Yvonne Fair was always a favorite of mine, her brashness, hutzpah along with that hardened raucous voice resonated deeply with me the first time I heard…
It Should Have Been Me”. I was in Portland; OR. at a friend’s house and right there in front of me was “The Bitch Is Black”, a solo recorded LP and a must for any record collector. Get it now.

I contacted Eugene Tambourine in Brooklyn to see if he’d be interested in doing an exclusive rework for us of Yvonne’s classic “Funky Music Sho Nuff Turns Me On”, the result is (E.T.’s Loops of Fury) which has been described as the definitive version of the song. “It’s very loopy, but kinda organic and structured at the same time. I was inspired by the groovy space between her main vocal bits actually.” says Eugene.

Another little known tidbit Diana Ross’ Lady Sings the Blues from 1972 watch it again; Yvonne Fair is in it as is Isabell Sanford and a slew of others. Enjoy.
