Lynn White - Am I too Much Woman For You

Lynn White was born on the 6th of August, 1953 in Mobile, Alabama. Began singing professionally in the late 1970's, with various 45s collected on the album 'Am I Too Much Woman for You' in 1981. In 1982, she recorded the single 'I Don't Ever Want to See Your Face Again' for the Sho Me label. The single was picked up by Willie Mitchell (best known for his work with Al Green), who reissued it on his Waylo Records and signed White to the label, resulting in a string of albums in the 80s. The following decade Lynn formed her own label, Chelsea, where she released 'The New Me' in 1990.'Home Girl' followed in 1991, and two years later Lynn returned with 'Cheatin'. Two more 90s LPs appeared before White seemingly disappeared from the Soul music scene.

Wonderful album, certainly her most bluesy. I bought this LP at Darby's Record Store in Mobile in the early 80's. I was only looking for blues records that were locally produced (and at that time unavailable anywhere else and sometimes completely unknown outside their area) and Ms White who was just selling the records from the counter told me she had done several singles and an LP for her boss, Ike Darby! After that, she became quite a star in the southern chitlin' circuit. I had not heard about her for some years now... If anybody has news...

I asked Bobby Rush in July about Lynn and he told me that she is an active pastor in Mississippi.

Gerard if y-o-u don't know what's become of her, what hope have we of knowing. [grin]

Seriously, she recorded that CD with Bobby Rush in 1998 and then nothing...except two greatest hits compilations around 2000 or so.

Thank you very much to you Anonymous and MarcD. I was wondering why she quit the Soul blues circuit and where she was... She was a very hot Soul singer and on stage and as she said she could make "all the women jealous of her and all the men leaping in her hand"... I guess, as a minister of God, she keeps the same ability to bring all Souls to Jesus?
