Goddess Of Love - Phyllis Hyman

Goddess Of Love
The second reissue from the Arista catalogue of much-loved and much-missed songstress Phyllis Hyman (following the April 2013 release of SOMEWHERE IN MY LIFETIME, SMCR-5092), GODDESS OF LOVE marked a commercial triumph for the singer giving her a US Top 20 R&B best-selling album as well as a US Top 30 R&B hit (and dance music charted single) with ‘Riding The Tiger.’
Originally the album – a follow-up to the 1981 album Can’t We Fall In Love Again – was due to be produced in its entirety by Philly hitmaker Thom Bell; Arista head Clive Davis asked Narada Michael Walden (already experiencing success with Arista artist Angela Bofill among others) to add three songs with Phyllis to complete the project which included the uptempo, atmospheric title track and the standout smooth ballad ‘Let Somebody Love You’ (co-written by Preston Glass).
Thom Bell’s production work on the six songs also provided Phyllis with a wonderful setting for her distinctive vocal style, a fusion of pop, soul and jazz. Highlights included brilliantly-orchestrated ‘Your Move, My Heart,’ the poignant ‘Falling Star,’ a slice of classic Philly soul via ‘We Should Be Lovers’ and the beautiful ‘Just Twenty Five Miles To Anywhere.’
Originally reissued in 2010 in the U.S. on CD, this new expanded edition includes the three bonus tracks, versions of ‘Riding The Tiger.’ Extensive notes by renowned U.S. writer A. Scott Galloway include quotes from Thom Bell, Narada Michael Walden and Preston Glass among others.

Keep You Satisfied / Forbidden Lover 2CD
Song stylist Nancy Wilson enjoyed a twenty-year tenure with Capitol Records (1959-79) which established her as a consistent fixture on the music scene, with over thirty albums and pop/R&B hits including ‘How Glad I Am,’ ‘Guess Who I Saw Today’ and 'You’re As Right As Rain’ (from the two-on-one 2010 SoulMusic Records’ reissue of ALL IN LOVE IS FAIR and COME GET TO THIS, SMCR-25010).
Between 1982-84, Nancy recorded a series of albums in Japan working with producer Kiyoshi Itoh and arranger Masahiko Satoh; after "The Two Of Us,” a successful album for Columbia Records in the U.S. with Ramsey Lewis, Nancy signed with the label.
For 1985’s KEEP YOU SATISFIED, Nancy reunited with Itoh and Satoh for sessions in Japan; the result was a Top 20 Jazz Album that included her take on the George Michael hit of the day, the now-classic ‘Careless Whisper’ and a striking cover of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Just To Keep You Satisfied.’
Working with the same producer and arranger, the follow-up album, 1986’s FORBIDDEN LOVER was recorded in Los Angeles; the title track - a soulful duet with singer Carl Anderson - received airplay at R&B stations in the U.S., giving Nancy her first best-selling album (#8 on Billboard’s Jazz charts). Other key cuts include a second duet with Anderson (‘Too Good To Be True’) and a superlative version of Leon Russell’s ‘A Song For You.’
