    Thanks, Reese!

    This is at the top of my "must have" list! I love her voice. She has endured so much over the years and to still have a testimony...well, count me in.

    Get it, Merry! So glad you've endured.

    I had no idea of her personal trials over the past decade. How awful that must’ve been to lose both her legs following an accident. What a lady. I always loved her voice and I had one of her solo albums but I don’t remember playing it very often. But this one I’ll be sure to get. I would love to hear her singing gospel music.

    Bumping this thread so we can continue the discussion about Merry Clayton's new CD in one place.

    There was a really nice full-paged article in yesterday's NY Times re Merry and the new album. I'm not sure everyone will be able to access it but I will post the link anyway.

    Ain't it the truth!

    Thank you for sharing this, Reese. It's an inspiration to see and hear Miss Merry Clayton. I have two copies of the new CD -- one I preordered and the other was gift from someone who knows I love her. I haven't had a chance to listen yet -- so much going on -- but I expect to love it. She'd better win a Grammy! There is no other voice of her era [[besides Bettye Lavette) that sounds as untouched by time.
