Trading Places present a reissue of Doris Duke's Woman, originally released in 1975. Georgia-born soul singer Doris Curry began her career as Doris Whittingham after marrying Gus Whittingham of the Cadillacs and after backing Nina Simone on live album A Very Rare Evening, Swamp Dogg renamed her Doris Duke for her acclaimed solo debut, I'm A Loser. The 1975 swansong, Woman, recorded for the British Contempo label and arranged by Gerry Shury, gets it contours from Ultrafunk's top-notch rhythm section and enhanced by the Armada Orchestra. A neglected classic that remained unjustly obscure, it has superb takes of "Woman Of The Ghetto" and Mavis Staples' "Pick Up The Pieces," plus spirited originals. Licensed by Cherry Red.
