Deliver The Love: The Anthology
RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2017
A sumptuous 2CD homage to the late legendary vocalist, Phyllis Hyman.
‘Deliver The Love’ focuses on the Pittsburgh-born entertainer’s years with Buddah Records and Arista Records.
Featuring all her charted tracks released between 1976-1985 including ‘You Know How To Love Me’, ‘Somewhere In My Lifetime’ and ‘Betcha By Golly Wow’.
Lovingly produced by SoulMusic Records’ founder David Nathan who began interviewing Phyllis in 1977 and maintained his association with her until 1995, the year of her passing).
With a plethora of guest appearances with other musical giants including Norman Connors, Grover Washington Jr., Pharaoh Sanders, McCoy Tyner and Barry Manilow.
The soulful singer’s duets with Michael Henderson – ‘Can’t We Fall In Love Again’ and ‘We Both Need Each Other’ are included along with 12” single versions of ‘Kiss You All Over’, the stunning Thom Bell-Linda Creed composition, ‘Loving You, Losing You’ and ‘Living Inside Your Love’. Other highlights include the Bell-produced ‘Magic Mona’, the underrated ‘Just Imagine…’ (from the Norman Connors’ album ‘You Are My Starship’) and the timeless standard, ‘In A Sentimental Mood’, from the Broadway musical Duke Ellington’s Sophisticated Ladies which garnered Phyllis a Tony nomination in 1981. In addition, four obscure tracks that remained unreleased until issued on UK compilations in the last ten years are also included along with much-loved gems from the Hyman recorded legacy such as ‘I Don’t Want To Lose You’, her self-penned ‘Gonna Make Changes’, ‘No One Can Love You More’ and ‘Be Careful (How You Treat My Love)’.
With stellar liner notes by A. Scott Galloway including quotes from Stanley Clarke, Onaje Allen Gumbs, Jean Carn, Preston Glass, Narada Michael Walden and others; a personal tribute by David Nathan; first class remastering by Donald Cleveland; and excellent artwork by Roger Williams.
