Denise LaSalle ''Here I Am Again''

Denise LaSalle first came onto the scene on Chess Records in 1967 with her first single, "A Love Reputation." Her musical styles have ranged from, Blues, R&B, Soul & Pop, but she has earned herself a tag as The Queen of the Blues.
"Trapped By A Thing Called Love" was a 1971 US #1 R&B, Soul smash hit single, which sold over a million copies. "Now Run And Tell That" and "Man Sized Job" followed into the top 5 of the US R&B chart in the early 70's. Her Unwrapped' album remains a 1979 classic & features a live medley of "Make Me Yours" "Trapped By A Thing Called Love" and "Precious Precious." In 1980, she had some Disco, Club success with the sought after "I'm So Hot," followed by "Come To Bed" (written-By Phillip Mitchell), "Lady in the Street" in 1983 and "Right Place, Right Time," her timeless duet with Latimore in 1984. Unfortunately, she is best known in the UK & other parts of the world for her #6 UK hit cover version of Rockin' Sidney's, "My Toot Toot."
"Here I Am Again" was released in 1975 & mainly overlooked at the time, even with it's Barry White feel.
