First Ever Commercial Release After 47 Years!
Edmonton born singer Judy Singh's 1970 CBC album is one of the most sought after sunshine pop by collectors with originals selling for upwards of $500 a copy. This wonderful mix of influences from Sergio Mendes to Burt Bacharach features breezy jazz and bossa tinged arrangements by Tommy Banks of songs by the Bergmans, Johnny Mandel, Jimmy Webb as well as contemporary Canadian songwriters. Standout tracks include Brasil 66's "Look Around", the DJ friendly "Samba del Sol", Northern Soul tinged "So I'm Wrong Again" and the gorgeous "Song Under The Sun".
In the late 1960s the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation decided it needed to give a boost to home grown talent and help Canadians compete for airtime with British and American artists. The 'Transcription Records' were produced in small runs of 250 units and sent to radio stations across Canada and the US. Some 48 years later, these long-lost albums recorded in the 1960s and '70s by Canadian jazz, folk, blues and rock artists finally see their first ever commercial release.
Highly sought-after and collectable, these exceptional albums are a true vinyl collectors must-have. Remastered from the original tapes where they still exist, or carefully restored from mint vinyl originals along with the original artwork, these strictly limited-edition vinyl reissues will be pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl at the brand new, state-of-the-art record pressing plant Dublin Vinyl.
"Recording this album with my brilliant, dear friend Tommy Banks, was an absolute highlight in my career. What a uniquely creative period in music history it was. I love seeing how vinyl is being resurrected with such passion. I'm grateful to Majikbus for including me in it all." - Judy Singh
