As part of its best-selling anthology series, SoulMusic Records is very proud to present “Don’t Let It Go To Your Head,” a sumptuous 2-CD by the inimitable Jean Carne, one of the most consistently popular international song stylists in the world of soul-n-jazz.

Focused on her four-album tenure with Philadelphia International Records (1976-1981), this musically satisfying collection (compiled by SoulMusic.com founder David Nathan, who has been interviewing the soulful songstresssince 1977 and provided stellar liner notes with extensive quotes from a 2018 interview with Jean herself) includes Jean’s much-loved dance classics, the set’s title cut and 12”
single versions of the perennial ‘Was That All It Was’ and ‘What’s On Your Mind’ (making its worldwide CD debut).

In addition to key PIR album cuts, standouts include Jean’s unforgettable full version of The Spinners’ classic ‘Love Don’t Love Nobody’, the Eddie Levert-produced ‘My Love Don’t Come Easy’, and essential staples of Jean’s live repertoire (‘If You Wanna Go Back’, ‘Free Love’ and ‘We Got Some Catchin’ Up To Do’).

Other highlights include Jean’s take on the Philly classic ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’ (from Jean’s sole 1982 Motown set along with her version of Minnie Riperton’s ‘Completeness’); a plethora of guest duets – the US top 20 R&B hits ‘I’m Back For More’ (with Al Johnson) and the timeless ‘Valentine Love’ (with Michael Henderson) – alongside tracks with Dexter Wansel, Norman Connors, Roy
Ayers and Grover Washington, Jr.

Georgia-born Jean’s recording career got its start on the first couple of albums by Earth, Wind & Fire and three famed early ‘70s jazz LPs with (ex-husband) Doug Carn. The fiveoctave vocalist began her association with drummer Norman Connors in 1974 and by the early ‘80s, Jean’s first performances in the UK created a love affair with European audiences that continues to this day.

With first-class mastering by Nick Robbins and great artwork by Roger Williams, “Don’t Let It Go To Your Head – The Anthology” is a remarkable testament to the timeless artistry of this soulful supernova
