Alicia Myers (born November 20, 1957), is an American R&B musician. She started her music career with the band Al Hudson & the Soul Partners. Her first solo release, Alicia, was released in 1981 with MCA Records, and it was her breakthrough release upon the Billboard magazine charts, placing on the R&B Albums.
One Way was an American R&B/Funk band that was very popular in the late 1970s and throughout most of the 1980s. One Way was formed in 1979 in Detroit, Michigan as the newer incarnation of a band originally known as Soul Partners. The original members were Al Hudson, Alicia Myers, guitarists Dave Roberson and Cortez Harris, bassist Kevin McCord, drummer Gregory Green and keyboardist Jonathan Meadows. They first recorded as "Al Hudson and the Partners", scoring an R&B hit on the ABC label called "You Can Do It" in 1979.
Languishing in the vaults for over thirty years, here are the six tracks that the legendary Keith Hudson recorded at Tuff Gong with the Wailers rhythm section Carlton and Family Man Barrett on drums and bass respectively. These tracks were intended for an album that never came as Hudson succumbed to cancer and passed away in November 1984. The Barrett brothers were augmented by fellow Wailers Junior Marvin on guitar and Tyrone Downie on keys.
This was Alicia de Larrocha’s finest account of Nights in the Gardens of Spain, fully capturing the Andalusian atmosphere of this evocative score. After all, it’s not a work about landscapes and flowers – it’s about love. Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos does a superb job of drawing perfume and color out of an English orchestra.
