Listening to Maxine Brown's discography for the first time is not entirely unlike hearing the late Timi Yuro's – you just can't believe that this woman recorded this many great songs. Both with and without her singing partner Chuck Jackson – another artist with a staggering clutch of records under his belt – Brown became one of the most consistent soul hit makers of the '60s. Hers was an East Coast brand of soul, similar to that of Baby Washington's, that went right to the core of songs like "Ask Me," "Oh No, Not My Baby" and "It's Gonna Be Alright."
