Betty Davis interview

Egg City Radio has a wonderful 30 minute phone interview with Betty Davis*, archived from an old Sound of Young America radio show. The cognitive dissonance that mounts over the course of the interview–between the soft-spoken, introverted, mom-like spoken voice of Davis today, and the over-the-top fire-spitting soulful funk of Davis’s singing in the musical interludes–it’s really incredible. Here is a person who is extremely comfortable in her own skin.

I listened to it twice.

*For the record, this interview is with Betty Davis, not Bette Davis.
