More Info:

In the spring of 1977, Millie Jackson was in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, laying down tracks for what became "Feelin' Bitchy" with co-producer Brad Shapiro. Released in August 1977, the album reached #4 and #34 in America's Billboard's R&B and Hot 100, going gold with over 500,000 copies sold. Jackson's cover of 'If You're Not Back In Love By Monday' - already a hit for Merle Haggard in March 1977 - also reached #5 R&B and #43 in the Hot 100 in August. Although the album did not chart in the UK, "Feelin' Bitchy" sold strongly to a dedicated fanbase who had voted her the #1 female singer in the Blues & Soul magazine annual poll. Jackson also performed much of the material on her sold-out UK dates in early 1978. "Feelin' Bitchy" was not only a commercial success, cementing Jackson's no-nonsense reputation, but is now considered an all-time classic. Her rap on Benny Latimore's 'All The Way Lover' stretched the original out like chewing gum to 10 minutes. "'Back In Love By Monday' is a great song an' that," she told Black Echoes, "but it didn't sell the album. 'All The Way Lover' sold the album." Indeed it did, but other tracks like 'A Little Taste Of Outside Love' 'Lovin' Your Good Thing Away', 'Cheatin' Is' and 'Feelin' Like A Woman' show that while Jackson's tongue - front and centre on the LP cover - was always ready to hand out a lashing, it also helped her sing beautifully. Ace are delighted to reissue "Feelin' Bitchy' on vinyl and Millie Jackson spoke to Ian Shirley about the recording of the album. This interview runs on an inner sleeve along with classic photographs of Jackson from this period.
