Gee Whiz (Gatefold, 2LP Vinyl Set)

Artist: Carla Thomas
Format: 2LP
Bar-code: 5060403742216
Cat No: NOT2LP221


This collection gathers together the entire album that made up Gee Whiz in 1961 and the various singles Carla (and her father Rufus, in some instances) recorded either side of that release. As will be quite plainly heard, while Gee Whiz pursued several other musical paths, the singles were almost entirely R&B-based. And while Carla may have had to abdicate her throne of Queen of Soul to Aretha Franklin, she is more than worthy of her other moniker, the Queen of Memphis Soul.
