Betty Padgett - Betty Padgett
LP - gatefold sleeve
Excellent undiscovered funky soul gem from Florida, recorded in 1975.
Betty Padgett was born in Newport, New Jersey and her family moved to Florida when she was in the 6th grade. She sang in her church choir and began to take performing seriously after graduating from high school. A 12" disco single of Sugar Daddy was pressed up in support of the LP and it created quite a buzz. While Padgett never quite topped the heights of Sugar Daddy, she boasts a great musical resume and continues to perform and record. She has performed and shared the stage with Little Beaver, Gwen & George McCrae, K.C. & The Sunshine Band, Latimore, Jimmy Bo Horne, Jackie Moore, Joe Tex, Denise LaSalle, The Impressions, Bobby Bland, Joe Simon and ZZ Hill.
