Millie Jackson is best known for her bold sexual content and her honest, often saucy spoken interludes. BETWEEN THE SHEETS bucks that popular image by compiling 16 tracks of Jackson's more straightforward R&B material. Smooth jams, glossy production, and quiet storm dynamics are the order of the day here, and Jackson's performances hold up surprisingly well without the provocative histrionics, thanks in large part to her beautifully textured, soulful voice. Those seeking a more thorough representation of Jackson's output might want to try some of her studio albums, or Rhino's TOTALLY UNRESTRICTED! anthology, but BETWEEN THE SHEETS is a well-selected set that spotlights Jackson's prowess as a no-frills soul singer.
