Bettye Lavette – Let Me Down Easy

Betty LaVette (born Betty Haskins, in Michigan of course) released this single in 1965…..what a year that was. While many of us were fixating on the British invasion, this song proved to be what some call one of the greatest soul songs in the history of the world.  Better than any cut by Al Green, Otis Redding or Marvin Gaye? Well it is good.
