• SoulMusic Records is very proud to present “Love Changes – The Anthology, 1972-83,” a first-of-its-kind 2-CD set by Mother’s Finest, considered the premier black rock-and-soul band of the ‘70s and ‘80s. This 37-track collection includes the entire 10-track 1983 LP, “One Mother To Another,” only ever released in Europe and making its worldwide CD debut. In addition, six tracks that were recorded for the group’s first RCA LP (in 1972) and only issued on a now out-of-print US CD in 2010 are also included here along with the team’s four charted singles, recorded for Epic Records during their seven-year tenure with the label, other standouts such as ‘Somebody To Love,’ (produced by Jimmy Iovine) along with ‘U Turn Me On’ and ‘Evolution’ from the 1981 LP, “Iron Age” and key cuts from the group’s three Epic studio albums such as ‘Give You All The Love (Inside Of Me)’ and a cover of the Motown classic, ‘Mickey’s Monkey.’
• Formed in 1970 originally by vocalists Glenn Murdock and Joyce Kennedy, the band expanded with a nucleus that included guitarist Gary ‘Mo’ Moore and bassist Jerry ‘Wyzard’ Seay.
• Establishing themselves instantly as a multi-racial band that crossed the musical boundaries of rock, pop and R&B, Mother’s Finest were as comfortable on shows with The Who, AC/DC and Black Sabbath as with Parliament/Funkadelic, The Commodores and Ohio Players. The group began achieving chart success in 1976 with ‘Dontcha Wanna Love Me,’ scoring their biggest US pop hit with ‘Baby Love’ and following it with the now-soul classic R&B chartmaker, ‘Love Changes’ (written and produced by Skip Scarborough) in 1978.
• Extensive liner notes by renowned US writer A. Scott Galloway including quotes from original members of the group including Glenn, Joyce, Gary and Jerry; and excellent mastering by Nick Robbins.
