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the legendary group Little Anthony & The Imperials, the 1973 LP ON A NEW STREET and the ultra-rare HOLD ON, which was withdrawn after just a few weeks after its initial release in 1975.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

Drama V: Expanded Edition
· The Detroit-based Dramatics (originally formed in 1962) had hit their stride by the time they recorded DRAMA V, their sixth overall album (and second for ABC Records) in 1975, a follow-up to LP, "The Dramatic Jackpot.”
· The quintet (which had experienced a number of personnel changes over the preceding years) had established themselves in the premier league of black male vocal groups thanks to early ‘70s hits such as the classics, ‘Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get’ and ‘In The Rain’ for Volt Records.
· Working with producer Don Davis, songwriter Tony Hester and key musician/songwriter Michael Henderson – the team who had been responsible for their breakthrough Volt hits – among others, The Dramatics (L.J. Reynolds, Willie Ford, Ron Banks, Larry "Squirrell” Demps and Lenny Mayes) scored a US Top 10 R&B charted album with DRAMA V, thanks to standout tracks such as ‘Just Shopping (Not Buying Anything),’ ‘Dramatic Theme/Treat Me Like A Man’ (both penned by Henderson) and ‘I Was The Life Of The Party.’

Billy Preston & Syreeta
  • Continuing to reissue classic original albums from the Motown catalogue, SoulMusic Records is very proud to present the worldwide CD debut of the self-titled 1981 album by BILLY PRESTON and SYREETA, an expanded edition with seven bonus tracks.
  • Billy Preston (through mid’-70s hits such as ‘Will It Go Round In Circles’ and ‘Nothing From Nothing’) and Syreeta (former wife of Stevie Wonder with four critically-acclaimed albums to her credit) were established as recording artists in their own right when, as Motown label-mates, they worked together on the 1979 soundtrack for the film, "Fast Break.” While the film itself made no impact, one track from the album, the beautiful ballad ‘With You I’m Born Again’ (included as a bonus track on this reissue along with an instrumental version of the song) became a Top 5 UK hit prompting Motown to release the single in the US where it reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 100 chart.
  • Encouraged by the single’s success, Syreeta’s 1980 self-titled LP (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013, SMCR-5094) featured two more duets with Billy, ‘One More Time For Love’ and ‘Please Stay,’ both included as bonus tracks on this release along with a non-album ‘B’ side ‘It Will Come In Time.’ The pair recorded BILLY PRESTON & SYREETA in 1981 working with producers including David Shire & Carol Connors, Ollie E. Brown and Michael Masser.
  • Bonus tracks include two versions of ‘Go For It’ (from "Fast Break”) and the reissue includes notes by UK Motown expert Sharon Davis with 2013 quotes from producer/songwriter Carol Connors.

Joy Ride: Expanded Edition
·       The follow up to the best-selling album "Drama V” (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013, SMCR-5104), the 1976 LP JOY RIDE proved to be even more successful for the Detroit-based Dramatics (originally formed in 1962), spawning a US Top 20 chart hit with ‘Finger Fever’ and two US Top 10 R&B hit singles (‘Be My Girl,’ #3 and ‘I Can’t Get Over You,’ #9) both of which became staple tunes in the group’s live performances.   
·       The quintet (by 1976, consisting of L.J. Reynolds, Willie Ford, Ron Banks, Larry "Squirrell” Demps and Lenny Mayes) had established themselves as hitmakers with  classics such as ‘Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get’ and ‘In The Rain’ for Volt Records. 
·       The three primary producers on JOY RIDE had been key players in the group’s previous success - Don Davis, songwriter Tony Hester and key musician/artist in his own right Michael Henderson.  In addition, two members of the group – Ron Banks and L.J. Reynolds - stepped up with each producing one track while longtime arranger Jimmy Roach wrote and produced another standout cut, ‘I Get Carried Away.’  Henderson’s ‘Be My Girl’ quickly became one of the album’s highlights (with his own version competing with the group’s for US airplay) propelling JOY RIDE into the US Top 20 R&B Albums chart. 
·       This SoulMusic Records’ reissue includes two bonus tracks, single versions of ‘Be My Girl’ and ‘Sundown Is Coming’ along with liner notes by renowned US writer Janine Coveney with 2013 quotes from Michael Henderson.
