• leroy hutson Anthology 1972-1984 (double LP, £19.75)

    label: Acid Jazz

    The definitive Leroy Hutson compilation.  A legend to soul fans, his catalogue has been increasingly sought after by collectors and producers since the last time it was widely available nearly 20 years ago.  College friends and early collaborator with Donny Hathaway then hand-picked as Curtis Mayfield’s replacement in The Impressions, his solo career resulted in 7 albums for Mayfield’s Curtom label. They are considered some of the greatest of the era and the very best music from them is collected here.  Licensed from Mr Hutson himself, this represents his first approved Anthology, and comes in a beautiful package with an essay by soul expert and Mojo award-winning writer Tony Rounce and memorabilia and photos from Mr. Hutson’s own personal archive.  The first single lifted to preview the album – the previously unreleased ‘Positive Forces’ was championed at 6Music by Gilles Peterson who described it as one of the most important discoveries of the past ten years.
