Just For You/All Night Music - McCrarys

Just For You/All Night Music
· Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, the brother-and-sister group The McCrarys began their career in the gospel field recording their first LP in 1972. However, it was a move into secular music in 1978 that brought the team national prominence in the US when their debut album for Portrait Records, "Loving Is Living” achieved success, in part due to the Top 10 R&B hit, ‘You’ which featured one of their champions, Stevie Wonder. After their label follow-up LP, "On The Other Side,” the group signed a new deal with Capitol Records in 1980.
· Consisting of sisters Charity and Linda and brothers Alfred, Howard and Sam, The McCrarys worked with producer/musician Patrick Henderson (whose roots were also in the gospel field). With seven tracks credited to various members of the group as songwriters, JUST FOR YOU included the key cut, ‘Any Ol’ Sunday’ which was recorded by Chaka Khan in 1981.
· Teamed with former member of The Crusaders, Wayne Henderson (producer of Ronnie Laws, Esther Phillips, Side Effect and Pleasure among others), the group’s second Capitol LP, ALL NIGHT MUSIC fared better. The track, ‘Love On A Summer Night’ became a Top 100 US R&B hit single and a constant favourite – and now classic - in the UK with ‘smooth groove’fans.
· Apart from a limited Japanese pressing of "All Night Music”, both albums are making their worldwide CD debut with this SoulMusic Records reissue, which includes notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring with 2013 quotes from members of the group.

On A New Street / Hold On 2CD
SoulMusic Records is extremely proud to reissue two much-sought after albums by the legendary group Little Anthony & The Imperials, the 1973 LP ON A NEW STREET and the ultra-rare HOLD ON, which was withdrawn after just a few weeks after its initial release in 1975.
Anthony and The Imperials were already established as hitmakers (thanks to classic recordings such as ‘Goin’ Out Of My Head,’ ‘Hurt So Bad,’ and ‘Tears On My Pillow’) by the time they signed with Avco Records. For their debut album for the label, the quartet chose to work with two producers, Teddy Randazzo (with whom they’d enjoyed their mid-60’s hits and Thom Bell (enjoying success with The Delfonics and just beginning his hit-filled association with The Stylistics). With its soulful sophistication, ON A NEW STREET benefited from the superb arrangements and production of both Randazzo and Bell and included the Top 30 R&B hit, ‘I’m Falling In Love With You.’
For HOLD ON, their second Avco album, the team worked with two of Thom Bell’s then-proteges, his brother (the late) Tony Bell and future hitmaker in his own right, Phil Hurtt, both of whom co-wrote all nine tracks for the project. The single, ‘Hold On (Just A Little Bit Longer)’ achieved some chart success and has since become a much-sought after Philly ‘70s classic particularly among UK soul music buyers.
Extensive notes for this 2-CD set by renowned US writer Kevin Goins include a new 2013 interview with Anthony Gourdine along with quotes from producer Phil Hurtt and lyricist Victoria Pike among others.

Release Date: 13/05/2013

Thelma & Jerry/Two To One: Expanded Edition
·       Continuing to reissue classic original albums from the Motown catalogue, SoulMusic Records is very proud to present the worldwide reissue debut* of two albums by THELMA HOUSTON and JERRY BUTLER on one CD, an expanded edition with one bonus track. (* "Thelma & Jerry” was issued on CD on US Motown in 1992). 
·        By 1977 when they began recording together, Thelma Houston was enjoying her first wave of across-the-board international success with her now-classic cover of Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes’ ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’; a year earlier, established hitmaker Jerry Butler had signed with Motown and released his label debut "Love’s On The Menu” (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013 along with his second Motown LP, "Suite For A Single Girl,” SMCR-25086).  ·       With production by Butler himself and Homer Talbert and Motown hitmaker Hal Davis and Michael B. Sutton, THELMA & JERRY (a US Top 20 R&B album) included covers of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Joy Inside My Tears’;  a medley of Chicago’s ‘If You Leave Me Now’ with The Bee Gees’ ‘Love So Right’; and a Top 100 R&B charted single, ‘It’s A Lifetime Thing’ (the flipside of which "Kiss Me Now” is included on this CD reissue as a bonus track). 
·       The follow-up 1978 LP TWO TO ONE consisted of just two Houston-Butler duets (left over from sessions for the previous album) and three solo tracks from each performer.  
·       Notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring include 2013 quotes from Thelma Houston.
