    Self-Portrait/I Am What I Am contains Ruth Copeland's first two albums on one disc. Copeland was a talented vocalist that was capable of anything from R&B and hot funk to folky pop. Her material didn't always match her talents, but she was supported by a tight, exciting band (Eddie Hazel plays on her blistering version of "Gimme Shelter") that helps make this two-fer of interest to '70s funk fetishists. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
