Martha High - A Little Taste Of Soul b/w Unwind Yourself (7")
The “funky diva” Martha High has been an integral part of James Brown’s life and career for more than 30 years. After a lifetime spent shoulder to shoulder with the Godfather of Soul, she flew to Tokyo and teamed up with Japanese funk ambassadors Osaka Monaurail to pay homage to the great Soul Sisters of the JB Revue.
Born in Victoria, Virginia and discovered by rock and roll pioneer Bo Diddley, Martha took off her career with soul band The Jewels, with whom she scored the national hit ‘Opportunity” in 1964. Soon The Jewels caught the attention of James Brown in the same year the group joined the “James Brown Revue”. Martha stayed with James Brown and continued to work with him as his personal vocalist for 32 years. Mr.Brown produced several Martha’s singles on his own label “People” such as “Georgy Girl”, “Try Me” and “Summertime”;meanwhile Martha launched her solo career in 1979 with the self-titled debut LP for “Salsoul Records”. Since then she released five albums under her name and, being one of the “hardest working ladies in the show business”, she became as well the lead singer of the legendary funky music machine Maceo Parker. Throughout her career Martha shared stages worldwide with some iconic artists like Little Richard, Jerry lee Lewis, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michael Jackson and George Clinton to name a few.
