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.

Special Things
The Pointer Sisters were one of the most successful female groups the music industry has seen with 13 top 20 singles and 8 top 40 albums shared between the US and UK pop charts. In 1980 the Pointer Sisters released Special Things, their third album under the production genius of Richard Perry, launching The Pointer Sisters into the 80s and their most commercially successful period. Special Things featured the gold selling single HE'S SO SHY which returned the group to R&B Top Ten as well as soaring all the way to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, earning them a Grammy nomination in the process. Also included are the popular Could I Be Dreaming which peaked at #22 on the R&B chart as well as becoming a Club hit alongside the Disco classic We’ve Got The Power.

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. BBR introduces this newly re-mastered edition of Special Things accompanied by a non-album B-Side and extensive liner notes featuring exclusive interviews with Ruth and Anita Pointer.

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.
