This month’s selection was the self-titled album by Betty Davis.

You’ll get a little intro from one of the Vinyl Me, Please co-founders. These are more of a poetic verse than anything else.

Each Vinyl Me, Please monthly shipment comes with an LP-sized piece of artwork and a cocktail recipe. These are a few fun little extras when you’re unboxing and listening!

Betty Davis Betty Davis

July’s selection takes us back to 1973 on a funk journey with Betty Davis.

This exclusive release is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and remastered from the original master tapes. The exclusive edition keeps a lot of the same vibe as the original LP – with a few extra touches, making it a little more special – it is a special edition, after all.

This is the first time I’ve seen this, but it comes with a little coloring sheet for adult coloring book fans out there!

It comes with a booklet that dives into details about her career and personal life – a nice touch for a revisited artist and album.

The gatefold has the liner notes of the album to follow along with.

The pressing itself is gorgeous – I love the color choice.

The album, unsurprisingly, is fantastic. It storms through some major funk and soul from front to back. I love her voice, too – there’s a commanding force to it on every track – she has that perfect traditional tone mixed with a gravelly tone at the perfect time, which probably led to her being an influence across so many genres.

Verdict: I tend to always enjoy Vinyl Me, Please – whether I know the artist or not – so I was really thrilled with the reissue of this album! I wasn’t too familiar with Betty Davis, but it was one of those albums that I’ve felt that I’ve heard from the past and from current artists’ style – and I think that speaks towards how influential it has been.

This looks so good, I’m a little jealous. FYI there’s a VNYL deal on Gilt City going on now in case you guys didn’t know. $25 for one month, $45 for 2, and $65 for 3.

Thanks! Posted!

I love this box! My husband is a jazz musician and we are looking to build our collection, so I love the miles Davis connection here. Last month’s review had me relistening to Fiona Apple’s Tidal and loving it! This might be the subscription for me, if I can ever pull the trigger! Great review, would love if you included your favorite track for future reviews!

Eric Cadman

Will do! Btw – if you order before the 15th, you’ll start with this shipment, so you can still get this album!

Thanks for the heads up! Also, for the love of all things Holy, keep Experience Vinyl in mind the review. The top 10 list and essays the curators do blew my mind!
