    "Baby (Don't You Leave Me)" is one of my favorites. I actually prefer it to the intended A-Side. Whenever I play it, I end up starting it over again because I love it that much. Everything from...

    It is new. It is on Verve and consists of material from some of the African-American female vocalists before her like Nina Simone, Nancy Wilson, Billie Holiday, etc.

    When I saw her in 1979, her opening act was Roger and Roger. After that, I don't remember any other opening acts besides Rhonda except for maybe a local comedian.

    STONEY END is a great recording. Both it and TIME AND LOVE probably would have fit well on the EVERYTHING IS EVERYTHING. In fact, it might have made sense to release STONEY END as the first single...

    SURRENDER was just a great album all around. As much as I like many of her later albums, IMO, the sound captured on early solo albums never surfaced again after LADY SINGS THE BLUES.
