Laura Lee: Women's Love Rights (Hot Wax)
Dave Marsh, Creem, March 1972
LAURA MAY claim she's "startin' a new movement today" but to tell you the truth she's just following in the Holland Dozier Holland tradition of great female vocalists. I'd settle for that any day. The supposed topicality of her music at this point may be as much a drawback as an asset: one would hate to see someone with this much talent have the same difficulty (labeled as a novelty act) that people like Lou Reed have gone through.
