Fontella Bass - Rescue Me from the album The Best Of (1965)




"Rescue Me" is a rhythm and blues song first recorded and released as a single by Fontella Bass (July 3, 1940 – December 26, 2012) in 1965. The original versions of the record, and BMI, give the songwriting credit to Raynard Miner and Carl William Smith, although many other sources also credit Bass herself as a co-writer. It would prove the biggest hit of Bass's career, reaching #1 on the R&B charts for four weeks and placing at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Rescue Me" also peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.
