Jackie Verdell - Lay My Burnden Down. Little did I know it would take a decade for the album from which that was taken to find a UK release but thanks to clever ol' Ace for making the effort. In 1983 she cut this album for Spring Records with hit soulman Joe Simon producing, but Joe resisted any temptation to soulify Jackie's authentic sound just bringing in top gospel, R&B and jazz talent (would you believe Charles Mingus on trumpet or one Houston E Whitney on backing vocals?) to give a solid accompaniment to gospel evergreens like "Lay My Burden. Down" and "Can I Get A Witness". Timeless stuff and a minor classic of its kind.
