Female "big Beat" Ballads - Your Faves?

Recommended Posts

I love tunes like Sweets - "something about my baby" or Big Maybelle's "it's raining."

 

I'm sure people out there have tons of other great suggestions. I am looking to blow up my want list!

 

thanks!

Ruby and the romantics. We can make it. Kapp. Just a sublime production with awesome vocals

Could someone please post a clip for the people that will not have heard it.

 There you go Steve x

Blimey - where to start?  :huh: Here's a few to be going on with:-

 

Judy Clay - Haven't got what it takes

Jo-Ann Garrett - A whole new plan

Barbara McNair - It was never like this

The Tears - Good luck my love

The Kittens - Is it over baby

Clydie King - Missing my baby / Soft & gentle ways - virtually any of the Imperial sides

Jean King - Don't say goodbye

Clara Wood - You're after my guy

Irma Thomas -It's starting to get to me now

Lainie Hill - Ain't I worth a dime (flip to time marches on)

Annette Poindexter - Wayward dream

Lesley Gore - A girl in love

Peggy March - Losing my touch

Royalettes - Only when you're lonely

Esther Phillips - Just say goodbye

Aretha Franklin - One step ahead

Odds & Ends - Let me try

Timi Yuro - Can't stop running away

Pat Thomas - The long, long night (flip to I can't wait until..)

The Geminis - No more tomorrow

Gladys Knight - Tell her you're mine

Sylvia St. Claire - It hurts to see you happy

Gay Jamison - Stay another day

Jaibi - You got me

Johnnie Mae Matthews - I have no choice

 

Also how about Dionne Warwick - Walk on by? I remember Dean dropping it at Parkers sometimes, how good it sounded loud

Enjoyed this thread very much. Good to see and hear some tunes that were new to me. Only thing is that some seemed a little bit too fast to be beat ballads, more medium tempo but I'm not complaining. More please.
