to celebrate the release of the new martha high & speedometer album, soul overdue, andy from speedometer has put together a selection of tracks related to (and the inspiration for) the new album. martha high’s impeccable soul credentials are beyond question.
she was a member of the jewels, who in the mid 60s were part of the james brown revue, and also released two 45s produced by james brown. although the jewels eventually disbanded, martha continued to be a part of the live james brown show for the next 30 years!
she also recorded a solo album for salsoul records in 1979, also produced by the soul brother number 1.
martha high – soul overdue is available now on vinyl and digital download directly from
