Important Notice - please read before shopping:

Due to the high rate-increase that went into effect by the USPS in January 2013, we realise that the cost of shipping one CD overseas is exhorbitant. We are therefore offering a discounted rate to those who choose to buy 2 CDs or more. Pick your 2 CDs and we will refund the shipping for the second CD.

 

 

Personally Signed and Autographed CDs from Bettye LaVette

 

"Autographs - some people give 'em, some people collect 'em, and some people refuse to give 'em... Bettye LaVette: I purchased this one from her website. She managed to use one of those liquid silver pens without smearing." - David Kidney

Thankful N’ Thoughtful: CD or Double LP - with CD enclosed

“Thankful N’ Thoughtful” is Bettye LaVette's 4th album of an 8-year collaboration with ANTI- Records - the label who helped change her from a cult figure back to mainstream and re-introduced her talent to a world audience hungry for authentic R&B and soul. It begs the question, "Why didn't it happen earlier?" But it matters not now and, as Pete Townshend said, "Now she is here, an extraordinary discovery in a blues voice, we must hang on to her tightly”. Bettye, who's talent has only deepened in those years, is Thankful N’ Thoughtful - as are the fans who followed her during the lean years in the belief that one day she would get the recognition she deserved.
