Betty Davis Nasty Gal LP (Color Vinyl)
Limited Edition Color Vinyl LP!
First Official Re-Release! Remastered From The Original Tapes!
Includes 8-Page Booklet With Liner Notes & Rare Photos!
Betty Davis was riding high in the '70s. A new record label, a series of high
profile relationships, and intensely sexualized live performances made her a
rising star. It seemed like everything was aligned to take the music world by
storm. So Betty and band got back into the studio where she would act as writer,
producer, and performer, creating what she thought would be her definitive
What emerged was the unapologetically uncompromising, self-referential 1975
album Nasty Gal. Now – over forty years later – Light In The Attic Records is
proud to announce the vinyl reissue of this final Island Records-release by
unparalleled funkstress Betty Davis.
The re-release features liner notes by John Ballon (writer of the Wax Poetics
Betty Davis cover story in 2007), original album art, complete lyrics and rare
studio and stage photographs. Ahead of its time, Nasty Gal shows Betty digging
deeper into her musical and cultural expression than ever before, and delivers
from every angle. This is Hendrix and Sly Stone inspired funk-rock at its
finest. From the title track's mutant groove and grunt to her onetime husband
and jazz legend Miles Davis's co-written ballad "You and I", this lady will tear
your heart out! Betty’s time is now…
"If you were to draw a diagram of funk music in the early 70's, Betty Davis
would be dead center." - The New Yorker
