Singer & actress Dee Dee Bridgewater recorded four albums for the Warner Brothers group of labels between 1976 and 1980, one for Atlantic and three for Elektra; for the very first time Robinsongs have combined these Albums on a 4 on 2 CD collection.

• “Dee Dee Bridgewater” the Atlantic album kicks the package off and features ‘Going Through The Motions’ and both the fast & ballad versions of ‘My Prayer’, which were released as singles. The album “Just Family” completes the first disc and this Stanley Clarke produced album featured a who’s who in the Jazz Funk world, including George Duke, Harvey Mason, Ronnie Foster and Chick Corea to name but a few. Stanley Clarke also played bass on selected tracks. The “Just Family” album includes ‘Sweet Rain’ and ‘Just Family’, both released as singles and a fantastic version of Elton John’s ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’.

• Disc Two kicks off with the George Duke produced “Bad For Me” album, and the title track was also a Billboard Top 40 R&B hit. As per previous albums, it also featured some amazing players such as Sheila E on percussion, Greg Phillinganes on keyboards, Alphonso Johnson on bass and Roland Bautista of Earth Wind & Fire fame on guitar.

• Completing Disc Two is the self-titled Elektra album which was produced by Bell & James and Thom Bell. This 1980 album features the single ‘One In A Million (Guy)’ and the club classic ‘Lonely Disco Dancer’.

• With sleeve notes from Lois Wilson, this package really delivers to lovers of great soul music.
