A Sign of the Times: The Spark Recordings 1975-6 - Tommy Hunt

A Sign of the Times: The Spark Recordings 1975-6

· TOMMY HUNT needs no introduction to Northern Soul fans: the vocalist was already a star before being adopted by the scene in the 1970s.

 

· Hunt made his name in Chicago with doo wop act The Flamingos before relocating to New York in 1960 to enjoy a successful solo career. By 1969, he was based in the UK.

 

· In 1975, Tommy was signed to Spark to record tracks aimed at the burgeoning Northern Soul scene. ‘Crackin’ Up’ reached No. 39, followed in 1976 by ‘Loving On The Losing Side’ (No. 28) and ‘One Fine Morning’ (No. 44).

 

· Hunt’s resulting LP, A Sign Of The Times (1976), now debuts on CD, coupled with an historic album Live At Wigan Casino, captured at the legendary Northern Soul venue (1975).

 

· The package is designed by noted Northern Soul reissue expert Glenn Gunton (Joe Boy, Outta Sight, etc.).

Born To Love
When Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack teamed up in 1983 to record the Capitol album BORN TO LOVE, the pair had already experienced success as a duo thanks to the 1980 LP, Live & More (a Top 10 R&B best-selling album). By the time they headed into the studio to cut BORN TO LOVE, Bryson was six years into his recording career and had established himself as one of the premier black male vocalists of the day; Flack was already considered an internationally-renowned artist thanks to classic recordings such as ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ and ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song.’
With tracks produced by songwriters Michael Masser, Bob Crewe and Bryson himself, BORN TO LOVE achieved gold status in the US as well as becoming both artists’ highest-charting international success. The impact of the now-classic single, ‘Tonight, I Celebrate My Love’ (co-written by Masser, then known for songs such as Diana Ross’ ‘Touch Me In The Morning’ and Natalie Cole’s ‘Someone That I Used To Love’ and Gerry Goffin) was global, reaching No. 2 on the UK charts, No. 10 in Australia, No. 4 in Canada and No. 16 in the US).
The album also included two other charted singles, ‘Maybe’ and ‘You’re Looking Like Love To Me’ while ‘Heaven Above Me’ got radio and club play in the UK.
This 2013 expanded edition of BORN TO LOVE includes three bonus tracks along with liner notes by Billboard Senior Editor, Gail Mitchell with new quotes from Roberta Flack.

Watchin’ TV (With The Radio On)/You Can’t Get Off With Your Shoes On
· Barefoot Jerry was an American Southern rock and country rock band, based in Nashville, Tennessee, active from 1971 to 1977.

· It was composed of area studio musicians under the tutelage of Wayne Moss, and Mac Gayden (Barefoot Jerry was a store next to where Mac Gayden lived in the Smoky Mtns. and Barefoot Jerry the older fiddle playing man inside). Mac named the group from him. They were both lead guitarists of Area Code 615 and other 615 alumni.

· These two albums from the bands mid-period, contain some of their finest work and are hard to get on CD. The albums have been re-mastered and contain new liner notes from Malcolm Dome and enhanced artwork

Prophecy
·       THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM 80s PROGRESSIVE ROCK LEGENDS SOLSTICE
·       FEATURING THREE REMIXES BY STEVEN WILSON
·       UK CONCERTS IN THE AUTUMN OF 2013

Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the new studio album by 80s Progressive Rock legends Solstice. In the 1980s Solstice were one of the leading lights of the UK Progressive scene.  Still fronted by guitarist Andy Glass, and also featuring Steve McDaniel (keyboards), Robin Phillips (bass), Pete Hemsley (drums), Jenny Newman (violin) and Emma Brown (vocals), the band’s iconic blend of soaring violin and guitar weaving around delicately passionate female vocals, underpinned by driving rhythmic complexity remains true and is much in force on "Prophecy”, their latest studio offering.   This excellent album also features four bonus tracks, three of which are new remixes by Solstice aficionado Steven Wilson.
