Summary "For more than three decades -- from the time she was 18 years old -- soul singer extraordinaire Martha High was in the employ, in the ear and in the heart of the Godfather of Soul James Brown. She knew his performance standards, his rules, his wives, his children, the exact way his hair had to be set and often what the heck he was saying when everyone else was clueless. In this funny, honest and touching memoir, she tells of her life and her life in music -- before, during and since her years singing with James Brown. Martha's story takes readers from her beginnings with The Jewels, helped by Bo Diddley in Washington, DC, all the way through to her current career singing all over the world with former James Brown colleague Maceo Parker, and as a solo performing and recording artist. In her own unique style, Martha tells never before-told stories from behind the scenes, about tragic losses, the funny side of show business and the very special relationship she shared with James Brown." --Publisher's description.
