Congratulations to Ecko Records For the second year in a row winning the Jus' Blues Music Award for 'Best Blues & Soul Label Of The Year"2009th The price was handed over at the gala concerts over two nights at the Historical Daisy Theater in Memphis in early August.
Some of Ecko's roster of artists performed, but not so Sweet Angel, Who was already contracted to a concert in Alabama. Ecko has just released Sweet Angel's (real name Clifetta Dobbins) 3rd CD for the label, Bold Bitch! By the way, perhaps it's not unfair to call Ecko a "bitch of a label!
We will play songs from Sweet Angel's CD on the Smokestack website. It has a nice mix of blues and Southern soul songs. Daddy B. Nice, http://www.southernsoulrnb.com/newcds2009.cfm, give the CD 4 out of 5, "... a gem of a CD" - - - "... Southern Soul of the highest order."
And another by the way, do you know what "bitch" stands for?
