Released in 1983, MERCILESS was the second of the three
albums that powerhouse vocalist Stephanie Mills recorded for Casablanca and preceeded “I’ve Got The Cure”(reissued
as an expanded edition by SoulMusic Records in 2013).
The New York-born singer had already achieved consistent
hit-making status in the U.S. thanks to the best-selling
albums and a slew of hit singles that had established the
former Broadway star of ‘The Wiz’ as a potent and dynamic
recording artist and live performer.
The production of MERCILESS was supervised by famed music
man Phil Ramone and industry mogul Charles Koppelman,
with sessions handled by the team of David Wolfert and Gary
Klein (the team behind The Four Tops’ early ‘80s hit, ‘When
She Was My Girl’). The album included ‘My Body,’ a song
written especially for Stephanie by Luther Vandross; her
ultra-soulful cover of Prince’s ‘How Come U Don’t Call Me
Anymore?’ (a US Top 20 R&B hit); and the humour-filled ‘His
Name Is Michael,’ co-written by the singer and featuring one
of her background vocalists at the time, soul singer Peggi
Out of print for many years on CD, this SoulMusic Records’
expanded edition includes two bonus tracks – a 12” club
mix of ‘Pilot Error’ (also a US Top 20 R&B hit single) and
‘Hold Me Close to You’ (from the soundtrack of the Tom
Cruise film, “All The Right Moves”) along with liner notes by
renowned UK writer Charles Waring including quotes from
producer Wolfert and guitarist Michael Sembello who played
on sessions for the album.
