Gwen Guthrie – Good To Go Lover

Deluxe re-issue of the Gwen Guthrie’s Top 20 US R&B album which spawned the dance/soul hit ‘Outside In The Rain’ and a potent reading of the Bacharach-David classic, ‘(They Long To Be) Close To You’. Centred around the now-classic dance and soul anthem ‘Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent’, her debut album ‘Good To Go Lover’ followed the song’s huge international success, a #1 US R&B and Top 50 pop hit. Featuring four bonus tracks including the non-album B-side, ‘Save Your Love For Me’, a duet with Surface. Including notes by renowned US writer Justin Kantor with quotes from ‘Pic’ Conley and musician Onaje Allen Gumbs. Already established as a songwriter of note (thanks to hits by Ben E King, Roberta Flack and Angela Bofill) and an in-demand New York City session and jingle singer, Oklahoma-born, New Jersey-raised Gwen Guthrie began her own solo recording career in 1981. Dubbed “The First Lady Of The Paradise Garage” (the popular New York gay club) as a result of her dynamic performances at the venue, dance hits such as 1985’s ‘Padlock’ and work with reggae musicians/producers Sly And Robbie helped establish Gwen as a hit-maker in her own right.
