Smith LP M. And seeing how the engineers worked and how they produced the sounds, all of that was really interesting to me. Though she was a precocious performer, hers is a talent that came to full bloom on Here Is Barbara Lynn , her album produced by Huey P. Meaux and originally released on Atlantic Records. Yet the introduction to her world—now reissued by Light In The Attic—largely proved to be her swansong.
It is going to be a wild, first time thing for me, like going back in time. But Funky Christmas actually inhabits two traditions. All six of the acts represented on it had issued their first Cotillion LPs earlier in and Funky Christmas was a way to keep those acts in the public eye.
The set itself is a moving audio feast, a platter heaped high with holiday standards eight , newly composed Christmas songs four , ballads and uptempo cuts, spirited vocal showcases and groovalicious instrumentals.
The key cuts, or the elephant in the room, are the brace of tunes from Luther Vandross, then just 25 and fronting his namesake quintet it was signed to Cotillion as Luther , which had made its debut only weeks earlier.
Due to a quirk in licensing, this collection is about the only place you can find any recordings by Luther, and their two songs are the clear highlight of the collection. CD debut, with notes by Gene Sculatti and added photos. Have yourself a Funky Christmas! OMG, I would love this! I have an original ten-track edition on CD, a handful of singles, and other versions and levels of remastering on various compilations.
Interesting thing though some of the early pressings of the VINYL back in had 3 other girls doing vocals on some tracks, the late Sandee was one of them. I don't think that the expanded cd will have that original stuff, sadly, because it is interesting to see the change and why Gioia and jeanette and Ann took this album mainstream. Also interesting and not sure if people know, The Girls did take their managers Martinee being part of it, to court to fight him to USE the name Expose while touring, though Martinee wrote most of the hits and all of the first record, managed them, produced them, when the 3 got together again and toured they were sued for the name, they went to court and WON!
I'm planning to get this when it's released since I've always liked this album. Seeing that the expanded rerelease will include the original version, it's interesting comparing that version to to the one done by the classic lineup.
You must not look at these reissue threads. Lisa's albums were mentioned in a previous one, maybe the last one. I have the recently released Lisa Stansfield box set. It is the creme de la creme of box sets! Still quite expensive but well worth the money. Donna had enough music videos from these albums for them to have included a DVD with the box set, along with the A Hot Summer's Night concert from Yeah, I totally missed that one!
Definately the set that was released last month. I'm still making my way through all the CDs. I haven't even started the DVDs yet! Numbered, Limited Edition! Very Limited Quantities! Only 1, Numbered Copies Available! This recording has been mastered by the K2 HD format of bit kHz, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats!
Older was the very first album released by DreamWorks Records. Michael dedicated three years straight in the recording of Older, and the album found him exploring new musical territories in a more serious fashion compared to his previous work. At the time of release, the album was a huge commercial hit, particularly in Europe.
In the UK, the album was particularly notable for producing six Top Three hit singles in a two-year span, creating a record still unsurpassed. To date, Older has sold around 15 million copies worldwide. The album has been described by Allmusic and Rolling Stone as a commercial comeback album for Guy after limited recording for the previous 10 years. Being a part time dj whose fave musical period is the decade between and one can dig forever in a bottomless pit of great danceable uptempo tunes.
Even after years and years of bringing new and exciting tunes to light there still are new finds every day who fill the dancefloors around the world for fans young and old. Of course, when filling the box for a dj night one selects the fast and highly danceable stuff and maybe a few slower tunes to send people home in the morning.
The Slow Grind Fever series was created after stumbling over a clubnight in Australia via the internet: "Melbourne's only slow dance party, where they play the slowest, spookiest, sweetest records they can find, and folks dance real slow in a haze of smoke and dim red light.

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Freedom Highway Complete - Recorded Live at Chicago's New Nazareth Church , a newly remixed, remastered and expanded edition of the live concert masterpiece recorded by the Staple Singers in April in support and celebration of that year's historic civil rights marches from Montgomery to Selma, Alabama.

Featuring previously unreleased performances, the spiritually uplifting service, "Pops" Staples' Intro and Outro and more, Freedom Highway Complete puts the listener right in the church, with the Staple Singers, the choir, the band, and the congregation for a once-in-a-lifetime event.
An essential musical, cultural and historic document, Freedom Highway Complete presents the full concert and service in natural ambient sound, remixed and remastered from the original analog multi-track tapes. First released on Epic Records as an LP in , the original Freedom Highway album, constrained by the time limits of 12" vinyl, edited the New Nazareth Church concert and service down to key performance tracks.

When I'm Gone Help Me Jesus Jesus Is All unreleased Samson and Delilah View The Holy City Tell Heaven In the late 90s, as hip-hop splintered and moved away from its gangsta rap pop cousin, one of the leading lights stateside was the Rawkus label.
Rodney Smith, aka Roots, offered the hip-hop world and beyond something completely new. His debut LP showcased his unique blend of dub and dancehall with hip-hop, its title drawn from a Peter Tosh song.
It cemented his reputation as one of the most creative hip-hop acts on album. Many LPs released in the late 90s and early 00s were pressed in small quantities as vinyl was being phased out. J5 built a solid underground following and were a central part of the indie rap explosion. This was their first LP on a major label. In the late 90s, a resurrected Low Life label would become the benchmark for UK releases and in fact has become a model for labels today, such as High Focus and B-Line Recordings.
Having recorded as part of Mud Fam and contributed to works from the likes of Task Force and Blade, Skinnyman would wait nearly 10 years before releasing his first highly socio-analytical LP, which heavily sampled the 80s film Made In Britain. This album is now seen as a classic and is scarce in its original form.
Our final album comes from a supergroup, The Roots. So many of their LPs could appear in lists of this sort; this acclaimed set has been chosen because not only is it brilliant, but it demonstrates how vinyl is on the rise again.
After initially only receiving a CD release, demand for vinyl ensured that a European gatefold pressing was produced. Registered in England.
