Two new tracks today as, which I apologize for, there was no addition to the blog yesterday. Thought I´d spotlight a couple of Oskar´s, the other half of Soulville!, big records from previous nights. First off is this wonderful 1979 dancer from Rena Scott. Rena Scott was a troubled teenager who sought refuge in her singing at a local baptist church in her native Detroit. It didn´t take long before her talent was discovered and she soon found herself singing backup behind childhood idols like The Temptations and Aretha Franklin. However, her own career never reached the likes of such superstars and was for a long time largely a disappointment to her. She kept going though and in the recent years she has found a new audience more within the jazz and easy listening circuit. But today, we return to Scott´s roots once again with this James Mtume and Reggie Lucas production which is taken from her first album. Enjoy!
