Review:
Sharon Cash is best known for replacing Edna Wright in the 1976/77 edition of female soul group Honey Cone. With this new line-up fronted by Cash, they released the single ‘Somebody’s Always Messing Up a Good Thing’, backed by ‘The Truth Will Come Out’. But Sharon Cash also recorded a couple of albums as a solo artist in the early-70s. The first one, which I am posting today, was called ‘He Lives Within My Soul’. It was arranged by H.B. Barnum and appeared on Mothers, in 1970. Her rendition of the classic ‘Fever’, considered by many as one of the best versions ever released of that song, is one of the highlights of the album. This track can also be found on some compilations such as ‘Soul Sides Volume Two: The Covers’, ‘Living in the Streets 2’ and ‘Even Mo’ Mod Jazz’. There are also great versions of other soul hits like Sam Cooke’s ‘Change Gonna Come’ and ‘Shake’ and Otis Redding’s ‘Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)’ and ‘Sitting on the Dock of the Bay’. Her second album ‘Sharon Cash’, was released on Playboy, in 1973.
