Long overdue, first ever anthology of southern soul legend Wendy Rene, whose classic, organ-driven “After Laughter (Comes Tears)” has been covered or sampled by everyone from Wu Tang Clan (“Tearz”, from 36 Chambers) to Alicia Keys (“Where Do We Go From Here”).

Includes never-before-heard greasy jams like “I Wish I Were That Girl” and “He Hasn’t Failed Me Yet.”

Features book-deep liner notes with interviews and rare photos provided by Wendy Rene herself.
