Carla Thomas, the daughter of Memphis Legend Rufus Thomas, remains a "southern soul sweetheart" of iconic stature.
Next week, Carla Thomas' The Queen Alone will be reissued (on Stax) in what's being called a deluxe expanded edition.
Carla had a nice run on Stax, with "Gee Whiz," "B-a-b-y," "Let Me Be Good To You," and "Tramp" (a duet with Otis Redding).
The 11 songs on the original 1969 album will be complemented by five bonus tracks that were omitted from the original vinyl release:
- "Me and My Clock"
- "Same Thing"
- "Your Love Indeed (Alternate Take)"
- "I Want To Know (Take 2)"
- "I Wonder About Love"
The Queen Alone will be reissued on the reactivated Stax Records through Concord Music Group as part of the label's yearlong series of 50th Anniversary events.
