Boomkat Product Review:
It's only fitting for an album with the title They Say I'm Different to feature a woman dressed in a glam rock leotard propping herself up with what appears to be giant chopsticks. Flamboyant as ever, Betty Davis' 1974 sophomore release kicks off with 'Shoo-B-Doop and Cop Him', as famously sampled by Ice Cube. It's underpinned by a tight groove with some customarily exhubert, sexually charged vocals. By the time 'He Was A Big Freak' comes around Davis is fully warmed up with a pretty nuts, screeching delivery - it's all pretty remarkable stuff. This beautifully packaged, remastered reissue is finished off with four bonus cuts, all previously unreleased rough mixes of final album tracks. Superb.
