  Linda Jones

A talent whose time on Earth was cut much too short, Linda Jones had a wild, deeply passionate style of singing that set her apart from her contemporaries.  Perhaps only Patti Labelle at her most intense can compare to Jones.  "Hypnotized" was a toned-down performance that  hit in the late 1960s but it is the later work for Turbo that people search for.  "That's When I'll Stop Loving You," "Things I've Been Going Through," and "Not On the Outside" are some of the hardest-sung records you'll ever hear and I can only imagine how she did them in concert.   She died after a show at the Apollo of diabetes in 1972.

Linda Jones' Deepest Grooves

Your Precious Love (Turbo, 1973)

Hypnotized: Golden Classics (Collectables, 1990s)

Never Mind The Quality (Sequel)
A live performance that was probably a bootleg that got cleaned up for release, this is about the only way you'll get to hear Jones in her element.
