Is this a Billboard ad?

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Capitol (EMI) was a force to be reckoned with in r&b/soul from about 1979-1985. They released some true classics, many of which have never been on cd boo-hoo. Funkytowngrooves recently released all of Melba Moore's Capitol albums. Hopefully there will be more Capitol product available soon like the three first Rene & Angela albums!

Just like the white winged dove...

I made the mistake of buying this a few years ago. They had it for sale on dustygrooves so I thought it would be okay. Boy, was I disappointed. The sound quality on some of the songs was horrendous!

Was it issued on one of thos "Vinyl Masterpiece" labels? I bought Atlantic Starr's Radiance from Dusty Groove and the sound quality on that one was horrible also.

No, it wasn't issued by Vinyl Masterpieces but it was one of those small labels that ripped from vinyl. But, in this instance, some of the tracks sounded as if they were ripped from a cassette tape or perhaps an 8-track!!! eek I can't remember which label it was but they probably went out of business after they released that bloody mess.

That's a shame. Just a way to try to cash in!
