Mid '70s deep funk and smouldering soul, Miami-style. Only laying down a handful of 45s during her career, Lynn Williams wasn't particularly prolific but what she did release has since become highly collectable with both of these sides fetching heavy triple figures over the years. "It Takes Two" is a sultry hip-strutting deep funk jam with a sleaze hanging off the groove while "Don't Be Surprised" is a much darker, barbed soul affair. A string-surged ballad, entrenched in authentic emotion; it's the female equivalent of Isaac Hayes's "I Can't Go To Sleep".
