Denise LaSalle R I P

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It's all over the net & Facebook that Denise LaSalle has died.

I'd expect her local newspaper (the Jackson Sun) to be reporting this fact but so far they have nothing about her passing (though they did a big piece back in October when she had a leg amputated).

I have no reason to doubt this sad information though.

Come to Bed and Here I am are a couple of my favourites. She became a really big deal to me when I started collecting Malaco at the start of the eighties.

Saw her on a bill with Mosley and Johnson, Johnnie Taylor and Bobby Bland circa 87. You think these people will go on for ever but hopefully their music will.

This is sad news, I had the pleasure of meeting Denise a number of times in visits to the USA as well as interviewing her for my radio show on Kiss FM -London back in the day. An incredible talent, a lady of strong character, who didn't suffer fools. My fave from Denise Lasalle is the 60s release 'A Love Reputation' on Tarpon / Cadet (USA). A superb singer who will be surely missed to those of us who favor the real deal. My condolences go out to her family and friends. R.I.P Denise Lasalle

Dr Bob Jones.
