John Morales presents Teena Marie - Love Songs & Funky Beats Remixed With Loving Devotion [BBE Music]

Put out on the circuit on March 26th, 2k21 is "Love Songs & Funky Beats Remixed With Loving Devotion", a musical love letter and homage to Soul / RnB / Disco legend Teena Marie put together and crafted by producer and remixer John Morales who's been working on the singers original recordings for many years before her untimely and early passing in 2010. Released via BBE Music as a massive 18 track 2CD pack this large scale homage sees Morales' carefully reshaping and reworking Teena Marie's classic material - including pieces like the dramatic Disco anthem "First Class Love", the 1981 ProtoRap sequences of "Square Biz", the touching, well sexy late night grooves of of "365", the seductive swing and shuffle of "Wasn't I Good To You", the longing, ecstatic "Lonely Desire" and even a live (!!!) version of "I'm A Sucker For Your Love" -, providing a contemporary update of classic cuts that, due to its 100% authentic sound and respectful approach, could well pass as a collection of lost and rediscovered extended edits and versions from the original days of Disco, Funk and Boogie instead of being a recent contemporary production. Which is a compliment for sure.
