ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Linda Jones “The Empress of Soul” soulful greatness lives on with her never before heard live version of her 1972 top 20 hit “Your Precious Love” live in New York produced and remixed by Grammy nominated artist Terry Jones (Linda’s daughter) and Helen Bruner.
Linda performed “Your Precious Love” in her concerts long before she would record it. She wrote the talking intro and breakdown to her interpretation of the Jerry Butler penned song "For Your Precious Love.” She re-titled it “Your Precious Love” which pulled the listener in from the very first syllable “into each life a little rain must fall.” Terry and Helen listened to a ton of Linda’s live performance tapes and selected this performance which demonstrates Linda’s incredible passion to please her audience. After many studio hours of mixing, the final product captures the essence of Linda’s undeniable soulfulness!
In the movie "Ali", starring Will Smith, a singer portraying Linda Jones in a nightclub sings Linda's version of “Your Precious Love.” This version is what Mohammad Ali heard Linda perform that night at a club in Chicago when he met his wife.

Although her career was ended prematurely, Linda remains a vital influence in today’s music and is sampled by hip hop artist, most recently sampled by Drake & Lil Wayne. Even hip hop understands the magnitude of The Empress of Soul” Linda Jones.

You can also check out on CD Baby Linda Jones cd "Soul Talkin." Linda received a 2009 Grammy nomination posthumously for "Baby I Know" off Soul Talkin.
