Legendary 70s R&B diva Betty Davis is currently in the midst of a long-overdue resurgence, and with good reason. The charismatic funk/soul iconoclast's vintage work retains a timeless blend of sex and substance that establishes Davis as both a musical visionary and a worldclass badass. The current resurgence of interest in Davis' classic work makes Sundazed Music's vinyl release of Is It Love or Desire a timely one indeed. Recorded in 1976, following the artist's landmark albums Betty Davis, They Say I'm Different and Nasty Gal, Is It Love or Desire was unexpectedly shelved. The artist retreated from the spotlight soon after, and Is It Love or Desire remained unheard by the public for more than three decades. It has never been released or even bootlegged until now. Finally available to Davis' still growing fan base, Is It Love or Desire is a revelation. Recorded at Louisiana's remote Studio in the Country with Davis' skintight band Funk House, the ten-song album contains some of the most powerful and personal music of the artist's career, with such titles as It's So Good, Whorey Angel and Crashin' From Passion´┐Ż ranking with Davis' most memorable work. This first-ever vinyl edition of Is It Love or Desire maintains Sundazed's usual exacting quality standards. Mastered from the original analog tapes, the album is pressed on high quality, high-definition 180 gram vinyl, and features new cover art and previously unseen
