Two very rare funk-soul albums (on  one disc) which George Clinton's Parliament were the backing band as Ruth  Copeland was an integral part of the early 70's band. Copeland effortlessly  blends soul, funk,blues, psychedelia and acoustic material onto these albums.  The second album 'I Am What I Am' had an incredible version of the Stones  classic 'Gimme Shelter'. Funk out! ~ Freak Emporium

Rare funky work  by Ruth Copeland -- a Detroit-based female rock singer, but one who worked with  George Clinton on a number of her tracks -- giving her albums a hard funky sound  that's right up there with early work by Parliament or Funkadelic! The CD  features both Ruth's albums for the Invictus label -- Self Portrait and I Am  What I Am -- the former of which has great work by Clinton, who also wrote a  number of the songs. Titles include "Your Love Been So Good To Me", which starts  with a very fuzzy electric break, and "I Got a Thing For You Daddy", which has  some great spacey guitars on the intro! Other cuts include "Child of the North",  "The Medal", "Gimme Shelter", "Play With Fire", "Hare Krishna", "Suburban Family  Lament", "No Commitment", "A Gift of Me", and "The Music Box".
