The Unmistakeable Sound of Independence since 1978 | Call to order: +44 (0)20 8996 3120
After being catapulted to fame by the BBC 1 series ‘The Big Time’ in 1980 and subsequently signing a record deal with EMI, Sheena Easton had undeniable success on both sides of the Atlantic. She scored hit after hit with songs such as ‘9 to 5′, ‘Modern Girl and For Your Eyes Only’, the title song for the James Bond movie of the same name. In 1981 Sheena won ‘Best Female Artist’ at the Rock & Pop awards as voted for by the British public, and a Grammy award in the US for ‘Best New Artist’. Sheena’s run of hits continued throughout the 80’s and included the steamy ‘Strut’; The controversial Prince penned track ‘Sugar Walls’; The upbeat pop song ‘Telephone (‘Long Distance Love Affair’); and duets with Kenny Rogers (‘We’ve Got Tonight’) and Prince (‘U Got The Look’). All of which were top ten hits in the US. Released in 1988 The Lover In Me was Sheena’s eighth studio album and has slightly harder urban edge, recorded at a time when Sheena was projecting a much sexier image. The new RNB sound of the album was accepted both by critics & the public with open arms, especially in the States where the album quickly turned gold. Big names in the R&B genre like Babyface & L.A Reid took the reigns on producing most of the album. The project also saw Prince (Joey Coco) & Jellybean lend a helping hands. Prince wrote two tracks for the release, he sultry 101 and the funky ‘Cool Love’, whilst Jellybean (who had previously remixed some of Madonna’s early hits), played drums and produced the danceable album track ‘If It’s Meant To Last’, A great album, beautifully repackaged, with a diverse range of songs from an artist in the prime of her career. Produced by Baby Face and LA Reid, with contributions from Prince and Jellybean.
