Product Notes

Most people don't know that, hidden on James Brown's milestone anthem "Cold Sweat," and in all of James Brown's productions, is one of the best-kept secrets in soul music: Mrs. Martha High. She is the one who sings that crazy soprano note at the very beginning of the song and she is the one who sang behind James Brown for about 35 years. She was with Brown and the JB's in Boston on the infamous night after the Martin Luther King assassination, she flew with him in the dangerous Vietnam skies to entertain the US soldiers, and was also in Zaire celebrating the "Rumble in the Jungle" between Ali and Foreman. Martha was truly a friend, confidant, and supporter of the godfather of soul. Maybe she was just too young and shy to jump over the other soul divas to ask for a solo record. In 2016, things are different. Mrs. Martha High is the hardest working woman in show business. She is still touring worldwide as a lead singer of Maceo Parker's band, and, finally, has recorded the album she always wanted to make. Eleven killer original tunes produced and arranged by Luca Sapio, the Italian soul ambassador, in true analog sound. The tunes evoke the best productions of the golden era of Southern soul as well as the sonic landscapes of the Italian soundtracks of the '60s. This record is made of truth, soul, love, and pain - a full spectrum of emotions that only Marth High could deliver to your ears. This is not a revival, this is not retro, this is now.
