Millie Jackson - Caught Up/Still Caught Up RIAA Certified Gold! Click here to see this CD at Amazon.com!

By Douglas Wolk

The 1974 Caught Up was Millie Jackson's breakthrough, a soul opera about infidelity with Jackson playing the "other woman" on one side-long suite, punctuated with an extended, down-and-dirty rap, and the wronged wife on the other. With the Muscle Shoals rhythm section's rippling pulse and slick, protodisco orchestrations backing up Jackson's histrionic but sensitive readings of a string of cheating-song covers (plus some originals that advance the plot), this was as high-concept as '70s soul got, and it's kept its savage emotional force even as its style dates it. This reissue couples it with the 1975 sequel Still Caught Up, which forces the narrative a little (it ends with the mistress going insane and being hauled away!) but spawned the hit "Leftovers."

"Millie's Caught Up and Still Caught Up albums were exceptionally well done and highly underrated masterpieces. They serve as a reminder what a talent Millie was and continues to be. I've read that Millie said in an interview that "Only black people buy her records." Well...I would like Millie to know that there are folks out here like me who are not black and are loving her music. Continue the good work Millie!"

"I was in my teens in the Super70s when I discovered Millie Jackson.
I do not want to put the blame on her but she played a big part in what I later on did. To be precise, she made it seem as if moving out with a married man and putting up fights for the relationship was ok. To a teenagers mind at that time if Millie Jackson did it why not me. This is one person whose music has caused alot of pain in many homes. Whose music has influenced negatively on a lot of relationships. I have not heard much from her for a long while but I hope young people are more focused and they will not let the words of the music influence their decisions."

"Still brilliant. My old discs are battered and scratched and crackle like a bag of Golden Wonder Crisps but still get played."

"Used to have this LP years ago - gone now - and realised (listening to it the other day) JUST WHAT A CLASSIC IT IS! Brilliant."

"My mother owned this album as a child I loved the power of this women who would fight for her man. As I grew these songs became the anthem for all my break ups. Wailing along with Millie to "Tell her its over", and "ain't no woman in her right mind gonna sit back and just let another women come in a take her man. IF HE'S REALLY WORTH HAVING" help me though many a tough transition. In life we often end up on both sides of the relationship coin throughout our lives thanks to this album I have understood that most of my life. I came to this site searching for the album (I wasn't even sure of the name) as the cassette I have is badly worn (over 15 years old and many breakups) and I need to replace it with a CD. "
