Linda Jones was a dynamic, sorely neglected late-’60s and early-’70s soul vocalist. There was no mild reaction to Jones’ theatrical style; you were either amazed or appalled. She didn’t deliver lyrics, she smashed and screamed them. This collection covers her bombastic hits, including the classic title track, “I’ll Be Sweeter Tomorrrow,” “For Your Precious Love” and several others. Any vocalist picked by Gladys Knight and Patti Labelle as one of their favorites merits closer examination. Unfortunately, her premature death in the early-’70s prevented Jones from gaining much exposure, as did the fact that she recorded for a host of small independents.
