    Recording information: 1968-1977.
    Mary Gresham was an unsung but important figure in the flourishing Muscle Shoals soul scene of the late `60s. Her backing vocals and songwriting talents were featured on many of the most striking deep soul sides to emerge from studios like Fame and Muscle Shoals Sound. Of the 24 cuts compiled on VOICE FROM THE SHADOWS, only four, including the lovelorn "Let's Walk Down The Street Together," saw release at the time of their recording.
    Approximately half of these songs date to the late `60s and feature the punchy, horn driven arrangements that were a Muscle Shoals trademark. The latter half of VOICE FROM THE SHADOWS dates from the mid-to-late '70s and boasts a smooth, modern soul sound reminiscent of Clarence Carter's keyboard-driven records from the same period.

  • Critic Reviews
    Living Blues (p.65) - "Gresham's voice is impressive throughout -- grainy yet supple, shot through with both soul-baring emotion and upward-arching spiritual ecstasy."
