Doris Willingham, an incredibly soulful girl from New Jersey recorded her first single in 1966 and became a session singer, mostly in Philadelphia, singing back-up for Nina Simone and many others. In 1969, former Atlantic Records producer Jerry 'Swamp Dogg' Williams Jr. signed her as a solo artist, renaming her Doris Duke and recorded the album "I'm A Loser" at the Capricorn studios in Macon, Georgia. The first single, "To the Other Woman", reached no. 7 on the Billboard R&B chart, but further lack of promotion from a label that was about to fold saw the album slip into obscurity. Today it is regarded as one of the finest deep soul records of all time. Presented here is the original album, newly remastered.
