Written by Cindy Bullens, David Mansfield
My reaction to "Cidny Bullens" is, it doesn't teach me anything, so I'd rather myself look back to a tomboyish girl from once upon a time, named, Cindy Bullens that teaches me the importance of being a natural woman that she was back then. Thanks to me, who helped CD Baby re-release her first 2 albums, "Desire Wire" and "Steal the Night" in the mp3 format by purchasing a money order, so here is the story:
Cindy Bullens (born Cynthia Bullens March 21, 1955) is an American singer-songwriter who grew up in Massachusetts. Bullens released two albums in the late 1970s on United Artists and Casablanca and another in 1989.
Bullens' 1978 debut album, Desire Wire is described flatly by William Ruhlmann for Allmusic as: "One of the great lost rock albums of the 1970s, Bullens' debut release is full of tough, passionate, incredibly catchy rock & roll played to the hilt and sung with fire". These early albums anticipated later work by a host of 1980s female and female-identified rock artists, from Pat Benatar, to Blondie, to the Go-Go's, to Headpins.
In 1974, Bullens performed background vocals on Gene Clark's album No Other and as one of the Sex-O-Lettes on the debut album by Disco-Tex and the Sex-O-Lettes.
Bullens also served as a backup vocalist on Rod Stewart's Atlantic Crossing and with Elton John on three major tours, as well as his album Blue Moves and his hit with Kiki Dee, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" (both released in 1976).
Bullens provided vocals on three songs ("It's Raining on Prom Night," "Mooning," and "Freddy, My Love") on the soundtrack of the 1977 feature film, Grease. The album release Grease was nominated for the 1979 Grammy Award for "Album of the Year".
In 1980, she earned another Grammy nomination (as "best female rock singer") for her single "Survivor".
In January 1980, Bullens hit the Billboard Hot 100 with the song "Trust Me." It peaked at #90. Bullens withdrew from the music business in the early 1980s to raise a family, returning i
Minnie Riperton, was an American singer-songwriter best known for her 1975 single "Lovin' You" and her five-octave coloratura soprano. She is also widely known for her use of the whistle register and has been referred to by the media as the "Queen of the whistle register". Born in 1947, Riperton grew up in Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side. As a child, she studied music, drama and dance at Chicago's Lincoln Center. In her teen years, she sang lead vocals for the Chicago-based girl group The Gems. Her early affiliation with the legendary Chicago-based Chess Records afforded her the opportunity to sing backup for various established artists such as Etta James, Fontella Bass, Ramsey Lewis, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters. While at Chess, Riperton also sang lead for the experimental rock/soul group Rotary Connection, from 1967 to 1971.
On April 5, 1975, Riperton reached the apex of her career with her No. 1 single, "Lovin' You". The single was the last release from her 1974 gold album entitled Perfect Angel. In January 1976, Riperton was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a radical mastectomy. By the time of diagnosis, the cancer had metastasized and she was given about six months to live. Despite the grim prognosis, she continued recording and touring. She was one of the first celebrities to go public with her breast cancer diagnosis but did not disclose she was terminally ill. In 1977, she became a spokesperson for the American Cancer Society. In 1978, she received the American Cancer Society's Courage Award which was presented to her at the White House by President Jimmy Carter. Riperton died of cancer on July 12, 1979 at age 31.
