    Linda Clifford "If My Friends", "Here's My Love", "Let Me Be" , "I'm Yours" remaster

    On August 24th, Los Angeles, CA based label Blixa Sounds will release 4 Classic Albums by American R&B and Disco icon Linda Clifford. The 4 albums, If My Friends Could See Me Now, Here's My Love, Let Me Be Your Woman, and I'm Yours, were originally released on the Curtom Records label, and produced several Top 10 Singles including "Runaway Love," "If My Friends Could See Me Now," "Gypsy Lady," "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Shoot Your Best Shot" and "Red Light," which was featured on the Fame Soundtrack. Linda is alive and well and living in the Chicago area and still is out there performing her hits on her own or with fellow Disco Divas, Evelyn "Champagne" King and Martha Wash as "The First Ladies Of Disco." During the height of the "Disco Era," Linda Clifford dominated the Billboard Dance Charts and all of those songs will now be available on CD for the first time ever, including bonus tracks.

    Luckily, I downloaded Let Me Be Your Woman years ago. I’ll strike while the iron is hot this time.

    I kinda liked "Linda" and "If My Friends Could See Me Now". I'm not much of a Linda Clifford fan, but these reissues are a jubilation. For one I'm happy that Rhino/WB were nice enough to licence the masters because I heard they can be quite tough with their holdings. Other than a few Curtis Mayfield reissues I haven't seen much action. Finally it looks as if they're keeping their promise to Curtis upon purchasing the Curtom catalogue, to keep it alive. They have some great stuff, among them maybe 100+ unreleased/incomplete Curtis tracks. Hopefully this is the beginning of better days for this part of their archive.

    Does Rhino still exist and do reissues?

    Loved the song where the girl is approached by the guy in the big car. I think it is called Don't Give it Up.

    Bump: And voilŠ! Theyíre back on iTunes! (For pre-order, anyway.)

    The I'M YOURS LP was a pretty decent Isaac Hayes project that also contained the added inclusion of the song RED LIGHT from the movie FAME produced and arranged by Motown's Gil Askey. The Linda Clifford album had a shortened single version while the FAME st. featured the entire six minute version. Looks like that is still the case in this pressing, nothing different is noted, but song lengths are not provided.

    I wish they would include her first Curtom recording, Linda. I picked it up because it had Gil Askey's name attached to it and I really love that record. It seems to be the missing album in her collection these days.

    It remains available on iTunes if you're into that sorta thing.

    If I can't get something on CD then I will download. I have high hopes that Linda will one day be released on CD in the US. It appears to have been released as a double CD in Europe but I didn't know that back in 2000! The prices now are ridiculous.

    You can say that again. I'm fortunate to still have a great used CD store with great prices in my city; I raid them every weekend. I always keep my eyes peeled for Linda.

    I have a second copy of this double CD. Just checked the prices on Discogs and did not know it was worth so much. Glad I did not sell it to a second hand cd shop for a Euro.
