Millie Jackson: Hammersmith Odeon, London
Richard Williams, The Times, 1 February 1978

Utterly eschewing the submissiveness of a Diana Ross or the downtrodden despair of an Aretha Franklin, Millie Jackson is possibly the first since Ma Rainey and the early classic blues singers to present herself as a rapacious sexual conqueror.
