Big Break Records, a U.K.-based label specializing in reissues of rare funk, soul and jazz titles, has released a special expanded edition of Cheryl Lynn’s 1982 album Instant Love. Produced by the late Luther Vandross, the platter boasted hits in the title track and the classic Lynn-Vandross duet “If This World Were Mine.”
My liner notes feature delightful insights from former CBS Records promotional guru Kenneth R. Reynolds, as well as historical research and in-depth commentary. Reynolds’ reflections on Lynn, Vandross and record making in the early eighties help paint a bright picture of a remarkable album and the era it represents.
