• SoulMusic Records is proud to present a specially-compiled CD of remixes of five of the major hits by international hitmakers Tavares by top European remix producer Ben Liebrand, four of which achieved major British chart impact when issued in 1985 and 1986 as well as a US disco version of “It Only Takes A Minute,” making its CD debut along with the Liebrand-penned instrumental “One Minute.”

• From 1973 to 1981, the brothers Tavares – Ralph, Feliciano (“Butch”) Arthur (“Pooch”) Antone (Chubby) and Perry (Tiny) – recorded a treasure trove of great albums and singles for Capitol Records. In 1975, the group enjoyed its first breakthrough hit with “It Only Takes A Minute”; in 1976, the timeless classic “Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel” became the team’s first global smash followed by “Don’t Take Away The Music” also became an international dance music/pop and R&B chartmaker. In 1977, the Bee Gees-penned “More Than A Woman” (from the ‘Saturday Night Fever’ soundtrack) catapulted Tavares back into the worldwide charts as did “Whodunit.”

• Remastered by Donald Cleveland, this 2016 release follows the label’s reissue of seven Capitol albums by the group – Love Storm (SMCR-5127), Hard Core Poetry (SMCR-5097), Love Uprising (SMCR-5065), Madam Butterly (SMCR-5064), Supercharged (SMCR–5045), Sky-High! (SMCR-5023) and In The City (SMCR-5022). Stellar notes by renowned U.S. writer Kevin Goins include quotes from members of the group.
