Big Beat 108 – A Fool In Love/Why Not Tonight (1965)

Naomi Bradly Big Beat

Folkways FWRBF20 – Various Artists – Roots: Rhythm and Blues LP (A Fool In Love)

A local singer out of Greenville Mississippi, Naomi Bradley (or Bradly) seems to have only cut this one 45.  Her version of the Ike & Tina hit “A Fool In Love” was something of a local hit in the South & she was listed to appear on The Beat TV show out of Nashville on the strength of this record.  Unfortunately her footage has been lost & does not appear on the Bear Family reissues of The Beat.  The flip “Why Not Tonight” is a beautiful slice of Deep Soul written by Hines.
