'Goddess' is a classic example of the changing face of pop music in the late 80's early 90's, by fusing styles, samples, beats and hooks as perfectly illustrated by their hit single 'Hippychick’.

The CD features the 12 tracks of the original album release plus four bonus tracks.

The CD features the #8 UK smash 'Hippychick' which also reached the top 20 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and the US Hot Dance Club Play chart, outselling Delite's Groove Is In The Heart which was released at the same time.

 

The bonus tracks are: Hippychick - Never Trust A Hippy. The result of a studio accident, when a piece of sampling machinery broke and the stuttered samples over the top of the breaks became the mix that broke Hippychick with the loved-up, E-d out Brits who holidayed in the Med in 1990.Scorpio Rising - the story of a man who got his ultimate, final kicks watching a his wife have sex with a stranger through a two way mirror as he gradually chokes to death.  Very limited release as a bonus track for the cassingle release of Out Of My Mind. 1st time on CD.Keep The Faith - a pre-Things Can Only Get Better tune written to keep spirits up in the darkest days of Thatcher's rule in the late 80s.  Never previously released, although it was played live a few times. 1st time on CD.Never Stop - originally part of the Goddess album, ended up as a USA-only B side. Another feminist anthem-on-a-motorbike.

Battle Hymns For Children Singing The Best Of Haysi Fantayzee
Haysi Fantayzee were formed in 1981 by fashion photographer Kate Garner, former Animal Magnet member Paul Caplin and Jeremy Healy, a well-known face on London's club scene. Together they set about injecting a sense of fun and adventure into the music scene, wearing outlandish, selfdesigned costumes and dreadlocks, and writing songs that married sexual subversion with deliberately disposable and cocksure dayglo pop.

Their 'Dickensian Rasta' look was an immediate hit and saw their debut single 'John Wayne Is Big Leggy' rise to number 11 in the national charts. In their brief career they would also enjoy chart success with 'Holy Joe' and 'Shiny Shiny'. All three hits are reprised on this CD, as is their sole album, Battle Hymns For Children Singing.

The package also features a host of bonus tracks, remixes, and sleevenotes written with the co-operation of both Healy and Garner. The former went on to become one of the UK's most successful DJs, while the latter is an accomplished and in-demand photographer for artists including Sinead O'Connor, Bjork, David Bowie and others.

Totally Tata Expanded Edition (Original Recordings Remastered, Bonus Tracks)
Side by side with the reissue of TATA VEGA’s 1976 Full Speed Ahead Motown debut, Soul Music.com Records is very proud to be releasing the multi-talented artist's sophomore album for the label TOTALLY TATA .Released in 1977, TOTALLY TATA once again provided a great musical setting for the native New Yorker. Musicians for the sessions included Andre Lewis (of the Motown group Mandre), Paulinho Da Costa and John Barneswith arrangements by Al Johnson (of Back For More fame) who also worked on Full Speed Ahead and was featured on the key cut track You’ll Never Rock Alone (co-written by Brenda Russell)Totally Tata includes a wonderful version of Stevie Wonder’s Blame It On The Sun, the standout Love Comes From The Most Unexpected Places and the spectacular Come In Heaven (Earth Is Calling), co-written by Marvin Gaye's ex-wife Anna Gordy and Gaye collaborator Elgie Stover with Tata and a staple in Tata’s recording and performance repertoire.

Like its predecessor, TOTALLY TATA was embraced by Motown music lovers worldwide who are elated that the album previously only available on a now out-of-print limited edition Japanese CD is making its return with three bonus tracks: the A and B sides of the planned-but-never-released single version of Come In Heaven and Tata s second version of You’ll Never Rock Alone a duet with Jermaine Jackson, issued on the Motown album Pops, We Love You


Press:-

"It’s hard to imagine a talent like Tata Vega establishing a foothold in the music industry at any other time than the 1970’s. A 5ft nothing, curvy Puerto Rican vocal powerhouse possessed of a startling unique delivery, she certainly would have had a hard time blending into the background of ‘60s girl groups like The Vandellas and Supremes, and would later struggle in the shoulder-padded MTV dominated ‘80s.”

Bonnie Pointer : Expanded Edition
Released on 23rd of January. The founding member of THE POINTER SISTERS, BONNIE POINTER began her performing career in San Francisco nightclubs in 1969. Soon joined by youngest sister June then by elder sisters Ruth and Anita, The Pointer Sisters released a string of hits on Blue Thumb, trailblazing from genre to genre, including funk and jazz, and won their first Grammy award for the country song FAIRYTALE, written by Anita and Bonnie, which would be recorded by ELVIS PRESLEY two years before his death.

In 1976, Bonnie Pointer left the group and soon after signed with Motown. Produced by (her later husband) Jeffrey Bowen, her first Motown album was a critical and commercial success. First single FREE MY FROM MY FREEDOM reached the R&B top 10 in 1978 and was distinctive for being a disco-era funk record with a surprising banjo solo. The album also featured the classic Motown covers WHEN I’M GONE (Brenda Holloway) and HEAVEN MUST HAVE SENT YOU (The Elgins). The latter was soon rerecorded in a Disco style, becoming a top 20 Pop and top 10 Disco hit and a dance classic. Both versions are included in this reissue

Wendy and Lisa
Having brought their esoteric funk leanings to Prince & The Revolution through their purple reign in the early 80s, Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman split to pursue their own maverick musical path in 1986. Their self-titled debut saw the duo (who recently won their first Emmy for the soundtrack to hit US drama ‘Nurse Jackie’) at their most creatively daring and typically eclectic – ranging from Minneapolis funk to jazz fusion and acoustic balladry.
Included on this Special Edition CD of 15 remastered tracks are:
The original 1987 album containing the singles ‘Waterfall’, ‘Sideshow’ and ‘Honeymoon Express’, written and produced by Wendy & Lisa with Bobby Z. Includes guest appearance by veteran jazz saxophonist Tom Scott. A must-have for all Prince fans.
Bonus tracks include hard-to-find 12” mixes of all the album’s singles.

A comprehensive booklet featuring discography and an exclusive interview and track-by-track review by Lisa Coleman with ex-Attitude editor Adam Mattera.
