Saturday Soul: Mother's Finest

Saturday Soul: Mothers Finest

This Saturday Soul Session is so funky it should come with its own anti-perspirant.

In this vintage performance by little-known but legendary rock band Mother's Finest , frontwoman Joyce Kennedy is the definition of the term, "vocal power-house." Her sound is a fiery hybrid of Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, and Gladys Knight. But make no mistake about it, Kennedy's voice is remarkably original, and capable of singing quivers into your vertebrae.

From the 1977 album, Another Mother Further, here's "Baby Love":

I usually hate funk music but something about this song is sick. I think it's the way she sings it.

Outstanding. If you notice if this was in 1977 and the movie 10 came out in around 1978 or 79 you can see how Bo Derek stole the hair style from us. Thank you for bringing back this wonderful memory
