B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 29 DEC. 2012

Great R&B/Soul/Gospel vocalist and composer, Fontella Bass will be sadly missed. Though best known for her 1965 hit, "I Surrender," a song that she battled over years for proper co-songwriting credit, Bass also recorded a string of amazing soul tracks such as "I Can't Rest" ('66) and "Don't Jump" (with Bobby McClure in '66), before bowing out of the soul industry in the late '60s. Her power came from her voice (obviously) and her finesse. Ms. Bass, who died on Dec. 26th, was only 72 years old.
