Music On My Mind / Life, Love & Harmony 2CD - Nancy Wilson

Music On My Mind / Life, Love & Harmony 2CD
The latest in the series of great reissues by SoulMusic Records of the late ‘60s, ‘70s and early ‘80s of Capitol Records’ albums by the legendary Nancy Wilson, the 2-CD combining 1978’s MUSIC ON MY MIND and the 1979 follow-up LIFE, LOVE & HARMONY is not only a welcome addition but finally brings to compact disc two albums that Nancy’s fans worldwide have long been requesting for reissue.
Produced by Los Angeles-based producer, composer and conducted Clarence MacDonald, MUSIC ON MY MIND featured mostly songs written specifically for Nancy by writers that included MacDonald, Deniece Williams, Lani Groves and Fritz Baskett. Recorded live at Capitol Records with a full complement of rhythm, strings, horns and background vocalists, the well-received album was both fitting for the times and for the pioneering songstress, then celebrating her 25th year as a recording artist at Capitol.
The 1979 set LIFE, LOVE & HARMONY was conceived, produced and written by the team of Larry Farrow (Nancy’s then-musical director) and Carolyn Johns and featured eight of nine compositions penned with Nancy in mind. Standouts included the now-classic jazz-flavoured track ‘Sunshine,’ the dance-oriented title track and ballads ‘Open Up Your Heart And Take Me In’ and ‘Wrapped Up In The Comfort Of Your Love.’ This expanded edition includes two singles from the LP.
Outstanding liner notes by renowned U.S. writer A. Scott Galloway include quotes from producers of both albums and others involved with the sessions.

Patrice
Los Angeles-born multi-faceted musician, songwriter, singer, arranger and producer Patrice Rushen had recorded three acclaimed and well-received albums for the jazz label Prestige Records during her tenure with the company before signing a 1977 contract with Elektra Records.

Patrice kicked off her successful association with the label with the 1978 album PATRICE, her first breakthrough into the U.S. mainstream market, reaching No. 5 on the Jazz Albums and No, 27 on the R&B Albums charts, paving the way for Patrice to achieve international success with subsequent Elektra albums. The funky single ‘Hang It Up’ became her first Top 20 R&B hit single.

All star sessions for PATRICE included a dazzling array of famed musicians including Earth Wind & Fire guitarist Al McKay, drummer James Gadson, bassists Freddie Washington and Abraham Laboriel, trumpeter Jerry Hey, percussionists Bill Summers and Paulinho DaCosta, with background vocals by Syreeta Wright, Sheree Brown, Jim Gilstrap and the Waters family. Patrice wrote or co-wrote most of the tracks on this stellar ten-track set.
In a departure from her earlier recordings, her Elektra debut focused more on Patrice’s soulful vocals: standouts on PATRICE include the ballad ‘Didn’t You Know,’ the upbeat ‘Changes (In Your Life),’ the lilting ‘Cha-Cha’ and the groove-licious ‘It’s Just A Natural Thing.’

PATRICE has been out of print on CD for a number of years and is being reissued as part of SoulMusic Records’ jazz/funk series. The notes by respected writer Jeff Lorez include 2012 quotes from Patrice on the impact of her first major international label release.

Press:-

‘Patrice was her Elektra debt on 1978 and blends scintillating keyboard-d jazz-funk workouts with soulful and introspective ballads’.

Aretha
After 6 years at Columbia, Aretha Franklin signed with Atlantic Records in 1967 and unleashed a stunning array of hit singles during the mid-sixties to the mid- seventies including Respect, Chain Of Fools, Spanish Harlem and Until You Come Back To Me (That’s What I’m Going To Do).
After Aretha’s tenure with Atlantic had lost its direction her career was in need of a new focus and Clive Davis knew that he could restore her status to that of the late sixties and early seventies and set her to work with producers Chuck Jackson and Arif Mardin.
The work paid off quickly with the album’s first single UNITED TOGETHER returning Aretha to the top 3 of the R&B chart. It was her greatest showing on this chart since 1977.
The second single was a cover of the Doobie Brothers WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES which gave her another top 20 R&B hit and also her first appearance in the UK top 50 since 1974. The final single from ARETHA, COME TO ME, also made an appearance in the R&B top 40.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks, ARETHA is a must for all Soul and Funk fans out there!
