Summary "From her early R&B classics to bold and bawdy demands for satisfaction, Denise LaSalle updated the classic blueswoman's stance of powerful independence while her earthy lyrics about relationships connected with generations of female fans. Offstage, she enjoyed ongoing success as a record label owner, entrepreneur, and genre-crossing songwriter."--Back cover.
