(1995, EMI London)

'Mama, I Want To Sing' CD (1995, EMI)

This 1995 London Cast Recording of 'Mama I Want To Sing' has to be
one of the rarest Chaka Khan items EVER!! Chaka is featured on 4
great songs, and if you ever wondered how she would sound singing
gospel music, you need to hear her wail away on this import CD.
Also featured is the late Doris Troy, and the play is partly based
on her life. Also in the London cast is the talented Stacy Francis,
who has some serious 'pipes'. Stacy was once a member of the
Full Force produced girl group 'Ex-Girlfriend' during the early
90's. I really enjoy listening to this CD, and it was produced
by the legendary Nick Martinelli, who has a fine track record
in R & B. This import CD has been officially 'out of print' for
years, and copies usually appear on Ebay from time to time!!
*NEW FOR 2005* To honor the 10 year anniversary of the
'Mama, I Want To Sing' CD, we remastered it , and included
ULTRA RARE live material from the play!!
