Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Hamilton
Billy Paul was obviously a big fan of Gloria Lynne; you can hear Lynne's phrasing and vocal inflections in the singer's '70s recordings. And what a singer to pattern yourself after. Lynne's creamy alto is luscious and soothing; play one of her albums at the first sign of a headache and "the voice" might cure your pain without aspirin or Tylenol. Whether singing to soft guitar strums on "Blue Afternoon," bodacious brass on "Some of These Says," or in cozy clubs as she does on two live cuts -- "Somewhere in the Night" and "For You" -- Lynne's calming vocals and meticulous phrasing are awesome. An album for lovers, when love is new.

    soul wrenching a delight

    I am so glad to find Ms. LYNNE . I first remembered her for SOUL SERENADE as a youngster it has haunted me for years and i finally found it at BEVERLY RECORDS and it has truly bought me a great deal of joy. Her music truly touches my soul.I have shared her music with as many people as i could and they all feel that she must be a woman of class and they also think that she must be a new artist thank you!!!
