A Woman's Story
by Cher

Album: released as a single (1974)


  • This song is a haunting reflection of a prostitute's life. It was produced by Phil Spector, who released it as his first single with Warner-Spector Records. Spector was familiar with Cher, as she sang backup on many of his productions, including the hit "Be My Baby."
  • The B-side was a cover of "Baby, I Love You," which Spector originally recorded with The Ronettes. Cher sang backup on the original.

  • Edwin from Vancouver, BcGreat production and the perfect choice for vocalist. Was way too cool and complex to be a radio hit... too bad, more people would have heard it.
