Item ID: 359408

First ever CD issue for this superior soul album, produced by ex-Moonglow and Motown writer-Producer Harvey Fuqua for Fantasy Records in 1975. The vocal similarities between former beauty queen Janice Barnett Saddler and her contemporary Gladys Knight have long endeared her to all fans of quality 70s soul. On its vinyl release "Janice" was embraced by the Northern Soul brigade for its two storming dancers, I Told You So and Wake Up Smiling - although sublime sweet soul ballads like Goody Two Shoes also proved, then and now, that Janice (the group) were more than merely the latest dance-oriented act to fall off discos assembly line. Unusually the album was passed over for UK release at the time of its American issue, and although various tracks have appeared on compilations down the years this BGP issue also marks the first time that "Janice" has been issued in its entirety here. Apart from a few earlier singles as Janice and the Jammers and the Reggie Saddler Revue this great album represents the complete recorded legacy of a group and a singer who lacked for nothing, except the right breaks. Beautifully remastered from the original album production tapes, this is indeed an essential addition to BGPs Funk and Soul Classics series.
