      First time on CD for two classic albums! Al Hudson & The Soul Partners originated in 70s Detroit, had an international chart hit with “You Can Do It” on becoming One Way with Alicia Myers in 1979, and continue to perform across the USA to this day. Expansion previously explored the group’s earlier years at the ATCO label (“The ATCO Years” EXCDM 50) and now move on the much awaited first time ever CD reissues of the four ABC label releases across two new CDs. “Especially For You” and “Cherish” were both originally released in 1977, a heyday year for the quality of soul, disco and funk grooves on those albums. Key songs include “Trying To Prove My Love” and “Why We Must Say Goodbye”, but the full body of work has stood the test of time and sound so good again today.
