25: “Do Your Duty” by Bettye LaVette

Doody.Betty LaVette expects a certain amount of active participation from her man.  In 1969, this demanding track, “Do Your Duty,” was on the Top 40 R&B charts.

Today, Betty LaVette is still making music and demanding that duties be upheld.  She had great success in 2005 with I’ve Got My Own Hell to Raise.  She’s currently on tour in the U.S.

Do your duty, and enjoy.
