I wanted to take a quick minute to talk about Millie Jackson. Not sure of when she started, but I’ve been listening to her music for a very very long time since the seventies. In my opinion, she had a very nice soulful voice! But later in her career something seemed to have happened to her voice when the 80s came along. She did not sound the same at all. Not sure if it was drugs, smoking, or illness that caused her voice to change. Personally, I think this was one of the reasons her performances/albums became so vulgar at the end of the 80s. In other words, because she couldn’t sing any longer, she used vulgar comedy to try and sell her records. On top of that, the music changed too. Unfortunately, her music was a dying art, like so many. You know, she kind of reminds me of Macy Gray. If Macy just stayed off those damn drugs, and stayed sober enough, who knows? She could have been a modern-day (old) Millie! Millie has made many hits during the 70s, and here is one of my many favorites I remembered growing up. It’s a song that talks about a subject I witnessed many of my elders go through. The song is called “Leftovers,” release in 1975. Listen to it here on Spotify Mobile, OR Spotify Web.
