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.

Bitter Sweet
King, led by later disc jockey Paul King, were among the biggest and brightest stars of the vibrant 80s British pop scene. They grew out of the Reluctant Stereotypes, a highly regarded but underachieving Coventry band, with musicians including former Members' drummer Adrian Lilywhite. They settled on a distinctive image - multi-coloured Doc Martens, with King himself resplendent in bright suits and cockatoo hair. They achieved immediate success with the UK number 2 chart hit 'Love And Pride' (included here in remixed form). This, their second album from 1985, which also includes the top ten hit 'Alone Without You', as well as a further hit, 'Torture', and the delicate ballad 'The Taste Of Your Tears'. This was to be their final album before Paul embarked on a solo career. As well as numerous bonus tracks never released before on CD, this package includes exclusive liner notes written by long-serving Coventry journalist Pete Chambers, who has followed the band's career for many years. Our Price: £9.95

I've Got The Cure
By 1984, powerhouse vocalist Stephanie Mills had achieved consistent hit-making status in the U.S. thanks to nine albums and a slew of hit singles that had established the former Broadway star of ‘The Wiz’ as a potent and dynamic recording artist and live performer.
Released in September 1984, I’VE GOT THE CURE, Stephanie’s third (and final) album for Casablanca Records became a best-seller thanks to now-classic soul and dance smash and club favourite, ‘The Medicine Song’ which became a Top 30 UK hit and a Top 10 US R&B hit.
Produced by master musician and funk meister George Duke with additional production by David ‘Hawk’ Wolinski (formerly of the group Rufus), I’VE GOT THE CURE fused the techno-funk rhythms of the day with Stephanie’s high-energy vocals.
This SoulMusic Records’ expanded edition includes three bonus tracks including a six-minute-plus Mark Berry 12” mix of ‘The Medicine Song.’ Other standouts on the album (a Top 10 R&B album in the US) include ‘Edge Of The Razor,’ ‘Rough Trade’ and the highlight ballads ‘Give It Half A Chance’ and ‘Everlasting Love.’
Includes notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring with quotes from producer George Duke.
