Alicia / Alicia Again : Two Original Classic Soul Albums On One Cd - Alicia Myers

Alicia / Alicia Again : Two Original Classic Soul Albums On One Cd
The former lead singer with the R&B/dance music group One Way, Detroit-born Alicia Myers had a total of four albums released on MCA Records between 1981-84, experiencing varying degrees success with each.Produced by songwriter and One Way bass player Kevin McCord and multi-instrumentalist Al Perkins, the 1981 LP ALICIA – previously only available on CD in Japan – contained two tracks that have long been favourites among soul music collectors on both sides of the Atlantic: the gospel-influenced ‘I Want To Thank You’ (a US Top 40 R&B hit) and the rare groove gem, ‘If You Play Your Cards Right.’ The album spent six months on the US R&B charts.Released just eight months after her well-received MCA debut, ALICIA AGAIN – reissued for the first time worldwide with this 2012 SoulMusic.com Records two-on-one CD – was also produced by Al Perkins and was a family affair including a number of song penned by Alicia’s bassist brother Jackie and her siblings Evalyn and Aaron with Jackie on background vocals. Musicians included guitarist Bruce Nazarian (Johnnie Taylor, the Temptations, and Brides of Funkenstein); Parliament-Funkadelic percussionist Larry Fratangelo; and One Way keyboardist Corky Meadows.

Press:-

"Myers’ voice, with its huskiness, smoky timbre and strong gospel inflections is certainly distinctive though some of the material on her debut – helmed by fellow One Way cohorts, Al Perkins and Kevin McCord – is not equal to the strength of her impressive pipes.”

"This Mother’s Daughter is arguably Wilson’s strongest long player of the ‘70s. McDaniel’s production is superb and he expertly corrals the talents of session luminaries such as Chuck Rainey, Steve Gadd, Blue Mitchell, Dave Grusin and George Duke to bring some strong material to life.”
