The Buddah Years - Phyllis Hyman

The Buddah Years
Eighteen years after her passing in 1995, soulful songstress Phyllis Hyman remains one of most appreciated and loved singers of her time. SoulMusic Records pays tribute to the distinctive vocalist with a third release following the 2013 reissues of two of her Arista albums, 1979’s SOMEWHERE IN MY LIFETIME (SMCR-5092) and 1983’s GODDESS OF LOVE (SMCR-5095) with a collection that focuses on her recordings for Buddah Records (1977-1978).
Incorporating her self-titled 1977 LP debut (available on CD for the first time in its entirety in many years), THE BUDDAH YEARS also includes the dance-flavoured "You’re The One,” a track left off the original album, and three songs – ‘Soon Come Again,’ ‘Be Careful (How You Treat My Love)’ and ‘The Answer Is You’ - recorded for Buddah, originally released on the 1978 non-US LP, ‘Sing A Song’ and then included on her 1979 US Arista debut.
With production by Jerry Peters, John Davis and the team of Larry Alexander (her then-husband) and Sandy Torano, the "Phyllis Hyman album” showcased the songbird’s ability to fuse pop, soul and jazz. Highlights included a beautiful reinterpretation of "I Don’t Want To Lose You,” (originally recorded by The Spinners), songwriter / producer Thom Bell’s ‘Loving You, Losing You,’ (a Top 40 R&B and dance hit single) and the Hyman fan favourite, ‘The Night Bird Gets The Love.’
Liner notes by renowned U.S. writer Rashod Ollison include quotes from producer John Davis and arranger Onaje Allan Gumbs.

Gun
Race With The Devil, reached the UK Top Ten in December 1968, it catapulted power trio the Gun from the bowels of the London underground club circuit to the forefront of the British pop scene. Released a couple of months later, the group s self-titled debut album boasted an equally dazzling, idiosyncratic combination of hard rock ferocity and striking orchestral arrangements, and it can now be seen as a major stepping stone in the gradual metamorphosis of late 60s psychedelic rock into what would become known as heavy metal. This newly re-mastered reissue features contemporaneous single releases, rare photos and fresh quotes from founder member Paul Gurvitz.

Inner Life
Inner Life was an American studio project group led by Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael. After crossing paths in their working circles, Greg Carmichael enlisted the vocal prowess of an established backing singer by the name of Jocelyn Brown and asked her to sing co-lead on a song that would feature the amazing talent of the New York philharmonic orchestra and set dancefloors alight with the Chic-influenced disco romp, Keep On Jumping which sat itself comfortably atop the Billboard Disco Chart.
On the back of this success Jocelyn joined forces with Carmichael and Adams along with Leroy Burgess and backed them with the unmistakably fantastic Salsoul Orchestra. The result was 3 albums that have gone on to become disco dance classics. BBR presents to you Inner Life – Inner Life. Inner Life was released in 1981 on the legendary Salsoul Records and featured production mastery by Inner Life’s creators, Greg Carmichael and Patrick Adams.
Recorded at the historic Sigma Sound Studios, Inner Life presented two singles offerings the first of which was a rendition of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s 1967 Motown hit Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and daunting a task as it may have been for Brown, she did the track wonderful justice with her incredibly natural and soulful vocal taking the single all the way to #20 on the US Disco Chart. Other notable tracks include the second single (Knock Out) Let’s Go Another Round and the more laid back groover Make It Last Forever. There are further remixes by the legendary John Morales and Larry Levan.
BBR is very excited to announce the release of Inner Life – Inner Life. This fully expanded remaster comes complete with extensive liner notes featuring an interview with Jocelyn Brown and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all Soul, Funk, Disco and R&B fans out there!
