The Lost Queen Of New Orleans Soul is a compilation album by American soul singer Betty Harris, released in October 2016 via Soul Jazz Records.

Betty Harris is an American soul singer. Her recording career in the 1960s produced three hit singles that made the US Billboard R&B and Billboard Hot 100 charts: "Cry To Me" (1963), "His Kiss" (1964) and "Nearer To You" (1967). However, her reputation among soul music connoisseurs far exceeds her commercial success and her recordings for the Jubilee and Sansu record labels are now highly sought after by fans of Northern soul and deep soul.

 

The Lost Queen Of New Orleans Soul gathers most of Harris’ A and B-sides from 1965 through 1968, all of which came out on the Sansu label, as well as both sides of a 1969 single released on SSS International. Harris had more commercial success with earlier output on Jubilee though. Sansu wasn't widely distributed outside New Orleans, so these singles didn't stand much of a chance on a national level.

Only the grieving ballad "Nearer To You" charted, while the weeping likes of "What A Sad Feeling" and "I'm Evil Tonight" (what a title), along with a clutch of the B-sides, deserve to be known by more than devout soul parishioners.

Her work didn't make her rich - she left music shortly after the release of the 1969 7" that forms the beginning and end of this anthology - but it made her a favorite beloved by some.

This release is a wonderfully presented, anthology.

Check out the album tracks: “I’m Gonna Git Ya”; “Show It”; “12 Red Roses”; “I’m Evil Tonight” and “There’s A Break In The Road”.

This double album 2LP record set is on black heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with inner sleeves and digital download code, pressed in the UK.
