Product Description

Since his come back to performing and recording in the early 90s, Terry Callier has become a bit of a phnomenom. He has filled massive venues, recorded a series of critically aclaimed new albums and had chart hits singing alongside Paul Weller, Massive Attack and Beth Orton. All of this has rested on the foundation of the recording he made for Prestige, Cadet and Elektra throughout the 60s and 70s ending with his amazing modern soul classic `I Don't Want To See Myself (Without You)' on the Erect label. Until now there has never been a compilation that gave an overview of this era.

The CD begins with Terry's first recordings for the legendary Blue producer Sam Charters which produced a highly collectable album on the Prestige label. It then progresses to his recording for the Cadet subsidiary of Chess, which commenced with the 1966 recording session for his sought after Nortern 45 `Look At Me Now' - which crept out 3 years later. He then returned to the label in the early 70s recording 3 classic albums overseen by legendary producer and arranger Charles Stepney. This produced such seminal numbers as `Ordinary Joe', `Dancing Girl' and `I Just Can't Help Myself'. We have also manageed to track down the final unreleased track from the sessions `Hangman' an expressive folk soul performance.

After Cadet, Terry moved to Elektra recording two albums, which showcased the continuing talents of his songwriting with such masterpieces such as `Martin, St Martin' and `Turn You To Love'. These records saw Terry reunited with the likes of Minnie Riperton and Phil Upchurch from the Cadet days. The final recording from this period of Terry's career was the astounding `I Don't Want To See Myself (Without You)' which when rediscovered in the late 80s prompted him to be rediscovered by Acid Jazz's Ed Piller who reissued it and brought him to his current success. Both sides of this single are exceptional and are included. As a further bonus Terry has contributed an exclusive interview so that the sleeve notes really are authoritative.
