'Game Is My Middle Name.' The album Betty Davis was recorded with Sly & The Family Stone's rhythm section, sharply produced by Sly Stone drummer Greg Errico, and featured backing vocals from Sylvester and the Pointer Sisters. Her 1974 sophomore album They Say I'm Different features a worthy-of-framing futuristic cover challenging David Bowie's science fiction funk with real rocking soul-fire, kicked off with the savagely sexual 'Shoo-B-Doop and Cop Him' (later sampled by Ice Cube). Her follow -p is full of classic cuts like 'Don't Call Her No Tramp' and the hilarious, hard, deep funk of 'He Was A Big Freak.'"
