The legendary Kim Weston turn 75 today. She's best known for giving us the dance floor classic "Take Me In Your Arms," but she also had a recording career beyond Motown. Unfortunately, she's never really received her proper dues. Kim Weston could really wail!
My selection of the day comes from her 1970 lp released on Stax. It was produced in part by Isaac Hayes with Kim's husband Mickey Stevenson as executive producer. I may be wrong, but to my ears this has the Isaac Hayes signature symphonic psych soul stamp all over it. Kim got a chance to show off her chops on this smoldering performance which serves as a feminist blues testimonial for the times.
This one is near and dear to me not only because it's incredible, but there is some sentimental value attached. I share it with you today. Happy Birthday Kim Kim Kim!

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
