Millie Jackson: Caught Up (Spring SPR 6703)
Paul Gambaccini, Rolling Stone, 10 April 1975
THIS REMARKABLE exposition of a lover's triangle told from the perspectives of wife and adulteress is the high point of Millie Jackson's career to date. On one side the other woman puts forward her point of view in a biting talkathon appropriately titled 'The Rap'. A passionate version of 'If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want to Be Right' makes it clear that although New Year's Eve is lonely, "J-1" is the sweetest day of the year for the woman who gets her lover back after the family holidays.
