BRENDA HOLLOWAY & RAGS MOODY III: Same Page (SoulMusic Records/Platinum Garage Recordings)

BRENDA HOLLOWAY & RAGS MOODY III: Same Page (SoulMusic Records/Platinum Garage Recordings)

Take internationally-renowned Motown legend Brenda Holloway – known for her classic hits, “Every Little Bit Hurts,” “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” and “When I’m Gone” – and one of her musical ‘discoveries’ Alabama-born mutli-talented Rags Moody III, team, them with award-winning producer/songwriter Preston Glass and it’s a perfect combination!

Written by Brenda, Rags and Preston, the heart-stirring “Same Page” hearkens back to the golden duets of Peaches & Herb, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell and Ashford & Simpson, with its infectious and memorable hook and soulful vocal delivery from Brenda – who remains much beloved particularly in the UK where she’s justifiably considered one of the true Motown greats – and Rags whose track “Family Man” from the recently-released “Preston Glass Presents: Love & Compassion” album – has garnered much appreciation among audiences who appreciate traditional soul music.

Another winner from SoulMusic Records (SMR) in association with Platinum Garage Recordings!

• SoulMusic Records is very proud to present a sumptuous 33-track 2-CD set of classic recordings by the legendary Brenda Holloway drawn from Motown’s vaults and recorded between 1963-66.

• SPELLBOUND has been compiled and produced by longtime Motown expert Paul Nixon, responsible for the successful “Cellarful Of Motown” series, who has carefully selected the tracks on this superb compilation by one of Motown’s most soulful singers. Included here are nine previously unreleased tracks along with rare cuts that have only been available digitally.

• California-born Brenda Holloway became the first West Coast-based artist signed to Motown in 1963; within one year, she achieved US national success with the now-timeless classic, “Every Little Bit Hurts”; Brenda’s five further charted singles included “When I’m Gone,” “Just Look What You’ve Done” and “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” (a song she co-wrote, later recorded by pop/rock group Blood, Sweat & Tears).

• Although Motown only issued one LP, Brenda recorded prolifically for the label, with literally dozens of tracks remaining in the vast Motown vaults until producer Nixon began including tracks on various reissues. SPELLBOUND features (2) tracks cut in 1963, (23) in 1964 and (8) in 1966; producers included Marc Gordon & Hal Davis, Frank Wilson, Johnny Bristol & Harvey Fuqua, Ivy Jo Hunter, Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier, Norman Whitfield, Mickey Stevenson and William Weatherspoon with material written by, among others, Sylvia Moy, Billy Page, Jimmy Webb, Janie Bradford and the Lewis Sisters.

• Notes by renowned UK Motown historian and writer Sharon Davis include 2017 quotes from Brenda along with an essay by producer Nixon; and stellar remastering by Nick Robbins.
