SoulMusic Records is extremely proud to reissue two
much-sought after albums by the legendary group Little
Anthony & The Imperials, the 1973 LP ON A NEW STREET
and the ultra-rare HOLD ON, which was withdrawn after
just a few weeks after its initial release in 1975.

Anthony and The Imperials were already established as
hitmakers (thanks to classic recordings such as ‘Goin’ Out
Of My Head,’ ‘Hurt So Bad,’ and ‘Tears On My Pillow’) by
the time they signed with Avco Records. For their debut
album for the label, the quartet chose to work with two
producers, Teddy Randazzo (with whom they’d enjoyed
their mid-60’s hits and Thom Bell (enjoying success with
The Delfonics and just beginning his hit-filled association
with The Stylistics). With its soulful sophistication, ON A
NEW STREET benefited from the superb arrangements and
production of both Randazzo and Bell and included the
Top 30 R&B hit, ‘I’m Falling In Love With You.’

For HOLD ON, their second Avco album, the team worked
with two of Thom Bell’s then-proteges, his brother (the
late) Tony Bell and future hitmaker in his own right, Phil
Hurtt, both of whom co-wrote all nine tracks for the
project. The single, ‘Hold On (Just A Little Bit Longer)’
achieved some chart success and has since become a
much-sought after Philly ‘70s classic particularly among UK
soul music buyers.

Extensive notes for this 2-CD set by renowned US writer
Kevin Goins include a new 2013 interview with Anthony
Gourdine along with quotes from producer Phil Hurtt and
lyricist Victoria Pike among others.
