Dream or Cry on 7Inch Single

Coming from the legendary composer, producer and founder of Motown Records after hearing Chris Clark's first recording in over 30 years, that's a pretty cool comment. Clark, the first female white artist ever to record an album for Motown, enjoyed cult success in the 1960s with her singles "Love's Gone Bad" and "I Want to Go Back There Again", along with the "Soul Sounds" album, re-released on CD by P&C's sister label Reel Music. From singing, Chris moved to an executive role at Motown, was nominated for an Oscar for co-writing the screenplay to the blockbuster movie "Lady Sings Blues" starring Diana Ross and ended up a Vice President at Motown Films. More recently, she enjoyed great success in 2009's "Divas of Motown" concerts at London's Jazz Cafe and Hammersmith's Apollo. For this new single, Clark worked with a number of well-known musicians including members of the Tower of Power horn section. The result is three new recordings, all of which show that Chris Clark still has her vocal chops intact. The Christine Cale song "Dream Or Cry" has a vintage 1970s feel to it, whilst the old Diana Ross MOR album cut "Sleepin'" comes alive with it's tale of a lover who od's on heroin. The CD EP features a neat cover of the 1960s R&B obscurity "Hang It Up", written by Chess Records' Bobby Miller. Both 7" and CD are released in individual picture sleeves.
