She's bad, she's bold, she's mean and she's on the scene. She's Marlena, with her new flip side radio single.

The first song on the new CD is It's A Man's World, recorded by Mr. Please, Please, Please, Godfather of Soul hinself, Mr. James Brown, on King Records in 1968.

Marlena sings her heart out with this tribute to the hardest working man in show business who has always been one of her favorite entertainers.

Having lived in New York City in her younger years, she went to see James Brown in concert at the Apollo Theater, in Harlem, New York. After the show, she sneaked

backstage to meet and talk to Mr. Brown. This was a high point in her young life, and he inspired her in her own quest towards pursuing music. Recording It's A Man's World

years later really means the world to her. Marlena feels that she has done this song justice, and that the people will love it the same way she loved singing and recording it.

It's A Man's World is a super, strong, forthright rendition, with the mellow guitar licks played by Warren Carr, out of Louisiana. Even though the song is a hot classic from

the past, Marlena hopes to bring it up to the present all over again and make it happen. Recorded on Bogue/Magic City Records, located in Bogalusa, Louisiana, and

produced by Herschel Dwellingham.

On the flip side of this CD is a hot blues tune entitled Bed Time Story, written by Marlena and Herschel Dwellingham. "Have you seen your baby yet?" is the question

Marlena is asking all of you ladies out there, on this red-hot blues tune. This song is mellow, yet sassy, down and dirty, with that Southern Soul flavor, and that Bogue/Magic

City sound. Her voice is strong and clear and is getting down with the get down. That gut-wrenching singing guitar sound by Warren Carr puts the cap on it and brings it

on home. Bed Time Story is a bad mam-a-jam-a and gets it on with the real deal. It's blues at its' best. Marlena is really on to something with her message to the female

population and she loves to do material and write material that always has a hint of reality and truth. You'll enjoy the message and the music. Co-produced by Marlena

and Herschel Dwellingham for Bogue/Magic CIty Records, with that Magic City sound, awesome! It's A Man's World and Bed Time Story are two great songs. You will

really enjoy listening to them. This CD is smokin' !!!. Marlena, you go, girl.
