Intuition - Angela Bofill

Intuition
After a seven-year, seven-album tenure with Arista Records (from 1978-1985) – which started with the release of her GRP album Angie (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2012, SMCR-5039) - renowned singer / songwriter Angela Bofill took a three-year hiatus from recording, moving to Northern California as a then-newly wed with a new born daughter. In 1988, she was eager to step back into the studio: the result was INTUITION, her sole album for Capitol Records.
The Bronx, New York-born artist worked with two primary producers for the project, musician and recording artist in his own right Norman Connors and Vincent Brantley, fresh from hits with such ’80s hitmakers as New Edition and Klymaxx. Bofill also produced two tracks herself, the self-penned composition ‘Love Overtime’ and ‘Fragile, Handle With Care,’ written by Robbie Nevil and Siedah Garrett.
The sessions with Connors included a remake of the 1978 Gino Vanelli hit ‘I Just Wanna Stop’ which became the album’s key single (reaching No. 11 on the U.S. R&B charts) as well as ‘For You And I,’ a standout ballad duet with Peabo Bryson. Highlights among Brantley’s tracks were ‘Love Is In Your Eyes’ (a personal Bofill favourite) and ‘Everlasting Love.’
This expanded edition of INTUITION (long out of print) includes two bonus track single edits and notes by renowned US writer Darnell Meyers-Johnson with quotes from Angela herself, Vincent Brantley, arranger Benjamin Wright and former Capitol executive Wayne Edwards.

Nona Hendryx

Released on 27/09/10. Nona Hendryx was one third of the pop/soul act LaBelle, and by far and away made the hippest solo records of any of the other members of the group, Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash.


After LaBelle called it quits in 1976. Hendryx released her self-titled debut record, which was an amazingly strong amalgam of soul and hard rock.

Wearing skin tight pants, black leather and brandishing a Bowie knife on the LP cover she announced her intentions loud and clear but neither record company or radio at that time knew what to do with this African American woman with a huge voice comfortable and capable of singing hard rock as well as soul music.


Nona worked with Talking Heads as back-up singer and fell in with a hip crowd of musicians and her association with David Byrne led to her working with Bill Laswell who helped her put together her second solo album. Entitled NONA it sparked greater interest in Nona s considerable talents and her solo career flourished.
