I’m Ashamed, But I’m Not Sorry

by Kevin Vegetables on August 8, 2008

Hey, people, listen — I’ve been trying really hard these past 38 years to keep abreast of matters. I don’t know how this happens. It’s possibly that there simply is so so very much beauty.

What happened was I somehow missed out on Millie Jackson until recently. But the discovery process since then has been delightful.

Today’s song is from 1974′s Caught Up, a concept album in which Jackson examines both the feelings of a married man’s mistress and those of his wife. There are songs (you probably know “If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don’t Want To Be Right”), and there are raps (the 1970s talking kind, not the breakdancing kind). The raps are revealing and colorful (like when she says that one of the advantages of bring the mistress is “when you go to the laundromat, you don’t have to wash nobody’s funky drawers but your own”).

Jackson’s blunt, often hilarious raps made her a popular live act. I just adore that combination of serious singing talent and insane humor. She had the courage to be herself, which has paid off for 40 years (she still performs, in addition to working as a DJ in Texas).

No Vegetable about Millie Jackson would be complete without posting the cover of her 1989 live album Back To The S–t!, which features a grimacing Jackson on the toilet (the shoe in the hand really tops it off for me — I like to imagine her hitting herself in the head with it). If you dare to investigate this album further, you can hear her utterly destroying the audience — first with her passionate singing, then with filthy raps like “Muffle That Fart.”

Seriously, man, what’s not to love?

Have the software meant for around 10 secs, you should not bounce the application as well as draw more difficult. Let go the knee, in addition to perform in opposition. This can be accomplished 3 times either side.She’s got spine with respect to assert farewell also to boost Better reality, the woman’s to begin with book within Year many years. Girl’s Country, a album’s first of all track, is a touch of overcooked along with synths, yet it is as nice as anything at all about Rihanna’s go on concept album.
