UK two CD set. For any female to make their mark in the male dominated music industry, prolonged success has always been a struggle, and back in the Sixties and Seventies, the challenge was even greater. Yet in this harsh environment, Sonia Pottinger proved time and again that talent and determination could overcome almost any obstacle, remaining one of Jamaica's leading record producers for two glorious decades. Unsurprisingly, Pottinger's High Note Records became a magnet for aspiring female talent during the golden age of reggae, with almost every female artiste of note looking to record for her esteemed label. Of these performers, Sonya Spence achieved significant success from the mid-Seventies through to the dawn of the 1980s, securing a series of hit singles and two best-selling albums. Since then, both "In The Dark" and "Sings Love" have become sought-after collectors' items among a wide spectrum of music fans, with her 'Let Love Flow On' 45 proving a particular favorite among soul connoisseurs. At last, both of these superb LPs have been brought together for this long overdue collection, which is further enhanced by 21 sublime Sonia Pottinger-produced female-led tracks from the period, 13 of which make their CD debut!
