- Bonnie White - Blackberries
Came across this obscure early 70s singer-songwriter LP in a charity shop a few weeks ago, and thought I’d take a chance on it. It’s a mixed bag musically, but Bonnie has a fine soulful voice and the record does contain a few fine songs - including this one, a lost treasure from the 60s civil rights song movement.
“The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice,
but the berries grew bitter from too much abuse…”
The album seems obscure in the extreme and I could find no reference to any further musical endeavors by Ms White. Not sure what became of here but I’d love to know.
