Recycle It!: Yes Indeed! To Marsha Ambrosius

Monday, January 10, 2011

Let the tribute covers commence! Sy Smith and MdCL kicked off the Teena Marie appreciation with their re-imaging of "Lovergirl" and now Marsha Ambrosius dusted off Marie's "Yes Indeed!" for a crowd at a North London venue and--to no surprise--put a killin' on it. Soul Culture caught the performance and has shared it with everyone and I'm glad that they did, considering that this is a Teena Marie song you don't get to hear often, and that the song is the perfect canvas for a multi-texture toned voice like Ambrosius'. Overall, this suits her effortlessly. 

I said in the post about the 8 Best Teena Marie Albums (which I'm happy to state has been the most popular post on this blog in the last couple of months) that "Yes Indeed!" was one of my favorites off of Marie's 1981 album, It Must Be Magic and according to Ms. Ambrosius, it's her favorite as well. Another top notch tribute to add to the basket. Peek the Lady T original after the cut to get educated (or re-educated) on the original.
