Doris Duke - I'm A Loser (Charly R&b Re-Issue)

Recommended Posts

Guest BabyHuey

Hello again. I recieved in the post this morning a copy of Doris Duke - Im a Loser. This copy is a 1981 reissue on UK label Charly R&B. I am disappointed to say the least. For some reason the songs seem to have a much faster tempo than that of the tracks on the 2005 CD reissue.

I played the LP and the CD reissues at the same time and the LP definately has a faster tempo. Does anyone know if the original LP on Canyon has a faster tempo than the 2005 CD reissue? The LP only cost me £5 and is in immaculate condition, just wondering if its worth sourcing the original on Canyon.

At the moment the CD version beats the LP reissue for me. g.gif

Thanks for any info you guys can provide.

The LP in question:

Get the Canyon original , as you probably know by owning the cd , it,s one of the greatest lps of all time. Not to be listened to at any time of depression or loss though ,it,s so deep it will tip anyone over the edge . A album of supreme artistry .

I think the problem was my turntable was running too fast. Changed the speed and it now syncs up with the CD.

The reissue isnt too bad, sounds a little too clean for my liking though.

Overall I'm pretty happy :thumbup:

On the lookout for "A legend in her own time" now.

Which IMO along with I'm A Loser, is sheer perfection in terms of soulfulness..........

If you like these then I recommend "Too Many People In One Bed" by Sandra Phillips and "In between Tears" by Irma Thomas, both produced by Jerry Williams aka Swamp dogg and in the same vein.

Really good call Joe.

All are indispensable.

Any idea how much I should be paying for a copy of 'A Legend in her Own Time'? Either original US/UK or reissue. Can't find any finished auctions on Ebay.

Also does anyone know if "By the time I get to phoenix" from 'A legend in her own time' was released as a single? g.gif

Thanks. I'll have a listen to these when I get a chance. Need to start listening to some actual Swamp Dogg albums as well.

Kent released these great CD's

The Sandra Phillips part of the CD is a straight re-issue or her Canyon LP and the Bette Williams stuff is mainly her Gregar stuff, plus a few extra's.

The Irma Thomas is the Canyon to Fungus stuff + some extra's

They are well worth a purchase.thumbsup.gif

What is the deal with these Charly R&B reissues? I just got a sealed copy of 'Love Trails' by Ann Sexton also a reissue from Charly and it kind of sounds a bit too clean.

I'm not sure what to think of these yet. rolleyes.gif
