Lonely girl - DELTA 0003

Emma Atkins

Like the Jo Jo Coleman on the same label, this 45 by Emma Atkins never made it out of rural Louisiana. But that doesn't stop us appreciating a fine vocalist on a strong southern soul tune. There's some lovely bluesy guitar flourishes throughout this tale of woe, and a wailing tenor sax, both of which make a fine backdrop to Ms Atkins as she half-talks and half-sings her own lyric on Lonely Girl. As with the Jo Jo 45 production values and the musicianship are of a high order for such a tiny outfit as Delta must have been.
