Love's On The Menu/Suite For The Single Girl - Jerry Butler

Love's On The Menu/Suite For The Single Girl
The legendary Jerry Butler (nicknamed ‘The Ice Man’ for both his ‘cool’ vocal style and his personal demeanour) was already well established as a successful recording artist in 1975 when he was approached by then-Motown president Ewart Abner, with whom he’d worked at the start of his recording career at Vee-Jay Records, to sign with the globally-renowned record company.
Chicago-based Jerry began immediately working on LOVE’S ON THE MENU with some of Motown’s in-house producers (including Hal Davis, Michael Sutton and Michael Smith), the team of Clayton Ivey & Terry Woodford; and hometown producers Michael Davis and Sam Brown. The album featured mostly original compositions (a number co-written by Butler) alongside covers of the Syreeta/Stevie Wonder song, ‘I’m Goin’ Left,’ Olivia Newton-John’s ‘I Honestly Love You,’ the Lionel Richie-penned, Commodores-recorded standout ‘This Is Your Life’ and the single, ‘The Devil In Mrs. Jones’ (a reference to the famous ‘70s adult movie of the same name.
Released in 1977, Jerry’s second Motown set SUITE FOR A SINGLE GIRL (which he co-produced with Homer Talbert and Paul Wilson) and was, as its’ title implied, a concept-driven album. Recorded in Chicago, the nine tracks were written by members of Jerry’s famed Music Workshop; standouts included the US R&B charted single ‘I Wanna Do It To You,’ ‘Only Pretty Girls’ and the almost-eight minute long opus, ‘Music In Her Dreams/Dream Music.’ Out of print on CD for decades, this SoulMusic Records’ reissue of two classic ‘70s Motown albums includes notes by renowned US writer Kevin ("Soul Ninja”) Goins.
