Marsha Hunt - Attention! (1973)

Soul-infused 70s rock. Almost sounds like some good ol' boy shit, only it's helmed by a kickass black lady who refuses to shave her legs/otherwise embrace gender roles ("Man to Woman"), then turns out a seething, wrenching take on "Southern Man" that should be the definitive version. So, so good. How in the fuck does a record like this slip through the cracks.

Track listing:
1. Good Morning
2. Bad Boogie
3. Man to Woman
4. Will They Still
5. Southern Man
6. Rolling
7. Baby John
8. Sister of Mercy
9. Black Flower
10. Dance Hall

  2. Well, that fugly album cover did the lady no justice. But your description has me hungry to dig in. Thank you for bringing this record to light.
