Bettye LaVette at the World Cafe Live

Soul singer Bettye LaVette plays the World Cafe Live on Saturday night. The 66 year old Detroiter who's now a West Orange, New Jersey resident sustains her ongoing comeback with her new album Thankful N' Thoughtful, which is out this week, and her colorful-to-say-the-least memoir, A Woman Like Me, written with David Ritz, which is also newly in stores. 

I interviewed LaVette for this past Tuesday's Inquirer, and you can read all about it here. Below, check out videos of her two hits from the '60s, "My Man - He's A Lovin' Man" and "Let Me Down Easy," as well as her performance of The Who's "Love Reign O'er Me" from the 2008 Kennedy Center honors, plus a cover of Bob Dylan's "Everything Is Broken" from Thankful N' Thoughtful.   Show info is here.
