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.

The album made #19 Soul and #34 Pop in 1980 and features contributions from Burt Bacharach on keyboards alongside Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Motown session musician, James Jamerson on bass whose discography reads as a who‘s who of 60s and 70s soul.

Duffy
60's blues fusion musician, writer and singer Duffy Power finally achieved a stand alone LP release in 1973 when an eponymous album hit the racks on the GSF label.

Produced by Adrian Millar, as one of several on going projects in a Production deal set up with partner Andrew Loog Oldham, the Duffy Power LP became to date the only purpose recorded album Duffy has had released in his career.

For this fine collection of Duffy originals Millar brought in a stellar cast of musicians, plus backing singers Dana Gillespie, Pam McKenna, Alexis Korner, and Del Newman for string arrangements, to help bring the songs to life.

The album was well received and Millar continued to be a fan of Duffy's songs, offering a second LP. Sessions were begun with a regular backing band called CWT ( see also the RATS (RPM 322) where they backed singer / songwriter David Kubinec). Sadly only three tracks survive today as yet again another Duffy album project remained on the shelf.

As a follow up to the two successful Anthologies of Duffy's 60's recordings RPM is proud to make available again for the first time in 30 years, and for the first time on CD, the 1973 LP Duffy Power, plus the three recordings from the aborted follow up album. The package includes very personal song by song annotation from Duffy, and more unseen photos from Duffy's archive.
