    The subject of Music From Memory’s latest compilation release is the elusive and mysterious Philadelphian musician Napoleon Cherry (aka Cool Waters). In the late 80s and early 90s Cherry privately released two LPs and an EP which form the basis of this retrospective, alongside an unreleased cut "When You Had The Chance" which was recently released on 12" in collaboration with US label PPU. Recorded with a very DIY aesthetic and a strong presence of gospel and RnB, Cherry’s unique take on soul and funk music, reflect a rawness that stands in contrast to some of the more over-produced soul music of that era.
