The second reissue from the Arista catalogue of muchloved
and much-missed songstress Phyllis Hyman
(following the April 2013 release of SOMEWHERE IN MY
LIFETIME, SMCR-5092), GODDESS OF LOVE marked a
commercial triumph for the singer giving her a US Top 20
R&B best-selling album as well as a US Top 30 R&B hit (and
dance music charted single) with ‘Riding The Tiger.’

Originally the album – a follow-up to the 1981 album Can’t
We Fall In Love Again – was due to be produced in its
entirety by Philly hitmaker Thom Bell; Arista head Clive
Davis asked Narada Michael Walden (already experiencing
success with Arista artist Angela Bofill among others) to
add three songs with Phyllis to complete the project which
included the uptempo, atmospheric title track and the
standout smooth ballad ‘Let Somebody Love You’ (cowritten
by Preston Glass).

Thom Bell’s production work on the six songs also
provided Phyllis with a wonderful setting for her
distinctive vocal style, a fusion of pop, soul and jazz.
Highlights included brilliantly-orchestrated ‘Your Move, My
Heart,’ the poignant ‘Falling Star,’ a slice of classic Philly
soul via ‘We Should Be Lovers’ and the beautiful ‘Just
Twenty Five Miles To Anywhere.’

Originally reissued in 2010 in the U.S. on CD, this new
expanded edition includes the three bonus tracks,
versions of ‘Riding The Tiger.’ Extensive notes by
renowned U.S. writer A. Scott Galloway include quotes
from Thom Bell, Narada Michael Walden and Preston Glass
among others.
