• Loleatta Holloway was a dance music legend. Her amazing vocal talents gained her the reputation as one of the premier vocalists of soul and dance music during the 70’s and 80’s. Holloway started her singing career with Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker (and her Caravans) before striking out on her own. She released her first single "Rainbow ‘71” on the fledgling Apache label before moving to Aware to record her first two albums prior to her work with Gold Mind/Salsoul.
• Holloway’s first album for Gold Mind was “Loleatta” (CDBBR0108) which spawned the R&B/Dance hits ‘Worn Out Broken Heart,’ ‘Hit And Run’ and ‘Dreamin’.’ She recorded two more albums for Gold Mind/Salsoul before contributing vocals to the disco classic ‘Re-light My Fire’ by Dan Hartman, who went on to write and produce the title track for her fourth and final album for Gold Mind/Salsoul, LOVE SENSATION.
• LOVE SENSATION, released in 1980, provided Holloway with several disco hits. Not least was the title track and album opener which scorched dance floors and propelled this heavily sampled classic to the #1 spot on the Billboard dance charts and rivals her recording of the timeless classic ‘Run Away,’ with The Salsoul Orchestra, as her most enduring performance. ‘Dance What ‘Cha Wanna’ and ‘Short End Of The Stick’ (both penned by Bobby and Cecil Womack) were also strong dance floor favourites, the former of which would bring even the most rooted wallflower to express themselves with abandon. Holloway also shows off her incredible range and vocal nuance on the ballads ‘My Way’ (Bobby Womack) and the classic Jerry Butler and Otis Redding composition ‘I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.’
• BBR is very proud to bring you LOVE SENSATION, completely remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and extended bonus content. Ideal for all R&B, Soul, Disco and Salsoul fans.
