Fontella Bass Passes On At 72 RIP

                                                Fontella Bass
                                July 3, 1940 – December 26, 2012

 St. Louis' Queen of Soul


LA Times Piece 

NY Times Piece

St. Louis Post Dispatch 


Her album "Free" is an underground Masterpiece.

Singles include: Leave It In the Hands of LoveLucky In Love, Everyday I Have To Cry, I'm Leaving The Choice To You, The Soul of a Man, Gee Whiz, Hold On This Time, Don't Mess Up A Good Thing, & Talking About Freedom.

Her gospel work is pretty good too. A class act all the way around. I highlighted her here in July 2012.
