Jazz and gospel music play a big part in the soul vocal art of Margie Joseph, who cites, not surprisingly, Sarah Vaughan and Aretha Franklin as her major influences. Born in Mississippi and based in New Orleans, where she was attending Dillard University at the time of these sessions, Joseph was one of the most sophisticated song stylists ever to record for Stax. Featured on this reissue of her two long-unavailable albums for the label are her scintillating renditions of two Diana Ross and the Supremes classics--"Stop! In the Name of Love" and "My World Is Empty without You"--both given the extended Hot Buttered Soul treatment à la Isaac Hayes.
