3. Without Love (There Is Nothing)
4. Please Send Me Someone to Love
5. Another Woman's Man
6. Sufferin' With the Blues

10. I've Been There

12. Break-a-Way

Strangely overlooked soul record from the Soul Queen of New Orleans going out to cut deep, and doing so, and to be sweet, and being that, and to display vulnerability, and displaying that thanks to her voice perhaps accidentally being isolated way at the top of the mix

Usually considered a masterpiece by those who manage to hear it
