Sugar Pie DeSanto: Slip In Mules
An awesome song here from the not-talked-about-nearly-enough Sugar Pie DeSanto. The best line? "And it ain't the back that's cut too low"...risque business!
DeSanto was born Umpeylia Balinton in Brooklyn, New York in 1935, although moved to San Francisco at a young age, and it is the Bay Area with which she is most associated. She is possibly best known for her collaborations with Etta James, although had had hit singles in her own right before this - the first being I Want To Know in 1960. The song above was released in 1964, and it's a corker!
