Hi,I'm writing to let you know that Willie Wright, whose 1978 classic LP "Telling the Truth" was re-issued by Chicago re-issue label Numero Group last year, has made a brand new album called “This is Not a Dream.” You can hear all the new tunes here: http://www.myspace.com/willie_wright and can buy the album directly from the artist at www.williewrightmusic.comThe re-issue got very positive response from soul fans and new listeners; "Good Morning America" featured one of the tunes ("I'm So Happy") from it on May 7, 2011, and the first pressing sold out in a matter of weeks. All of this is what has inspired Willie to ease temporarily out of retirement, assemble a new band with some old friends in Burlington, Vermont, and craft his first studio album in 34 years.He is now 73 and copes with advanced Parkinson's, but can still make arrestingly beautiful music with thoughtful lyrics. His "smooth as warm butter" voice is still powerful, even though at the same time, it reveals a more fragile and emotional side than in his early career. This new record was released by Green Coil Records in Burlington, Vermont on April 24, 2012. Given that he is not able to gig or tour in support of the album, we are depending on reviews and word of mouth to promote it - please give a listen and let us know what you think!
