LP Artwork: I've Got the Music In Me / Thelma Houston & Pressure Cooker

When I was buying my first proper hi-fi back in the mid 1970s, this was the album that the specialist was using for demonstration purposes.

It was released in 1975 on the Sheffield Lab label who specialised in direct-to-disc recordings.

The band featured seasoned jazz/fusion session musicians such as Larry Carlton and Tom Scott, and the track included in this week's program, Don't Misunderstand, remains one of my personal favourites.

This great ballad was written by the multi-talented Gordon Parks who was, as well as a songwriter, a gifted photographer (working for LIFE Magazine and Vogue) and film maker (The Learning Tree, Shaft, etc).
