Grammy Award Winner, Billy Paul is most noted for his R&B and Pop #1 ME AND MRS. JONES from his 1972 album 360 Degrees Of Billy Paul (CDBBR 0175). From the early 70’s through to the early
80’s Billy Paul was one of the most successful artists on the legendary Philadelphia International Records imprint scoring several hit albums and singles and securing his reputation as one
of the most expressive, dynamic and heartfelt soul singers in the world.
Having released his last solo album for PIR in 1979 (First Class) Billy took a break from the studio but returned in 1985 having signed a deal with Lonnie Simmons Total Experience Records
(joining new label mates the Gap Band and Yarbrough & Peoples) and cut this album, LATELY, the fifth Billy Paul album to be given the BBR re-master treatment!
Unlike his PIR recordings on which he was backed by a live band/orchestra LATELY has a fully synth/keyboard based musical backdrop produced under the direction of Total Experience staff
songwriters/producers Jonah Ellis and Oliver Scott (as well as Billy Paul himself) which gave the Philly Soul singer a contemporary sound favoured by many Soul and R&B artists of the time.
Standout cuts on LATELY are Billy’s covers of ‘ON A CLEAR DAY’ and ‘I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU’, the ethereal ballad ‘LET ME IN’, ‘GET DOWN TO LOVIN’’, ‘HOT DATE’ and ‘SEXUAL THERAPY’,
a track in the same vain as Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’.
BBR is very proud to bring you LATELY, completely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes and bonus content.
