Somewhere In My Lifetime - Phyllis Hyman

Somewhere In My Lifetime
The much-loved and much-missed songstress Phyllis Hyman’s debut album for Arista Records, 1979’s SOMEWHERE IN MY LIFETIME was an amalgam of six tracks from Sing A Song, her second LP for Buddah Records and four new tracks she recorded after Buddah became defunct and was bought by Arista.
With production by T. Life, her then-husband Larry Alexander and renowned songwriter Skip Scarborough and Arista labelmate Barry Manilow (responsible with Ron Dante for the title track), SOMEWHERE IN MY LIFETIME featured major players such as Onaje Allen Gumbs, Herbie Hancock, Bob Babbitt, Azar Lawrence, Monty Alexander and Will Lee. The album reached No. 15 on the U.S. R&B charts and spawned two charted singles, the title cut which became Phyllis’ first Top 20 R&B hit and a cover of pop rock group Exile’s ‘Kiss You All Over,’ a dance music/club hit.
Originally reissued in 2010 in the U.S. on CD, this new expanded edition includes the two bonus tracks featured on that reissue - a nine-minute version of ‘So Strange’ and 12”mix of ‘Kiss You All Over’ as well as the remaining three tracks left from the Sing A Song LP (‘Sweet Music,’ ‘Love Is Free’ and the title track), thus incorporating Phyllis’ long out-of-print second Buddah album in its’ entirety.
Notes by renowned U.S. writer A. Scott Galloway include quotes from producer T. Life, bassist Will Lee and pianist Monty Alexander.

Cardiac Arrest & We All Know Who We Are
Released on 21/06/10. In the world of funk, Cameo stand as one of the precious stones in the crown. A band that had the ability to take funk rhythms, make them danceable yet also retain a high degree of musicianship.

Their excellent debut album, 1977s Cardiac Arrest, was highlighted by four singles. Three of those hit the Billboard R&B chart. 1978 saw the release of their second and third albums. The second title of our two on one CD is We All Know Who We Are , which saw Cameo becoming increasingly successful.

This got into the top 60 on the mainstream chart and number 15 on the R&B countdown.

With songs like C on The Funk , Cameo were really finding their range and establishing a unique niche.

Livin' In The New Wave
André Cymone’s childhood friend and one-time bandmate, Prince, once described him as being heaven sent. Having grown up together and lived together, Cymone played bass for Prince’s backing band in the days before it was called The Revolution. But by 1981 he went solo, signing with Columbia Records and launching a career as a New Wave/Funk artist.
LIVIN’ IN THE NEW WAVE was Cymone’s debut solo LP in 1982 and see’s him not only writing but also producing all the songs on this groundbreaking album. It laid the groundwork for his hit single, The Dance Electric, as well as further production work most notably with future wife Jody Watley. He went on to produce her two R&B #1 tracks Looking For A New Love and Real Love.
LIVIN’ IN THE NEW WAVE was the debut single from the album and KELLY’S EYES was the follow up. Both singles made headway on the US R&B charts in 1982 and began building a strong fan base that remains to this day.

Survivin' in the 80's
His childhood friend and one-time bandmate, Prince, once described Andre Cymone as being heaven sent. Having grown up together and lived together, Cymone played bass for Prince’s backing band in the days before it was called The Revolution. By 1981, relations between Prince and Cymone had broken down and he went solo, signing with Columbia Records and launching a career as a New Wave/Funk artist.
SURVIVIN’ IN THE 80’S was Andre’s second solo album and gained him the #31 spot on the R&B charts shortly after it’s release on Columbia Records in 1983. Not only did Andre write all the songs on SURVIVIN’ IN THE 80’S, it was produced and mixed by him too. He is also responsible for half of the drumming and synthesizers that you’ll hear on this amazing album.
SURVIVIN’ IN THE 80’S laid the groundwork for his hit Dance Electric as well as further production work most notably with future wife Jody Watley. He went on to produce her two R&B #1 tracks Looking For A New Love and Real Love.
MAKE ME WANNA DANCE was the first single from SURVIVIN’ IN THE 80’S and peaked at R&B #37 shortly followed by the title track.
