Mark IV

Welcome to this weeks Science of Soul, Featured Album this week comes from Mark IV, and is a collection that never had a release back in the day. It's really quite amazing because there are some real quality tunes on it ... to good not to share with you,  hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Mr consistent Ty Causey is back with a new set due for release in August, listening to "Mr Mellow" it's exactly what you expect from Ty, real quality. Other new music this week comes from Roosevelt Wade with his single "Haters" getting a lot of attention, as are the latest products from Amina Buddafly, Sharena Wynn, Jayna Blackwell and the UK soul lady Jaki Graham seems like it's ladies week this week ... no complaints from me, lol.

Watts in London
Also from Great Briton is Natasha Watts and she is due to release a new album in September, this lady's popularity continues to grow. I have to say she did a great job opening for the O'Jays in London last weekend, so can't wait for the album. For the old school folks listen out for Alex Brown her classic 1970 album "In Search Of Love" as just been reissued and it's a must have in your collection. We have a little bonus this week if you scroll down you can watch The Brenda Perryman Show from last week when she did a great Interview with Undisputed Truth who have a new album almost completed and trust me it's pretty special. Ok enough from me sit back enjoy the music and remember to spread the word.

Mark IV information
Mark IV under the tutelage of Roy C released one great album on Mercury Records in 1973 before being dropped by the label. This change in fortunes brought forward partners Otis Brown Jr and Donald Shaw to take over from Roy with the management of the group between 1974-78. The songs featured on this album were all recorded during these years and had sat on reel to reel tapes gathering dust until 2017 when a partnership was forged between Otis, Donald & Cordial Recordings to release them. We hope that you enjoy listening to this album as much as we have had since first listening to the original demo tapes. Time to ‘make room for the Mark IV’ again Julian!”

Cordial Recordings are proud to announce the release of our first album on Vinyl & CD with this collection of previously unreleased songs by Mark IV. The songs have been remastered to provide full listening experience. The CD comes with two bonus songs. The vinyl & CD release have been limited to 500 copies each. The vinyl sleeve has been printed on luxury heavyweight board. The CD has been printed as a 4pp Digipak with clear tray on luxury heavyweight board. (firstexperiancerecords)
