Laura Palmer 

The best part of the this album is that Charity looks like one Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks, non? This beer goggled photo was the best part of the album. Though she wrote three songs on it.. but it’s still a sad “Grease-like” 1974 record. Once her cover of Dancing in the Street started.. I jumped to lift the needle off the record. Side B didn’t even get a listen. Sorry folks if you are a die hard Charity Brown fan, this vinyl is another rethrift.  You be the judge.. am I wrong to dislike one of “my people” (a fellow Canadian)???

Her Motown-flavoured brand of white soul was produced by Harry Hinde and was strong enough to secure her a contract with A&M Records. It was at this time she changed her stage name to Charity Brown. Her two original studio albums with A&M produced four top ten hits in Canada, including the #5 hit “Take Me in Your Arms (Rock Me a Little While)“.
