Georgia-born soul singer Doris Curry began her career as Doris Whittingham after marrying Gus Whittingham of the Cadillacs and after backing Nina Simone on live album A Very Rare Evening, Swamp Dogg renamed her Doris Duke for her acclaimed solo debut, I'm A Loser.

The 1975 swansong, Woman, recorded for the British Contempo label and arranged by Gerry Shury, gets it contours from Ultrafunk's top-notch rhythm section and enhanced by the Armada Orchestra. A neglected classic that remained unjustly obscure, it has superb takes of 'Woman Of The Ghetto' and Mavis Staples—Pick Up The Pieces,' plus spirited originals
