La voix de sugar pie est rauque, puissante, chaude, son groove, comme pour toutes les chanteuses black ou métisses, est imparable. Tout ça dans une toute petite nana format de poche. Cette compilation est excellente car très documentée : beaucoup de photos et une bio assez complète. Les premiers titres s'enchainent avec le rythme d'un train de marchandises qui traverse le nord des US, à commencer par "soulful dress", son plus grand hit.
C'est un mélange de soul et de rythm and blues, puissant et inspiré. Bien sur sur il y a quelques titres plus commeriaux que d'autres et sans intérêt, mais ne passez pas à coté de cette compil si vous aimez la soul et le R'n'B. et la nostalgie bien sur !

Although she was frequently overshadowed by her more successful childhood friend, Etta James, Sugar Pie had a sassy manner and a bouncy rhythm all her own, as is well demonstrated on this release. She first came to my attention when my favorite vocalist, Tracy Nelson, told me that she had learned the song, I Want To Know, from the singing of Sugar Pie DeSanto. Intrigued, I checked her out, as Tracy has never steered me wrong on the subject of singers or musicians that I've never heard of. I first sampled Sugar Pie with an earlier Chess collection (Down In The Basement), but with the acquisition of Go Go Power, my admiration for her talents really took off.
Go Go Power begins with Sugar Pie's best known hit, Soulful Dress, which was later covered by NOLA singer/pianist Marcia Ball on a CD of the same title. Soulful Dress is about the most finger-snapping, get happy R & B number I think I've ever heard. I have never played this track for anyone who didn't immediately want to know who Sugar Pie is, and how she escaped their radar. While there is not a bad track on the whole CD, several songs stand out.
I Don't Wanna Fuss has a rhythm that doesn't quite invite description; it simply has to be heard and absorbed. Pure R&B, the backup instrumentals on this track are just heavenly, especially a single sax that comes in between one verse to chase Ms. DeSanto's amazing phrasing.
Next up is a duet with her childhood pal, Etta James. In The Basement is a tribute to the type of party that tends to spring up in the inner-city when times are tough but spirits run high. This song has long been associated with Etta James as much as Sugar Pie, and pops up frequently on reissues of Etta's early hits. I have been playing this CD in my car on rotation for months. Just these first three tracks alone managed to imbed themselves in my mind and heart so thoroughly that I was singing along within a few days. But it sure doesn't stop there. Slip In Mules is another finger-snapper on the order of Soulful Dress. Every time I listen to this CD, and I listen to it a lot, I find myself wondering how all these delightful songs had slipped past me for all these years. While I'm a little young to remember the period in question (1961-1966) I just can't believe that such a wealth of R&B material escaped my attention until now.
The CD includes a total of 24 tracks, and after just a few listens, I decided that each one had its own merits, and more than one style is represented - R&B, Rock and Roll, Blues, Funk, Soulful Ballads and even a touch of Country-Western. Can't Let You Go has a baseline remarkably similar to the previously mentioned I Want To Know, which unfortunately is not included here. There are three duets with Etta James, and a curiously country-infused number, It Won't Be Long, which (for me) seems to bring up images of Patsy Cline
Additional songs of note include Mama Didn't Raise No Fools, Do I make Myself Clear; and the wonderful wry rocker Ask Me. Last but not least, the delightful, earthy pure blues Use What You Got, which has become my favorite track. Sugar Pie's talk-song delivery is every bit as delicious as it is sassy.
If you have never heard of Sugar Pie DeSanto, or are even curious, this CD is a damn good place to start. If you know her but don't have this collection, what are you waiting for? You know you have to have it.
This CD is truly rockin' and Sugar Pie sounds a lot like Tina Turner--when she was with Ike. But DeSanto has a style all her own with better clarity than Turner especially on some of the slower type ballads on this set like "Ask Me," "Crazy Lovin'," "I Love You So Much," " Love Me Tonight," "Never Love A Stranger," and "Somewhere Down The Line" (one of three duets with Etta James).
The rest of the tracks are funky, with infectious beats, and explosive. Since it covers the time period between 1961-1966, when rock 'n' roll was in its infantile and evolving stages, it's not hard to imagine groups like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones listening to Sugar Pie to get their inspiration.
DeSanto is of mixed ethnicity, which explains her exotic looks, and was born Umpeylia Marsema Balinton. She was re-christened as "Little Sugar Pie" by band leader and hipster Johnny Otis, and not only is she a talented singer but she also wrote a lot of the songs included in this collection.
My favorites tracks are "In The Basement pt.1" (duet with Etta James), "Witch For A Night," "Go Go Power," "Good Timin'," and "Use What You Got."
Ace Records/Universal/Island did a fantastic job remastering the songs on this 2009 release, which all sound as though they were recorded yesterday, and the CD comes with a booklet with pictures of Sugar in action and wonderful liner notes by Mick Patrick that tells you all about Sugar, her career and her life.
GO GO POWER...CD is like finding a needle-in-a-haystack. Who knew there was such wonders to discover in music? If you like blues mixed with rock then I highly recommend this CD. And to see some vintage performances of Sugar Pie DeSanto go to YouTube.
Excellent collection of tracks from the early sixties by Miss Sugar Pie. This release is long overdue and we finally get these great songs in one place. Most of these tracks are tough R&B with a few that are more pop oriented but there are some real killers here. This woman had a genuine swagger to her - sort of the female Muddy Waters. If you like rockin' R&B from the 60's, you need this one in your CD player!
Of course, her duets with Etta James are here, but so much more. Every track has something to offer, most are just great, and the thorough booklet has some photos that are worth the price of admission by themselves. Reading about her "scissor lock" maneuver and then seeing the visual evidence is not to be missed!
Put on your Soulful Dress and party Down in the Basement!
