Carleen Anderson - Mama Said 1994

Carleen Anderson is the UK's adopted soul sister. Born in the USA, the daughter of Vicki Anderson and stepdaughter of Bobby Byrd was most well known as the lead singer in the Young Disciples before setting off on her own solo career.

Mama Said was her first solo hit single but this release came after the Ian Green produced album True Spirit was released. If you haven't heard the album, it's essential soul. On this CD single You've Got To Earn It, is a live recording of Carleen singing with Pop Staples & the Memphis Rhythm Section , Who Was That Masked Man features Paul Weller (Jam, Style Council) while the demo recording of If You Knew is not on any of her albums.

  1. Previously released as an numbered limited EP.
    What a voice.

    Thanks again !!!!

  2. I do have the Dusky Sapho EP somewhere but the album True Spirit made it redundant. This of course, has the bonus tracks.

    Good to hear you're enjoying it, makes me feel like I'm getting somewhere. ;-)
