Irma Thomas: Full Time Woman - The Lost Cotillion Album (LP, colored Vinyl, Ltd.)

(Real Gone Music) 15 tracks, colored vinyl in light blue, limited edition

13 early 70's Songs never before on linyl from the soul Queen of New Orleans

Soul Queen of New Orleans Irma Thomas had a string of national successes in the U.S. in the mid-60s with classics such as Wish Someone Would Care, Anyone Who Knows What Love Is (Will Understand) and the original version of Time Is on My Side (later a big hit for the Rolling Stones), recorded for Imperial Records.
After a short time with Chess Records, Irma recorded for Canyon Records before being signed to Atlantic Records by the label's famous manager, Jerry Wexler. A first session in 1971 yielded a single, Full Time Woman (produced by noted New Orleans music legend Wardell Quezergue), which failed to chart but was described by Wexler in a 2007 interview as one of his all-time favorite recordings.

Undaunted, Atlantic arranged additional sessions for Irma in Detroit, Miami and Philadelphia throughout 1972 - but none of the material was released until a 2014 CD collection. Now, some 50 years after the original recordings, Full Time Woman: The Lost Cotillion Album brings all of Irma's recordings for Atlantic (under her Cotillion imprint) to LP for the first time! Irma pushes songs like the standard "Time After Time, Bobbie Gentry's 1969 hit Fancy and Billy Walker's country hit Tell Me Again, alongside the funky She's Taken My Part (the flip side of Full Time Woman), and R & B-influenced original material, including highlights Waiting For Someone, Our Love Don't Come Easy and two early '70s Philly soul tunes, No Name and Adam And Eve.

It goes without saying that this release is a great addition to the Irma Thomas discography!

Irma Thomas

Don’t Mess With My Man

 

This was the first the world heard of soul chanteuse Irma Thomas, and the song has become so popular that any female singer in any bar is still guaranteed a good response from it. Born Irma Lee in Pontachoula, Louisiana on February 18, 1941, she moved with her family to New Orleans three years later. “We lived in a rooming house near the Bell Motel on Melpomene Street,”she told Jeff Hannusch. “The lounge in the motel had a jukebox, and I’d sneak off and listen to it every chance I got.”Pregnant at 14, she married the father of her child, and then married Andrew Thomas, with whom she had two more kids.

Leaving the children with her mother, Irma began singing with Tommy Ridgely at the Pimlico Club. Ridgely introduced her to Joe Ruffino, owner of the Ric and Ron labels, and Irma auditioned for Ruffino in the back of his distributorship. Dorothy Labostrie, whom we last encountered cleaning up Little Richard’s Tutti Frutti,had written Don’t Mess With My Man. “That was a kind of bold song,”she said, “especially for 1959. I was looking for a young girl with a lot of spirit to sing it. Irma came along, and she had the voice.”Ruffino wanted to get it recorded right away. “The next day, we went to the studio,”Thomas told Hannusch. “I didn’t have enough sense to be scared.”Ruffino hired Eddie Bo as arranger, and cut the session at Cosimo Matassa’s studio. According to Labostrie, backing was provided by Edgar Blanchard’s Gondoliers.

Bo’s arrangement called for a brisk shuffle, and Irma sounds older than her years. The song became a local breakout and then a nationwide hit. Irma hit the road in a beat-up Mercury stationwagon. Even then, she found that the song evoked a potent response. It peaked at a rather lowly #22 on the R&B charts, but sold much better than that placing suggests. It also heralded a long, ongoing career.
