Ella Washington

Recommended Posts

On another site I just posted a link to Geater Davis to let someone who hadn't heard him have a listen. I then wanted to give him a link to a similarly Southern sounding female vocal from the same period and studios in the shape of the incomparable Ella Washington. So far I haven't found any links to sound files other than stupid 3 second samples that don't do her justice at all.

Could any of the deep soul connoiseurs such as Garethx help me out with a sound file or two or a link to one?

Thanks for that Jazzyjas! That was not actually the kind of Ella Washington that I was after. I was looking for the earlier, slower sound. But I love that sound you put up! I think that must be Reggie Young on guitar. What a powerhouse of a record. Southern and Northern at the same time.
