BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE
This 12″ holds a special place for me, it was the first 12″ donated to Burning The Ground by one of my readers. I originally posted it on October 10, 2008 on the old blogger site. This is a completely new rip from the vinyl and I am happy to offer it in flac format for the first time.
Vesta Williams (born 1963, Coshocton, Ohio) is an American R&B singer. Originally credited by her full name, she has been billed simply as Vesta since the 1990s. She is known for her full four-octave voice range.
Vesta scored her first record deal in 1986 with A&M records which released her first self entitled album Vesta. The album featured her first Top 10 R&B hit “Once Bitten, Twice Shy”. The song peaked at #9 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and #45 Hot Dance Club Songs.
