Fatboy Slim got the lyrical hook for his hit "Praise You" from Yarbrough's "Take Yo' Praise," so it's no surprise her '70s album The Iron Pot Cooker, which includes it, has been re-released. But this ain't dance music — Yarbrough's mostly spoken-word vocals course over jazzy congas, funky guitars and pulsating keyboards. Her takes on spirituality and gender politics stand up to Gil-Scott Heron's.
