However, there are a few things I would like to clear up, which I found inaccurate or inappropriate. The Jackie Wilson episode I found rather distasteful, particularly since he is not around to defend himself(it was o.k. to slander Al Green). Also, as I had to do with Gladys in her book, I need to clarify a few inaccurate points you raised in your book. In reading your relationship with Atlantic Records in the 1960's, one is left with the impression your group wasn't given a fair shot due to the success of Aretha. Well, that's not totally true, since you were with the label two years before she signed on. It just wasn't your time yet! Now is your time. You sound greater and look more beautiful than ever. You have a wonderful spirit in which people adore you far and near. You are truly a blessing. Wonderful job.
I have read the life stories of many, but none so captivating and heartfelt. She made me say, "Patti, Patti! I could not read fast enough and was disappointed when I finished - I know this good thing had to come to an end, but I was addicted to the story.
We all know Patti can blow. She is the best performer I have seen. When you pay you for a concert, you don't always get your monies worth, but with Patti you are guaranteed.
This book is a guarantee, just like her performances. Why do you think she is always on anything Essence magazine is doing?
