Rue Davis' debut CD, You Are My
Honey Poo , appeared in 1995 on the Kon-kord label. He
moved to Avanti Records, where he issued two 1998 LP'S,
Sings With Friends and Somebody Wants You
Candy Sweet and Dapp Daddy
(Off The Hook, K.O.W.) followed in the 00's before Davis
returned to Kon-kord for a reprise of his '95 material
(including "My Honey Poo") entitled Heaven Has Sent Me
Your Love .
For Real , on Studio Showtime, appeared in
2005, featuring a vintage-Isleys-styled song, "Between The
Sheets," that captured fan interest across the chitlin' circuit.
In addition, Rue Davis has appeared on many other
Southern Soul artists' discs over the years, perhaps most
memorably on a duet (from the CD Bettin' On You
, Kon-Kord) with Patti Sterling on a super-charged cover
of Z.Z. Hill's "Love Is So Good When You're Stealing It." Davis
seems to be standing in for all the great soul singers of the
past as he convincingly anchors the young, blue-eyed songstress
Sterling, who growls and snaps like a reincarnated Della Reese.
