Sun Records 70th Anniversary 180g Vinyl LP!

Looking back on the career of a living legend, Let Me Down Easy: Bettye LaVette in Memphis captures the recordings she made in the 1960s for Silver Fox Records, part of the Sun Records family celebrating 70 years. Blending her northern R&B with southern soul, this remastered retrospective includes tracks like the rocking "He Made a Woman Out of Me", her explosive cover of "Piece of My Heart", and "Let Me Down Easy", which was recently featured by the electronic duo ODESZA.

Hailed by the New York Times as "one of the great soul interpreters of her generation," Bettye LaVette is a vocalist who can take any type of song and make it completely her own. Bettye is one of very few of her contemporaries who were recording during the birth of soul music in the 1960s and is still creating vital recordings today. To quote the late, great George Jones: "Bettye is truly a 'singer's singer.'"
