Shirley Brown, 'Woman to Woman' (Stax)

7
Woman to Woman
Critical Mass
Release Date: September 13, 2011
Label: Stax

by Mike Powell

Soul singers comfort themselves with misery, and in a way, Woman to Woman can't even be sad -- it's too contented in its beaten-down procession through ballads about wrongdoing men and the women who wait for them, as if in a dream. The title track's the heartbreaker: She ?calls a number stuffed in his ?pocket. Does she yell? No. She ?levels, she asks. She even tries?to sympathize.
