"Acting Up" once again featured the production genius of the legendary Bert De Coteaux with musical contributions from Abraham Laboriel whose talent made him one of the most in demand bass players of recent years, travelling and working with artists such as Lionel Ritchie, Quincy Jones and Chaka Khan to name a few and on drums, ex-Motown session drummer, Quentin Dennard, all of which helped the album reach an impressive #60 on the Cash Box R&B Charts and #171 on the Billboard 200.

A record as fierce and blunt as its title portends, Who Is This Bitch, Anyway? vaults Marlena Shaw into a brave new world of feminism and funk, updating the sophisticated soul-jazz approach of her previous records to explore a fast-changing musical, political, and sexual landscape. Opening with "You, Me and Ethel," a hilarious satire of the singles bar culture, the album dissects modern romance with uncommon insight and candor, addressing lust ("Feel Like Makin' Love") and loss ("You Been Away Too Long") without pulling any punches. The music is similarly direct and progressive, running the gamut from luminous soul to scorching funk grooves. Not only Shaw's best-selling Blue Note release, Who Is This Bitch, Anyway? represents her creative apex as well.
