Release Date:09/25/2007;Notes:Her 2005 acclaimed release, "I've Got My Own Hell to Raise", brought well-deserved recognition to this R&B maverick who's been recording since the early 60s. Now comes the almost autobiographical "Scene of the Crime". to make music this raw and direct, Bettye enlisted "dirty south" rockers the Drive By Truckers as her backup band. With swampy guitars, slippery Wurlitzer piano, and a driving backline, this record conjures up the spirit of great loose 70s bands like the Faces while offering Bettye an urgent, vital setting for her razor-sharp vocals. Recorded in Muscle Shoals, AL, where she recorded "Child of the Seventies" in 1972 - a masterpiece that was shelved then released 30 years later. Returning to Muscle Shoals was like returning to the scene of a crime thus the album title, and the intense, personal music within.;Track List:1. I Still Want to Be Your Baby (Take Me Like I Am);2. Choices;3. Jealousy;4. You Don't Know Me at All;5. Somebody Pick Up My Pieces;6. They Call It Love;7. Last Time;8. Talking Old Soldiers;9. Before the Money Came (The Battle of Bettye Lavette);10. I Guess We Shouldn't Talk About That Now
