Steven R Rosen, Cincinnati CityBeat, 19 October 2011
BETTYE LAVETTE'S late-career success story is one of the music business' most remarkable. The powerful 65-year-old R&B singer/stylist first recorded in 1962 — 'My Man — He's a Lovin' Man' for Atlantic Records, home in that era of such other classic Soul vocalists as Ben E. King, Solomon Burke, the Drifters, Percy Sledge and Aretha Franklin.
