One of my all-time faves. I saw her on Friday in Washington, D.C. and she was stunning, energetic, and utterly outrageous and hilarious! Also got to meet her afterwards and she took an awesome pic with me and signed my CD of Back to the Shit! A class act!!!
Good Stuff ...... I enjoy the song and Millie enjoyed every dime this song brought her .....
This was a great song and still is .....
It's nice the purity of the vocals and instruments during that period of time ....
Listening to Millie is just what you need ....
It is interesting to know that Millie has never liked this song either of her early hit songs "My Man, A Sweet Man" and "Ask Me What You Want." She did not like it because the songs does not really say anything. I get it because this song does not tell a story. As Millie put it "Who goes around saying (taps on your shouldler) "My man is a sweet man. My man is a man is a kind man. My man is a fine man. And he is mine, mine, all mine?" Nobody!." I believe this song was recorded and issued as a single because of what is it is. Both songs are catchy Northern Soul songs meant for radio airplay to bring Millie more exposure and for it to become a hit! In both respects, "My Man, A Sweet Man" and "Ask Me What You Want" succeeded spectaularly
If you like caught up, check out this, Millie Jackson, Ann Peebles, Big Maybelle, Irma Thomas and others on this http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2007/01/dj_compilation_.html, you'll rediscover all the great, highly under rated female soul singers from all time!
@Sirwaz: the last.fm listening demographic is unfortunately heavily skewed aware from Millie's genre of music. e.g. when you look at say "funk" and RHCP have 110M plays and Prince has 10M, you know something's odd.
Millie Jackson is awesome.
Take a trip to the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s!
