SoulMusic Records is very proud to present 'Valentine Love: The Buddah/Arista Anthology', a musically sumptuous 2-CD set by renowned musician and producer, the multi-talented Norman Connors. Covering almost a decade (1972-1981), the 34 tracks include all of Norman's ten US charted singles; a rare 12" mix of the 1977 cut, 'Captain Connors'; two tracks from the album, 'Norman Connors Presents Aquarian Dream' (including one, 'Once Again', featuring Gloria Jones); key album cuts, 'Dindi' and 'Maiden Voyage' and a musical feast of tracks featuring a number of artists who first gained prominence through their recordings with Norman such as Jean Carn, Michael Henderson, Phyllis Hyman, Prince Phillip Mitchell, Eleanore Mills, Al Johnson, Adaritha, Glenn Jones and Beau Williams. Before he became known as a premier music man with 'golden ears' (for his discovery of so many great vocalists), the Philadelphia drummer served his musical apprenticeship with John Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders before embarking on his own recording career in 1972. By 1975, Connors had achieved his first chart breakthrough thanks to the soulful pairing of Carn and Henderson on the now-classic 'Valentine Love.' Extensive liner notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring including 2017 numerous quotes from Norman himself, longtime band members Jacques Burvick and Kenneth Nash and others.
