Anyone known as the ‘Soul Queen’ is worth a listen. Anyone known as the ‘Soul Queen of New Orleans’ is worth hours of attention – so it follows that Irma Thomas is worth all the time in the world.
Irma’s voice, coupled with Norman Reade’s (Read: Jerry Ragovoy’s) lyrical genius, brilliantly shed new light on a song most associate with the Rolling Stones.
It’s remarkably similar to the Stones’ version, but Irma’s voice makes it different, special, real and royal.
