Description

RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2018

A solid retrospective of award-winning recording artist, producer, songwriter and musician Michael Henderson’s hit-filled tenure (1976-1983) with Buddah Records, Michael died on July 19th, 2022 at the age of 71.

Compiled by SoulMusic Records’ founder David Nathan, featuring all of Michael’s 15 US charted singles including the Top 5 R&B hit ‘Take Me I’m Yours’ and the 1981 hit duet with Phyllis Hyman, ‘Can’t We Fall In Love Again’ as well as key LP cuts.

With stellar liner notes by Billboard senior editor Gail Mitchell include extensive quotes and track-by-track commentary from Michael; and first class remastering and artwork.

Before achieving international recognition as an artist in his own right, the Michigan-born performer began doing shows as a bass player with R&B favourites, The Detroit Emeralds; before, in the late 60s, a youthful Stevie Wonder invited the teenager to join his band and playing on sessions with Motown artists including The Four Tops, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Gladys Knight & The Pips and David Ruffin. He joined jazz legend Miles Davis’ touring and recording band in 1970 which before he cut his own ‘Valentine Love’ as a duet with Jean Carn for Norman Connors’ ‘Saturday Night Special’ LP. The title track for Connors’ 1976 LP, ‘You Are My Starship’ established Michael as a hitmaker in his own right and was followed by a duet with then-newcomer Phyllis Hyman (‘We Both Need Each Other’). In 1976, Buddah Records released ‘Solid’, Michael’s first of seven albums for the label.
