Description

UK R&B/Soul group DELEGATION released their debut LP The Promise of Love in 1977 on State Records, two years in to a recording and performing career that continues to this day. This reissue completes BBRs remaster series of the groups first four LPs. The Promise Of Love features the original line-up of Ricky Bailey, Len Coley and Roddy Harris and was produced by Ken Gold who, along with Mick Denne wrote the majority of the songs, fresh from their breakthrough success with The Real Things You To Me Are Everything. Gold was instrumental in championing DELEGATION and secured the deal with State. With an alternative version issued for the US market, this release sees the original UK album making its CD debut with bonus tracks from the US release as well as their early non-album singles issued on State. The first single from The Promise Of Love, released in 76 was the albums opener and title track, backed with the non-album track It Only Happens previously recorded by Aretha Franklin and Jackie Wilson. However, despite critical acclaim the single peaked outside the Top 50. Gold and Dennes smooth soul/pop sound, allied with lead singer Ricky Baileys rich and soulful interpretations took their next two singles in to the UK top fifty with Where Is The Love (We Used to Know) (#22) and Youve Been Doing Me Wrong (#49).
