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.

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’.

Can't Take My Eyes Off You / Now I'm A Woman
Released in 1970, CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU continued a tradition that had been the staple of Nancy’s late ‘60s albums for Capitol Records by taking contemporary compositions of the day – such as ‘A Brand New Me’(a hit for Jerry Butler and Dusty Springfield), Leonard Cohen’s ‘Suzanne’ and ‘You Made Me So Very Happy’ (a hit for Brenda Holloway and for Blood, Sweat & Tears) – and giving them her own distinctive treatment. The title track – Nancy’s reading of the Frankie Valli & Four Seasons’ hit single – was originally on her 1969 LP "Hurt So Bad,” receiving such strong US airplay that it was also used for the 28th album she recorded since 1959.
Looking for a new approach, Nancy, longtime producer David Cavanaugh and Capitol Records hired the then-up-and-coming Philly-based production team of Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff to oversee her 1971 recording NOW I’M A WOMAN. Working with arrangers Thom Bell, Bobby Martin and Lenny Pakula, the LP featured a mix of R&B-oriented songs (some written specifically for Nancy) and contemporary hits of the day such as ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ and ‘Make It With You.’
Joining ALL IN LOVE IS FAIR/COME GET TO THIS (SMCR-5010) and THIS MOTHER’S DAUGHTER/I’VE NEVER BEEN TO ME (SMCR-5041) in the SoulMusic Records’ reissue of Nancy’s great recordings for Capitol, this expanded edition of CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU/NOW I’M A WOMAN (both making their worldwide CD debut) includes three bonus tracks from the Gamble & Huff sessions and stellar notes by renowned US writer A.Scott Galloway includes new quotes from Kenny Gamble and Bobby Martin.

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.
