Funk diva Betty Davis was supposed to break big upon the release of her third album, Nasty Gal. After all, her Just Sunshine Records contract had been bought up by Chris Blackwell and Island Records, and they were prepared to invest not only big money in the recording, but in the promotion of the 1975 release. Davis and her well-seasoned road band, Funk House, entered the studio with total artistic control in the making of the album. This set contains classic and often raunchy street funk anthems such as the title track (with its infamous anthemic lyric: "...You said I love you every way but your way/And my way was too dirty for ya now...." ), "Talkin' Trash," "Dedicated to the Press," and the musically ancestral tribute "F.U.N.K." It also features the beautiful, moving, uncharacteristic ballad "You and I," co-written with her ex-husband, Miles Davis, and orchestrated by none other than Gil Evans. It's the only track like it on the record, but it's a stunner. The album is revered as much for its musical quality as its risqué lyrical content. This quartet distilled the Sly Stone funk-rock manifesto and propelled it with real force. Check the unbelievable twinning of guitar and bassline in "Feelins" that underscore, note for note, Davis' vocals. The drive is akin to hardcore punk rock, but so funky it brought Rick James himself to the altar to worship (as he later confessed in interviews). And in the instrumental break, the interplay between the rhythm section (bassist Larry Johnson and drummer Semmie "Nicky" Neal, Jr.) and guitarist Carlos Moralesis held to the ground only by Fred Mills' keyboards. In essence, the album is missing nothing: it's perfect, a classic of the genre in that it pushed every popular genre with young people toward a blurred center that got inside the backbone while smacking you in the face. Heard through headphones, its spaced out psychedelic effects, combined with the nastiest funk rock on the block, is simply shocking. The fact that the album didn't perform the way it should have among the populace wasn't the fault of Davis and her band, who went out and toured their collective butts off, or Island who poured tens of thousands of dollars into radio and press promotion, or the press itself (reviews were almost universally positive). The record seemed to rock way too hard for Black radio, and was far too funky for White rock radio. In the 21st century, however, it sounds right on time. Light in the Attic Records has remastered the original tapes painstakingly for the first North American release of this set on CD. As is their trademark, they've done a stellar job both aurally and visually, as the digipack is spectacular. The set also features a definitive historical essay by John Ballon.

Betty Davis, la pantera del funk

Sin ella, no existirían Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse o Janelle Monáe. Se ha ido al cielo, pero Betty Davis sigue siendo la pionera de las soul sisters de alma felina. La diosa del funk por excelencia. También fue la que le dio electricidad a un tal Miles Davis, cuya esposa iba a ser por poco tiempo. ¿Pero quién eras tú, Betty?

Miles Davis, con los dedos en el enchufe

En 1968 Miles Davis cae rendido al embrujo del duende eléctrico. Fascinado por la revolución psicodélica y funky de Jimi Hendrix y otros, como Sly Stone, el trompetista se metamorfosea y, de paso, trastorna el mundo del jazz.

«Thriller», anatomía de una obra maestra

En 1982, con «Thriller», el disco más vendido de todos los tiempos, Michael Jackson rompió las fronteras entre estilos, razas y público. De alguna manera, se convirtió en el primer y último disco transgénero... Pero especialmente fue un álbum que transformó totalmente la industria de la música popular del siglo XX.
