Legendary singer PP Arnold with a previously unreleased album from 1967. Produced by Barry Gibb, Eric Clapton etc. Arriving in England as an Ikette with the Ike and Tina review in the mid-60's, PP was spotted by Mick Jagger who immediately convinced Andrew Loog Oldham to sign her to his label Immediate Records. Several huge hits followed, First Cut is The Deepest, Angel Of The Morning, If You Think You're Groovy and so on... PP became one of the iconic faces of the 60's. It was around 1968 when Immediate Records folded and PP found herself at a crossroad, looking for a new label that would give her the opportunity to continue to put out music and take her to the next phase of her musical journey. These recordings were left sitting on shelves for many years due to industry politics, and still after all these years, PP could never fathom the thought that nobody would be able to hear them. It became her mission to let these recordings see the light of day, and not let this incredible piece of music history stay buried. With the help of PP’s current manager, Sally Cradock and music industry veteran Bill Levenson, whose past history includes putting together compilations for Bob Marley, Donna Summer and Jerry Lee Lewis, they began to recover these lost gems and fight for the right to release them, from various publishers who were not keen to part with them. Steve Cradock (Ocean Colour Scene) began mixing the tracks, calling upon his old friend Paul Weller, who gladly allowed them to use his Black Barn Studio, and also his long time engineer, Charles Rees. The results were remarkable; after all these years, pieces of history were brought back to life again.
