It is the first release by the Hit and Run label the flip side to the 45 is excellent also. There was also a Cd titled -Voice From The Shadows on Soulscape.

i'm looking at the inlay card for The Voice from the Shadows CD.

 

Born Selma, Alabama August 1943. Went to College, worked as a teacher before going into music. Married Chuck Cooper and worked as a duo. First recorded at Muscle Shoals in 1968. Had 4 sessions in total in MS with various producers with the final one being in 1977 but seemingly no commercial success. Quit music in 1982 but returned a decade or so later to play some local gigs. 

 

The CD is a very good collection with some first class material on it. Just another talented artist who never got the breaks, nor the success she deserved. A familiar tale for many Soul singers from the 60s and 70s.

There's also at least two 45s on ABet by her and husband Chuck, under the names of Chuck and Marianne.

One song being a version of "Let's walk the streets together" which is on the CD.

Played by me first time out at the wonderful Soul Essence!

 

Great record and excellent CD.

 

I met her nephew working in a record shop in Sheffield Alabama, about 6-7 years ago.

 

He was so proud of his aunt! :)

Hi Pat - and anyone else interested in the Mary Gresham CD and 45 -

 

The CD is available here - www.garryjcape.com/sscd7008.htm

 

The 45 is available here - www.garryjcape.com/hitandrun2.htm

 

I won't take up your time telling you all how great they both are - those who already have them will know that already, and those who don't have them need to find out for themselves .... :yes: :yes:
