(Ace Records) 22 Tracks - 1967-1978 - Aretha Franklin erzielte 1968 mit The House That Jack Built einen Riesenerfolg. Thelma Jones aus Harlem nahm den Song zuerst auf. Und sie hat es besser gemacht. Es war ein Gütesiegel, als Aretha Sie bedeckte; erleben Sie ihre Versionen von Ray Charles, Baby Washington, Johnny Ace, Dionne Warwick und Ben E. King Songs. Thelma war in bester Gesellschaft. Ihre Recording-Karriere kam in zwei Ausbrüchen: zehn Tracks für Barry Records in den Jahren 1966 bis 1968 und ein Dutzend für Columbia ein Jahrzehnt später. Die oft funkigen Barry-Seiten sind von Gospel-Eifer durchdrungen (Thelma begann ihre Gesangskarriere in der Kirche, natch), während die Columbia-Decks glänzend, kommerziell und gelegentlich (auf eine gute Art und Weise) disco-fied sind. Doch die beiden Phasen stehen auf dieser CD dank des gemeinsamen Nenners von Thelma´s fabelhaftem Gesang sehr glücklich nebeneinander. Ihre erste Barry-Single, Never Leave Me, erreichte Anfang 1967 die R&B Top 50 und veranlasste Jerry Wexler von Atlantic Records, in den Druck zu gehen und zu sagen, wie sehr er sie liebte. (Empfehlungen haben selten mehr Gewicht als das.) Der Song erinnert leicht an Maxine Browns All In My Mind, während Thelma nicht anders klingt als solche Gospel-to-Soul-Crossover-Beispiele wie Sylvia Shemwell of the Sweet Inspirations oder Mitty Collier. (Wer erwähnte gewichtige Empfehlungen?) Das Haus, das Jack baute, war ihre vierte 45. Vielleicht war es Jerry Wexler, der Aretha in den Song verwandelte, oder vielleicht war es Cissy Houston, die die Backing-Sänger bei Thelma´s Version und ebenso bei der Queen Of Soul führte. Einige von Thelma´s schnellen Seiten werden von Funk-Liebhabern verehrt, andere von nordischen Soul-Fans, aber ihre Balladen waren großartig. Mit einem Treffer in der Tasche warf Barry Records für ihren Nachfolger, die massiv produzierte Gotta Find A Way, die sie von einem kompletten Symphonieorchester unterstützt fand, ganz zu schweigen von einem Schlagzeuger auf Steroiden. Fans von Garnet Mimms, Lorraine Ellison und geheiligter Seele im Allgemeinen werden es auffressen. Nach einer achtjährigen Pause erschien Thelma 1976 wieder mit Salty Tears, einer wunderschönen Ballade des Crack-Songwriting-Teams von Teddy Randazzo und Victoria Pike. Elf Jahre nach ihrem ersten Hit bürstete Thelma die R&B-Charts ein zweites und letztes Mal mit einem Revival von The Miracles´ I Second That Emotion. Columbia veröffentlichte im selben Jahr ihr gleichnamiges Album. Seitdem nichts mehr. Was für eine Schande. Diese CD enthält Thelma´s komplette Aufnahmen (bis auf eine obskure Gospel-Single, die sie als Kind gemacht hat und einige Titel, die in den späten 60ern für Atlantic bei Muscle Shoals aufgenommen wurden - ja, Wexler mochte sie so sehr, dass er sie unter Vertrag nahm). Mit einem Katalog, der Doris Duke, Irma Thomas, Carolyn Franklin, Loleatta Holloway, Maxine Brown, Bettye Swann, Jean Wells und Baby Washington umfasst, sammelt das Label Kent nach und nach eine beeindruckende Liste von Soul-Heldinnen. Thelma Jones ist wieder in bester Gesellschaft. Sie verdient es.

You´ve always been crazy, says Louise to Thelma, shortly after she locks a police officer in the trunk of his car. ´´This is just the first chance you´ve had to express yourself.´´ In 1991, Thelma & Louise, the story of two outlaw women on the run from their disenchanted lives, was a revelation. Suddenly, a film in which women were, in every sense, behind the wheel. It turned the tables on Hollywood, instantly becoming a classic, and continues to electrify audiences as a cultural statement of defiance. But if the film´s place in history now seems certain, at the time its creation was a long shot. Only through sheer hard work and more than a little good luck did the script end up in the hands of the brilliant English filmmaker Ridley Scott, who saw its huge potential. With Scott onboard, a team willing to challenge the odds came together - including the stars Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon and a fresh-faced up-and-coming actor named Brad Pitt, as well as legends like actor Harvey Keitel, composer Hans Zimmer, and old-school studio chief Alan Ladd Jr. - to create one of the most controversial movies of all time. But before icons like Davis and Sarandon got involved, Thelma & Louise was just an idea in the head of Callie Khouri, a 30-year-old music video production manager who was fed up with working behind the scenes on sleazy sets. At four a.m. one night, sitting in her car outside the ramshackle bungalow in Santa Monica that she shared with two friends, she had a vision: two women on a crime spree, fleeing their dull and tedious lives - lives like hers - in search of a freedom they had never before been able to realize. But in the late 1980s, Hollywood was dominated by men, both on the screen and behind the scenes. The likelihood of a script by an unheard-of screenwriter starring two women in lead roles actually getting made was remote. But Khouri had one thing going for her - she was so inexperienced she didn´t really know she wo 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirsten Potter.

Callie Khouri´s seminal, Oscar-winning screenplay for Thelma & Louise, released in 1991, gave voice to a profound cultural moment and became one of the most provocative cinematic landmarks of the ´90s. It was the Kentucky native´s first attempt at a screenplay. In this enlightening interview, Khouri describes how spending years doing music-video production in the ´80s inspired her not only to write, but to write with a purpose. A passionate activist with a resume that includes Something to Talk About and her adaptation of Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, which she also directed, Khouri discusses in detail the pressure of living up to such early acclaim, what it´s like to be a woman in the industry, and how the state of the world around you fuels and shapes your creative mindset.Your Host: Producer Mike De Luca is responsible for some of the most groundbreaking films of the last 15 years. After enrolling in New York University´s film studies program at 17, De Luca dropped out four credits shy of graduation to take an unpaid internship at New Line Cinema. He advanced quickly there under the tutelage of founder Robert Shaye and eventually became president of production. The Mask (1994), Se7en (1995), Boogie Nights (1997), Dark City (1998), Pleasantville (1998), and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) were all released under his supervision. In 2003, De Luca left New Line to become president of production at DreamWorks. After a brief tenure there, he left and signed a deal with Sony Pictures, where he produced Zathura (2005) and Ghost Rider (2006). A writer as well, De Luca wrote the screenplays for Freddy´s Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) and In the Mouth of Madness (1994). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike DeLuca.
