Born To Love - Peabo Bryson & Roberta Flack

Born To Love
When Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack teamed up in 1983 to record the Capitol album BORN TO LOVE, the pair had already experienced success as a duo thanks to the 1980 LP, Live & More (a Top 10 R&B best-selling album). By the time they headed into the studio to cut BORN TO LOVE, Bryson was six years into his recording career and had established himself as one of the premier black male vocalists of the day; Flack was already considered an internationally-renowned artist thanks to classic recordings such as ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ and ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song.’
With tracks produced by songwriters Michael Masser, Bob Crewe and Bryson himself, BORN TO LOVE achieved gold status in the US as well as becoming both artists’ highest-charting international success. The impact of the now-classic single, ‘Tonight, I Celebrate My Love’ (co-written by Masser, then known for songs such as Diana Ross’ ‘Touch Me In The Morning’ and Natalie Cole’s ‘Someone That I Used To Love’ and Gerry Goffin) was global, reaching No. 2 on the UK charts, No. 10 in Australia, No. 4 in Canada and No. 16 in the US).
The album also included two other charted singles, ‘Maybe’ and ‘You’re Looking Like Love To Me’ while ‘Heaven Above Me’ got radio and club play in the UK.
This 2013 expanded edition of BORN TO LOVE includes three bonus tracks along with liner notes by Billboard Senior Editor, Gail Mitchell with new quotes from Roberta Flack.

The Many Sides Of Gene Pitney Only / Love Can Break A Heart
GENE PITNEY was one of the most prolific and successful international artists of the 1960s, releasing some twenty-five albums and around thirty-five singles. However, over the decades Gene's back catalogue was subject to some fairly cavalier repackaging.

PRESS:-

"The acrobatic voice from Rockville’s ‘62/’63 LP’s. The first includes Town Without Pity; the second sounds expensive”

GENE PITNEY was one of the most prolific and successful international artists of the 1960s, releasing some twenty-five albums (plus a further dozen or so Greatest Hits sets) and around thirty-five singles. However, over the decades - notably during the vinyl/cassette era - Gene s back catalogue was subject to some fairly cavalier repackaging, often with scant attention to content, chronology or sound quality.

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.

· These two albums from the bands mid-period, contain some of their finest work and are hard to get on CD. The albums have been re-mastered and contain new liner notes from Malcolm Dome and enhanced artwork
