Texas-born Barbara Lynn was a soul diva with a difference: not only was she a gifted vocalist, she was a solid guitarist as well, and added tough, wiry six-string work to her biggest hits. While Lynn scored most of her chart hits while she was signed to Jamie Records in the mid-'60s, she cut some of her best material after inking a new deal with Atlantic Records in 1967, and made her way onto the R&B charts with the songs "This Is the Thanks I Get" and "(Until Then) I'll Suffer." The Complete Atlantic Recordings brings together all 24 sides Lynn recorded for Atlantic between 1967 and 1972, as well as a previously unreleased version of the Box Tops' "Soul Deep." Including material produced by the great songwriter and session pianist Spooner Oldham and the celebrated "Crazy Cajun" Huey P. Meaux, The Complete Atlantic Recordings captures Barbara Lynn in inspired form, and is recommended listening for any and all fans of vintage Southern soul. ~ Mark Deming
