    Blinky "Heart Full Of Soul: The Motown Anthology" 2CD set (Real Gone) (11/01/2019)

    Description
    The story of Sondra "Blinky" Williams has long been shrouded in mystery. The soulful singer came to Motown Records in 1967 following stints at Vee-Jay and Atlantic, bringing her passionate and powerful deep soul sound to Hitsville, USA. Despite recording dozens of tracks between 1968 and 1973, only a small handful saw release: a mere four 45s plus an album of duets with Edwin Starr, two live cuts, and a couple of one-off recordings, including a key moment on the best-selling soundtrack of Lady Sings the Blues. Over the years, Blinky tracks would emerge on compilation releases, prompting fans worldwide to clamor for more and even launch a "Free Blinky from the Vaults" campaign. Now, Blinky is free at last—and her full story can be told. Heart Full of Soul—--The Motown Anthology is the ultimate collection dedicated to Motown's great lost superstar. Over two CDs and almost 50 songs, Blinky's Motown journey is chronicled with songs written and produced for her by the label's greatest talents including Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson, Clay McMurray, Frank Wilson, Hal Davis, Gil Askey, Deke Richards, Jerry Marcellino and Mel Larson, Don Hunter, and Stevie Wonder. The first disc presents her 1970 album Sunny and Warm in complete form for the very first time along with all of her released singles plus rarities and live tracks. The second disc premieres over 20 never-before-heard recordings, both in original Motown stereo mixes and brand-new mixes by Kevin Reeves, that showcase the depth and breadth of Blinky's remarkable voice. Released with the full cooperation of the artist, Heart Full of Soul: The Motown Anthology has been produced and annotated by the team of Joe Marchese and Andrew Skurow (Bobby Darin's Go Ahead and Back Up: The Lost Motown Masters, The Supremes' The Ultimate Merry Christmas), and mastered by Kevin Reeves (The Supremes' Expanded Editions) from the original tapes. The deluxe booklet (housed inside a 6-panel digipak) features rare photographs and extensive liner notes drawing on a new interview with Blinky. Gospel, jazz, R&B, and the classic Motown Sound all come together with the distinctive voice of Motown's greatest "lost" artist, Blinky. Heart Full of Soul has to be heard to be believed.

    Fantastic! Can't wait to finally see this one! Real Gone is to be commended. They put out so much great stuff. Let's support them, guys!

  8. #8
    Id said that our patience would pay off, and it has. Thanks Real Gone and everyone else involved.

  9. #9
    Thud! Now that I 've picked myself off the floor, might I ask if Real Gone has asked/will ask Blinky about autographing copies that will be sold on their website? It's been done several times before with the featured artist's co-operation. Or is this something to which people are also sworn to secrecy?

    How wonderful this news is as there hasn`t been much lately to get enthused about.I can`t get my head around vinyl only releases. I bought the "Sounds Of Motown" LP recently and had it transferred to CD, but it`s an expensive pain in the arse.
    Copley I`m so happy for you.

    Good News! Real Gone is awesome, I am a regular customer.

    Thanks Roger, to say I'm over the moon is an understatement

    As a Motown completist, I will probably buy this if it is reasonable enough. As I keep saying, keep them coming!

  15. #15
    Thanks, Eddie! I've pre-ordered my copy. According to Amazon, Blinky is their "#1 New Release". Way to go, Blinky!

    Just ordered mine. Let's be sure to get behind this release. Never thought we'd see it but thrilled that Real Gone is putting it out. Their releases are so high quality.

  19. #19
    This is a definite buy! So excited that Blinky will be freed from the vaults and I will enjoy her time in my cd player!

  20. #20
    OMG, I can't believe it! How fantastic! Looks amazing!

    I've been checking this site regular for new releases and so far this year, aside from Jr Walker & The All Stars,' has been a huge dud for new CD releases.
    This is amazing news. I can't wait to get this!

    The excitement i have for this release is as great as if they were ten releases on the same day! I’m ordering mine as soon as I get my next paycheck.

    Just ordered mine direct from Real Gone. This is a very exciting release!

    Could not find it on the RG site

  25. #25
    It requires some searching as the RGM site is inexplicably a bit out of date:

    https://shop.realgonemusic.com/products/blinky-heart-full-of-soul-the-motown-anthology-2-cd-set

    Thanks for the RGM link to Blinky, danman. I've cancelled my Amazon order and have ordered it through Real Gone Music instead.

    coudn't agree more

  32. #32
    Thnx for the info guys!
    Cheaper than Amazon at the RG site

    But 14 $ for shipping,taxes etc is way too much.
    Will wait for the price to come down
