Information

Loleatta Holloway (born in Chicago,1946) was an American R&B-Disco singer known for her massive hit songs such as “Hit and Run”, “Love Sensation” and “Relight My Fire”, all of which have been sampled extensively worldwide. Billboard magazine ranked her as the 95th most successful dance artist of all-time. Holloway first began her career singing gospel music, then in the early 70s, she met her future producer,
manager (and husband) Floyd Smith which kick-started her impressive recording career. Shortly after Holloway signed with the Atlanta-based soul music label ‘Aware’ where she recorded two albums: Loleatta (1973) and Cry to Me. Fast & slow-paced grooves, blazing horns accompanying the driving rhythm section, female backing
vocalists soaring in unison, chiming guitars … and of course Loleatta’s explosively powerful and joyful vocals make this a fantastic (and dance-floor friendly) album. Holloway really brings the tracks & arrangements (penned by a number of hugely talented songwriters) to life using a combination of emotion, passion and power.
