Jasmine Guy is the studio debut album by American actress-singer Jasmine Guy, released in October 1990 under Warner Bros. Records. The album peaked at No. 143 on the Billboard 200 and 38 on Top R&B Albums chart. The singles, "Another Like My Lover", "Try Me" and "Just Want to Hold You", where top 40 hits on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart. Although the album was an overall success, plans for a follow-up release were terminated when Guy and Warner Bros. Records ended their three-year relationship in 1993.
Arthur Gunter, a seemingly obscure blues singer will never be forgotten because he holds a unique place in American pop history. His first recording, 'Baby Let's Play House' in 1954 for Excello Records of Nashville became one of the first recordings by Elvis Presley. This is the first time both sides of his Excello singles have been collected together in chronological order and the quality of these sessions are all exciting and typical of the kind of blues popular in the south.
Listen to the sounds of Arthur Gunter and wonder at the impression it must have had on the young Elvis Presley - stunning by all accounts. This collection is a must for blues and R&B fans.
Reece's style was so striking that it even impressed Miles Davis, who started to recommend him to anyone who would listen. Sonny Rollins was also a fan, and with these two titans propping Reece it was only a matter of time before Blue Note came calling. A month after his label debut, Blues in Trinity, came out in 1959 (it was recorded the previous year), Melody Maker announced triumphantly, "Trumpeter Dizzy Reece is the first British jazz star to be signed exclusively by an American record company."
