I’ve Lived the Life b/w Nothing I’d Rather Be 7″ (Forte Records, 1975)

Today’s track was picked by Freeform DJ Isaac. Let it warm you up inside.

A Kansas City native, Marva W. Taylor (formerly Marva Whitney) opened for many soul and funk groups passing through the Midwest, and in the process, turned down offers to tour with both Little Richard and Bobby Bland before agreeing to become a featured vocalist with the James Brown Revue. On this track, Taylor lays down just a flat-out tasty, smooth, gliding description of her love for her man. Hot damn is it powerful!

[Buy the single for a lot of money on Northern Soul 45s]
