Tolliver, Kim

Come And Get Me I'm Ready
Sealed 1973 Original. Small Cut Corner. “Kim Tolliver Is An Obscure Name On The Rosters Of Soul Greats, But She Shouldn't Be. ..(This Is) A Stellar Collection Of Deep Soul Tracks With A Bent Toward Midtempo Searing Ballads. Tolliver And Husband Fred Briggs Wrote The Lion's Share Of The Album. There Isn't A Weak Moment Here. The Songs Are Sophisticated And Rooted In The Memphis Tradition, With Nods To The Sounds Of Cleveland And Detroit. But The Melodies Are As Complex As The Arrangements Are Back-To-Basics. Standout Cuts Include The Title Track, An Uptempo Soul Stomper With Big Horns, Backing Vocals, And Tolliver In A Fierce Growl. But The Real Measure Of A Great Soul Singer Is The Way She Or He Treats A Ballad. And Kim Tolliver Was Second To None In This Department, As Evidenced By "The Way He Used To," The Opening Wronged-Woman Cheating Ballad "The Other Side Of Town," The Beautiful "She Don't Know You (Like I Do)," And The Killer Reading Of Willie Hale's Gwen Mccrae Hit, "I'm Losing The Feeling." This Album Cannot Be Recommended Highly Enough.” Thom Jurek, AMG.
