The long-awaited CD reissue of La Toya Jackson’s 1981 sophomore album ‘My Special Love’ is out on Cherry Pop this week, including six additional long-unavailable bonus tracks! It’s the essential collector’s item for all Jackson fans and completists.
This Cherry Pop treasure includes the singles ‘Stay The Night’ (co-written by Billy Ocean), ‘I Don’t Want You To Go’ (co-written by Earth Wind & Fire hit maker Allee Willis) and top 20 US disco hit ‘If You Feel The Funk’.
The breezy, funk-filled album features collaborations with sister Janet (co-writer and backing vocals on rare groove classic ‘Camp Kuchi Kaiai’) and brother Randy Jackson (*producer and duet partner on ‘Giving You Up’).
