An album that really stands the test of time – and it will amazingly be 20 years old in 2019 – is Hil St Soul’s debut SOUL ORGANIC.
The first ever Dome project to feature on the Billboard R&B chart in the US, it also yielded the stunning acoustic version of “Until You Come Back To Me”, which ended up as the most played vocal track of 2000 across all the US smooth jazz radio stations.
Zambian-born Hilary and production/writing partner Victor Redwood-Sawyerr crafted a masterpiece – so many gems from opening single “Strictly A Vibe Thang” to the ultra funky groove of “For Your Love” and the excellent “Just A Matter of Time”.
An album that is well worth re-visiting, and one that all concerned can be very proud of.
Released in 2004, Rahsaan Patterson’s “After Hours” is a seriously impressive album.
From the opening R&B mood-setter “The One For Me”, the album is full of gems, like the up-tempo “So Hot” and the gorgeous “April’s Kiss”. No Rahsaan album would be complete without a killer ballad and “The Best” is just that. The UK/Europe Dome release of the album also includes a modern soul classic as a bonus cut – the stunning “Straighten It Out”, co-written by Rahsaan with fellow Dome artist Mikelyn Roderick.
