    Now you're talking. This is the quintessential question! A nurturing mother type or a hot head sex pot?

    I'm going with Alice.

    Picked up Universal Consciousness yesterday. Great stuff.

    note her spiritual side and her talent was off the hook. An incredible woman, and one to live by. She had a very interesting life from what I have read and seen. And to not be with another man, after her husband passed is very respectable.

    also this woman had an interesting and talent life as well. I like how she was a pimp with a sangria in her hand most of the time with some egyptian like gear. LOVE IT!


    Mississippi Goddam is the word.


    The name of this tune is Mississippi Goddam
    And I mean every word of it

    Alabama's gotten me so upset
    Tennessee made me lose my rest
    And everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

    Alabama's gotten me so upset
    Tennessee made me lose my rest
    And everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

    Can't you see it
    Can't you feel it
    It's all in the air
    I can't stand the pressure much longer
    Somebody say a prayer

    Alabama's gotten me so upset
    Tennessee made me lose my rest
    And everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

    This is a show tune
    But the show hasn't been written for it, yet

    Hound dogs on my trail
    School children sitting in jail
    Black cat cross my path
    I think every day's gonna be my last

    Lord have mercy on this land of mine
    We all gonna get it in due time
    I don't belong here
    I don't belong there
    I've even stopped believing in prayer

    Don't tell me
    I tell you
    Me and my people just about due
    I've been there so I know
    They keep on saying "Go slow!"

    But that's just the trouble
    "do it slow"
    Washing the windows
    "do it slow"
    Picking the cotton
    "do it slow"
    You're just plain rotten
    "do it slow"
    You're too damn lazy
    "do it slow"
    The thinking's crazy
    "do it slow"
    Where am I going
    What am I doing
    I don't know
    I don't know

    Just try to do your very best
    Stand up be counted with all the rest
    For everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

    I made you thought I was kiddin' didn't we

    Picket lines
    School boycotts
    They try to say it's a communist plot
    All I want is equality
    for my sister my brother my people and me

    Yes you lied to me all these years
    You told me to wash and clean my ears
    And talk real fine just like a lady
    And you'd stop calling me Sister Sadie

    Oh but this whole country is full of lies
    You're all gonna die and die like flies
    I don't trust you any more
    You keep on saying "Go slow!"
    "Go slow!"

    But that's just the trouble
    "do it slow"
    Desegregation
    "do it slow"
    Mass participation
    "do it slow"
    Reunification
    "do it slow"
    Do things gradually
    "do it slow"
    But bring more tragedy
    "do it slow"
    Why don't you see it
    Why don't you feel it
    I don't know
    I don't know

    You don't have to live next to me
    Just give me my equality
    Everybody knows about Mississippi
    Everybody knows about Alabama
    Everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

    That's it for now! see ya' later







    I love this woman.

    Loser. You can't handle what a Betty has in store for you.
    I'll take Betty any day, my downfall.

    No, I can't! And finding that out was a difficult and traumatic experience.

    meeting Alice Coltrane was one of the high points of my life. she was so gentle and genuine. she seemed completely unshakeable and at peace with EVERYTHING...i'm not a religious person but meeting her made me think maybe there's more to it than i've been thinking.


    not to mention she's one of the only jazz pianists of the past 40 years to not sound like a Cecil Taylor clone.


    RIP.

    Alice no contest.

    Never heard any Betty Davis that I was really feeling that much to be honest.

    But Betty would whoop her arse... no contest!

    I know I will probably get hated on for this, but I'm going with Betty! Funky and Slutty, two of my favorite things!!!

    also, Alice could lay down the fonk as well as anybody...listen to her version of "A Love Supreme".

    Wow--why stop there?

    A real lady would have immolated herself on his funeral pyre!

    I can imagine Alice Coltrane going bezerk and smacking Betty Davis with a Middle-Eastern instrument. Steel Cage Match style. Alice Coltrane wins!

    I picked up on that, it is more that you seem to have had tact surgically removed from your body

    This thread is comedy.

    Please. Betty D posed on an album cover w/ what is apparently armor and a spear of some sort. She's ready to handle weaponry.

    I'm a little surprised at the lack of support for BD. Her shit thumps. I'm taking Betty Davis.
