Soul Jazz are issuing this seminal in-demand super-rare boogie-funk-soul album produced by Roy Ayers originally released on his own independent Uno Melodic label in 1981.

This incredible one-off album produced by Roy Ayers in 1981 features the amazing vocal talents of Sylvia Striplin, one of the featured members of Eighties Ladies, who the year before had released another seminal release (“Ladies of the Eighties”) also produced by Roy Ayers. Striplin was also the vocalist in the classic jazz fusion soul group Aquarian Dream. Sylvia Striplin’s solo album features the two classic singles ‘Give Me Your Love’ and “You Can’t Turn Love Away’. Her only solo album – this has been a serious collectors album ever since it’s original release and is definitely a rare groove holy grail!

Soul Jazz Records are re-issuing this remastered album in its entirety with original artwork, in Soul Jazz case edition CD. Vinyl is on heavyweight double vinyl and deluxe heavyweight card – even better and louder than the original!
