I just bought a RARE copy of Madame X from eBay- which I just paid $121 (my wallet is bleeding heavily). Been looking for that CD for over 20 yrs. I’m a huge fan of Bernadette Cooper. This looks really good. Can’t wait to hear it….

Often described as "the female Cameo" - Madame X's "Red On Black" album is nowadays indeed a hard record to find. Noted for a very dry funk production, sparse jamming and sometimes unusual instrumentation (there's a genuine, acoustic harp on the intro of the title track!), the sonic quality of the vocals somewhat foreshadows En Vogue. The single "Just That type Of Girl", alongside the B side opener "I Want Your Body" got the most air and clubplay at the time, but it's the brilliant title track, "Madame X" that's the highlight of this album. Ladies' funk par excellence - don't miss this if you find it.
