After a seven-year, seven-album tenure with Arista
Records (from 1978-1985) – which started with the release of her GRP album
Angie (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2012, SMCR-5039) - renowned singer / songwriter
Angela Bofill took a three-year hiatus from recording, moving to Northern
California as a then-newly wed with a new born daughter. In 1988, she was eager to step back into the
studio: the result was INTUITION, her
sole album for Capitol Records.
The Bronx, New York-born artist worked with two
primary producers for the project, musician and recording artist in his own
right Norman Connors and Vincent Brantley, fresh from hits with such ’80s
hitmakers as New Edition and Klymaxx.
Bofill also produced two tracks herself, the self-penned composition ‘Love
Overtime’ and ‘Fragile, Handle With Care,’ written by Robbie Nevil and Siedah
The sessions with Connors included a remake of the
1978 Gino Vanelli hit ‘I Just Wanna Stop’ which became the album’s key single
(reaching No. 11 on the U.S. R&B charts) as well as ‘For You And I,’ a
standout ballad duet with Peabo Bryson.
Highlights among Brantley’s tracks were ‘Love Is In Your Eyes’ (a
personal Bofill favourite) and ‘Everlasting Love.’
This expanded edition of INTUITION (long out of print) includes two bonus track single edits
and notes by renowned US writer Darnell Meyers-Johnson with quotes from Angela
herself, Vincent Brantley, arranger Benjamin Wright and former Capitol
executive Wayne Edwards.
