The legendary Jerry Butler (nicknamed ‘The Ice Man’ for both
his ‘cool’ vocal style and his personal demeanour) was already
well established as a successful recording artist in 1975 when
he was approached by then-Motown president Ewart Abner,
with whom he’d worked at the start of his recording career at
Vee-Jay Records, to sign with the globally-renowned record

Chicago-based Jerry began immediately working on LOVE’S ON
THE MENU with some of Motown’s in-house producers
(including Hal Davis, Michael Sutton and Michael Smith), the
team of Clayton Ivey & Terry Woodford; and hometown
producers Michael Davis and Sam Brown. The album featured
mostly original compositions (a number co-written by Butler)
alongside covers of the Syreeta/Stevie Wonder song, ‘I’m Goin’
Left,’ Olivia Newton-John’s ‘I Honestly Love You,’ the Lionel
Richie-penned, Commodores-recorded standout ‘This Is Your
Life’ and the single, ‘The Devil In Mrs. Jones’ (a reference to
the famous ‘70s adult movie of the same name.

Released in 1977, Jerry’s second Motown set SUITE FOR A
SINGLE GIRL (which he co-produced with Homer Talbert and
Paul Wilson) and was, as its’ title implied, a concept-driven
album. Recorded in Chicago, the nine tracks were written by
members of Jerry’s famed Music Workshop; standouts included
the US R&B charted single ‘I Wanna Do It To You,’ ‘Only Pretty
Girls’ and the almost-eight minute long opus, ‘Music In Her
Dreams/Dream Music.’ Out of print on CD for decades, this
SoulMusic Records’ reissue of two classic ‘70s Motown albums
includes notes by renowned US writer Kevin (“Soul Ninja”)
