Billy Paul originally recorded "Ebony Woman" in 1959, but it didn't make much noise. It served as the title track for a good, though uneven, mid-'70s release. Paul never equaled the success of "Me & Mrs. Jones," but was a consistent attraction for Philadelphia International in the early '70s. His albums used the same formula as this one -- some adult ballads, one or two dance-oriented tunes, and some in-between numbers that tapped his background as a jazz singer but weren't done in such a sophisticated manner that they angered the R&B faithful. ~ Ron Wynn
