Love Sensation: Expanded Edition - Loleatta Holloway

Love Sensation: Expanded Edition
·       Loleatta Holloway was a dance music legend. Her amazing vocal talents gained her the reputation as one of the premier vocalists of soul and dance music during the 70’s and 80’s. Holloway started her singing career with Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker (and her Caravans) before striking out on her own. She released her first single "Rainbow ‘71” on the fledgling Apache label before moving to Aware to record her first two albums prior to her work with Gold Mind/Salsoul.
·       Holloway’s first album for Gold Mind was "Loleatta” (CDBBR0108) which spawned the R&B/Dance hits ‘Worn Out Broken Heart,’ ‘Hit And Run’ and ‘Dreamin’.’ She recorded two more albums for Gold Mind/Salsoul before contributing vocals to the disco classic ‘Re-light My Fire’ by Dan Hartman, who went on to write and produce the title track for her fourth and final album for Gold Mind/Salsoul, LOVE SENSATION. 
·       LOVE SENSATION, released in 1980, provided Holloway with several disco hits. Not least was the title track and album opener which scorched  dance floors and propelled this heavily sampled classic to the #1 spot on the Billboard dance charts and rivals her recording of the timeless classic ‘Run Away,’ with The Salsoul Orchestra, as her most enduring performance.  ‘Dance What ‘Cha Wanna’ and ‘Short End Of The Stick’ (both penned by Bobby and Cecil Womack) were also strong dance floor favourites, the former of which would bring even the most rooted wallflower to express themselves with abandon. Holloway also shows off her incredible range and vocal nuance on the ballads ‘My Way’ (Bobby Womack) and the classic Jerry Butler and Otis Redding composition ‘I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.’ 
·       BBR is very proud to bring you LOVE SENSATION, completely remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content. Ideal for all R&B, Soul, Disco and Salsoul fans.

Just For You/All Night Music
· Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, the brother-and-sister group The McCrarys began their career in the gospel field recording their first LP in 1972. However, it was a move into secular music in 1978 that brought the team national prominence in the US when their debut album for Portrait Records, "Loving Is Living” achieved success, in part due to the Top 10 R&B hit, ‘You’ which featured one of their champions, Stevie Wonder. After their label follow-up LP, "On The Other Side,” the group signed a new deal with Capitol Records in 1980.
· Consisting of sisters Charity and Linda and brothers Alfred, Howard and Sam, The McCrarys worked with producer/musician Patrick Henderson (whose roots were also in the gospel field). With seven tracks credited to various members of the group as songwriters, JUST FOR YOU included the key cut, ‘Any Ol’ Sunday’ which was recorded by Chaka Khan in 1981.
· Teamed with former member of The Crusaders, Wayne Henderson (producer of Ronnie Laws, Esther Phillips, Side Effect and Pleasure among others), the group’s second Capitol LP, ALL NIGHT MUSIC fared better. The track, ‘Love On A Summer Night’ became a Top 100 US R&B hit single and a constant favourite – and now classic - in the UK with ‘smooth groove’fans.
· Apart from a limited Japanese pressing of "All Night Music”, both albums are making their worldwide CD debut with this SoulMusic Records reissue, which includes notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring with 2013 quotes from members of the group.

Billy Preston & Syreeta
  • Continuing to reissue classic original albums from the Motown catalogue, SoulMusic Records is very proud to present the worldwide CD debut of the self-titled 1981 album by BILLY PRESTON and SYREETA, an expanded edition with seven bonus tracks.
  • Billy Preston (through mid’-70s hits such as ‘Will It Go Round In Circles’ and ‘Nothing From Nothing’) and Syreeta (former wife of Stevie Wonder with four critically-acclaimed albums to her credit) were established as recording artists in their own right when, as Motown label-mates, they worked together on the 1979 soundtrack for the film, "Fast Break.” While the film itself made no impact, one track from the album, the beautiful ballad ‘With You I’m Born Again’ (included as a bonus track on this reissue along with an instrumental version of the song) became a Top 5 UK hit prompting Motown to release the single in the US where it reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 100 chart.
  • Encouraged by the single’s success, Syreeta’s 1980 self-titled LP (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013, SMCR-5094) featured two more duets with Billy, ‘One More Time For Love’ and ‘Please Stay,’ both included as bonus tracks on this release along with a non-album ‘B’ side ‘It Will Come In Time.’ The pair recorded BILLY PRESTON & SYREETA in 1981 working with producers including David Shire & Carol Connors, Ollie E. Brown and Michael Masser.
  • Bonus tracks include two versions of ‘Go For It’ (from "Fast Break”) and the reissue includes notes by UK Motown expert Sharon Davis with 2013 quotes from producer/songwriter Carol Connors.
