Deluxe Reissue of Meli'sa Morgan's "Do Me Baby"

FANTASTIC ALBUM!!!music

After singing with the groups Shades Of Love and High Fashion and doing session work in New York, Meli’sa Morgan’s solo career skyrocketed with the 1985 release of her emotive reading of Prince’s “Do Me Baby,” a No. 1 U.S. R&B single and U.S. Top 50 pop hit.

• Named after her debut hit, DO ME BABY featured production by Paul Laurence, Bryan Loren and five tracks co-produced by Meli’sa and co-writer Lesette Wilson.

• A Top 5 U.S. R&B and Top 50 pop best-selling album, DO ME BABY also included the Top 5 U.S. R&B single, the classic slow jam “Do You Still Love Me?” as well as the hit singles “Fool’s Paradise” (used by Jay Z in 1996 on “Can’t Knock The Hustle” featuring Mary J. Blige).

• The original LP has long been in demand by Meli’sa’s fans: this exciting expanded edition includes mixes of two of the album’s hit singles along with a 12” single edit of the key cut, “Getting To Know You Better.” In addition, there are two mixes of “Deeper Love” (from the soundtrack of the 1986 Eddie Murphy hit movie, “The Golden Child”), a U.S. and U.K. charted single for Mel’isa.

• A consistent performer, Meli’sa was featured on the commercially-released remix of Jay Z’s “Can’t Knock The Hustle” and in 2010 on the Cool Million album, “Back For More.”

• Notes by renowned U.S. writer Justin Kantor include quotes from a 2011 interview with Meli’sa for this reissue

Although I already have the original CD release, I'll definately be picking this one up because of the bonus tracks. But, I"m probably going to keep my original press for sentimental reasons. It was one of the first CDs I purchased way back in '87.biggrin
