Raven presents the first CD release of two original Helen Reddy albums recorded for Capitol: Ear Candy (1977) and We'll Sing in the Sunshine (1978). This follows the successful 2-for-1 reissues on Raven of 'I Am Woman/Long Hard Climb', 'Love Song for Jeffrey/Free and Easy', 'I Don't Know How to Love Him/Helen Reddy' and 'No Way to Treat a Lady/Music, Music'. By the late-1970s with three US #1 hits and a #5 UK hit 'Angie Baby' to her credit Reddy was firmly established as an international superstar. She's remembered as one of the most popular female singers of the decade and her recorded legacy remains a flawlessly produced collection of easy listening pop and big soulful ballads. Produced by LA legend Kim Fowley, 'Ear Candy' continued her chart domination, yielding her Top 20 hit version of 'You're My World'. 'Long Distance Love' and 'The Happy Girls' featured exuberant dance-pop while 'Aquarius Miracle' and 'Midnight Skies' continued her tradition of soaring, romantic balladry. 'We'll Sing in the Sunshine', again produced by Fowley, contained songs by Jeff Lynne, Lennon & McCartney, Gale Garnett and Alan O'Day. With superb quality audio, detailed liner notes and color booklet.

Unusually Helen Reddy co-wrote five of the tracks - tracks 5/7/8/9/10
The second album on this twofer was released in July 1978 and did not reach the album charts.
Two singles were released from this album. Ready Or Not reached 73 on the singles chart and We'll Sing In The Sunshine reached number 12 on the adult contemporary chart.
This is an excellent release from Raven Records and well worth adding to your collection
We'll sing in the sunshine, and the excellent 'Lady of the night' stand out on the 2nd album. Worth having and good value.
