First official re-release mastered from the original tapes. Betty Davis was riding high in the 70's. A new record label, a series of high profile relationships, and intensely sexualized live performances made her a rising star. It seemed like everything was aligned to take the music world by storm. So Betty and band got back into the studio where she would act as writer, producer, and performer, creating what she thought would be her definitive release. What emerged was the unapologetically uncompromising, self-referential 1975 album Nasty Gal. Ahead of its time, Nasty Gal shows betty digging deeper into her musical and cultural expression than ever before, and delivers from every angle. This is Hendrix and Sly Stone inspired funk-rock at its finest. From the title track's mutant groove and grunt to her onetime husband and jazz legend Miles Davis co-written ballad (You and I), this lady will tear your heart out!.
