RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2014

From singing in church in Los Angeles to appearing on the popular ‘70s U.S. TV talent programme, ‘The Gong Show,’ Cheryl Lynn’s vocal delivery, style and skills had long been evident so when she hit the international music scene in 1978, it was no surprise that she found favour with audiences the world over.

The summer of that year, her co-penned ‘Got To Be Real,’ acknowledged now as a timeless classic that has been used in countless movies, television ad campaigns, sampled and covered, could be heard literally across the globe from London to New York, Paris to Tokyo, giving the soulful singer an anthem that has continued to bring dancers to their feet everywhere. The single reached No. 1 on the U.S. R&B charts and No. 23 on the Hot 100.

Cheryl’s self-titled debut album also included another dance anthem, ‘Star Love’ as well as a cover of ‘Come In From The Rain’ (a 1977 hit for Captain & Tennille) and four more songs that Cheryl wrote or co-wrote. The album was certified gold, reaching No. 5 on the U.S. R&B and No. 23 on Top 200 Albums’ charts.

Edited from the original essay by renowned U.S. writer A. Scott Galloway, the notes include quotes from Cheryl, co-producer David Paich (of Toto fame) and famed drummer James Gadson.
