Blue Gene / Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland - Gene Pitney

Blue Gene / Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland
Comprises two original albums, including Pitney’s first UK Top 5 hit ‘Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa’ and its follow-up, the Jagger/Richards-penned ‘That Girl Belongs To Yesterday’.
Booklet features the original Musicor album sleeves and updated liner notes by Pitney authority Roger Dopson.
Superior sound quality throughout.
GENE PITNEY was one of the most prolific and successful international artists of the 1960s, releasing some twenty-five albums (plus a further dozen or so "Greatest Hits” sets) and around thirty-five singles.
In the 1990s, Sequel Records paired up Gene’s original LPs as 2-on-1s, plus bonus tracks and all mastered from first-generation tapes. Pitney himself was delighted with the results. Sadly Gene died in 2006 whilst touring the UK, by which time these 2-on-1s had long been deleted. However, thanks to RPM, these well-regarded compilations are once again available.
Released in November 1963, Blue Gene was Gene’s fourth US album and the first to be released in the UK where it reached No.7 in April 1964. The plug track ‘Tulsa’ was complemented by covers of popular standards (‘I’ll Be Seeing You’, ‘Answer Me, My Love’) and new material (‘Yesterday’s Hero’, ‘I Can’t Run Away’). The UK edition differed by one track; ‘Take It Like A Man’ was the closer in place of ‘House Without Windows’.
Following hard on its heels that December came Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland, a "concept” album which marked a departure from the usual hit-driven formula. In an attempt to woo the teen market, the album was hastily repackaged as Dedicated To My Teen Queens and remains one of Gene’s rarest albums. Gene’s second UK Top 10 single, ‘That Girl Belongs To Yesterday’, is included here by way of a bonus.

Goddess Of Love
The second reissue from the Arista catalogue of much-loved and much-missed songstress Phyllis Hyman (following the April 2013 release of SOMEWHERE IN MY LIFETIME, SMCR-5092), GODDESS OF LOVE marked a commercial triumph for the singer giving her a US Top 20 R&B best-selling album as well as a US Top 30 R&B hit (and dance music charted single) with ‘Riding The Tiger.’
Originally the album – a follow-up to the 1981 album Can’t We Fall In Love Again – was due to be produced in its entirety by Philly hitmaker Thom Bell; Arista head Clive Davis asked Narada Michael Walden (already experiencing success with Arista artist Angela Bofill among others) to add three songs with Phyllis to complete the project which included the uptempo, atmospheric title track and the standout smooth ballad ‘Let Somebody Love You’ (co-written by Preston Glass).
Thom Bell’s production work on the six songs also provided Phyllis with a wonderful setting for her distinctive vocal style, a fusion of pop, soul and jazz. Highlights included brilliantly-orchestrated ‘Your Move, My Heart,’ the poignant ‘Falling Star,’ a slice of classic Philly soul via ‘We Should Be Lovers’ and the beautiful ‘Just Twenty Five Miles To Anywhere.’
Originally reissued in 2010 in the U.S. on CD, this new expanded edition includes the three bonus tracks, versions of ‘Riding The Tiger.’ Extensive notes by renowned U.S. writer A. Scott Galloway include quotes from Thom Bell, Narada Michael Walden and Preston Glass among others.
