Live On In Me (K&R KRS 1051) 1979








Bea Verdi - Live On In Me







Liner notes from this obscurity on Ray Repp’s custom label state that this lady spent six and a half years writing music for Motown. She’s also a church organist and choir director. Piano is her instrument of choice on this recording where her soft soulful vocals are joined by guitar, bass and drums for a pure-and—simple session of easy-going low— key rhythm and blues with touches of pop, gospel and jazz. The handful of ballads with just her and piano didn’t cut it for me, but amongst the rest are some real gems: ‘The Willow’ with its smoky nightclub veneer, the subdued funkiness of ‘Family Of Love’, the infectious pop optimism of the boogie-tinged ‘The Sun Is Finally Shinin’ Down’. Twelve songs in all, produced by the Reppmeister himself.  (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
