OCTOBER & NOVEMBER RELEASES ON SOUL MUSIC RECORDS!
28 September 2012
SoulMusic Records is exceptionally excited about our set of
soulful releases for October! Culled together under as our
‘Motown-themed Month,’ the five artists represented all recorded for the
world-renowned music label at some point during their careers and two of our
reissues - by SYREETA and THELMA HOUSTON - are in fact Motown masters
drawn from the vaults of this rich catalogue!
We have a 2-CD set from MARY WELLS ("The Complete 20th
Century Fox Recordings”), the first material she recorded after leaving Motown
in 1964 and including for the first time ever on compact disc her rare "Love
Songs To The Beatles” album; from SYREETA, the former wife of Stevie Wonder,
there’s "One To One” which includes production by the brilliant Leon Ware
as well as a contribution from Stevie via "Harmour Love”; THELMA HOUSTON
is represented with the (much-anticipated by soul music and Motown fans
worldwide) reissue of her very first recordings for Motown ("The MoWest
Album”), an expanded edition that encompasses all of her material released on
the imprint that was created when Motown moved to California in 1972; and
then two great ‘70s albums recorded by THE MIRACLES (with Billy Griffin as lead
singer following Smokey Robinson’s departure from the group) for Columbia
Records both making their CD debut – "Love Crazy,” an expanded edition
featuring the controversial track, "Spy For Brotherhood” and "The Miracles,”
an ultra-rare LP that was only originally released in The Netherlands.
In November, we keep things rolling with releases from NANCY
WILSON (our catalogue best-selling artist) – two Columbia albums, "Keep You Satisfied”
and "Forbidden Lover”; a much-treasured classic jazz/funk album from THE
BRECKER BROTHERS BAND, "Back To Back,” an expanded edition; and another
brilliant reissue from master musician and recording artist GEORGE DUKE, his
much-heralded "A Brazilian Love Affair,” an expanded edition.
And just to whet the appetite 2013 brings reissues from PATTI
AUSTIN, RONNIE LAWS, ROBERTA FLACK & PEABO BRYSON, G.C. CAMERON, GWEN
GUTHRIE, FREDA PAYNE, STEPHANIE MILLS and more! Ain’t no stoppin’
