Martha Velez~Original US LP American heartbeat NM 1977 Blues Rock Pop 

Martha Velez

American heartbeat

Original US LP released in 1977 on Sire Records. Cat: SR6040. Comes with printed lyric inner bag which is in VG+ condition.  

Veléz released her debut blues-rock album Fiends And Angels on the Sire/Blue Horizon Records label in 1969; backing musicians included Eric Clapton, Stan Webb (Chicken Shack), and Paul Kossoff (Free) on guitar, Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac) on keyboards, Jack Bruce on bass and Brian Auger on organ. The album was produced by Mike Vernon. 1972 saw the release of her second album, Hypnotized, which is her only album not currently available on CD. In 1974, she released Matinee Weepers, a collection of adult-contemporary pop. In May 1975, she traveled to Jamaica for three weeks to record with reggae artist Bob Marley. She is the only American artist for whom Marley functioned as musical producer - the results were Escape From Babylon. Producer Craig Leon also greatly contributed to this association. He asked Marley about doing the album with her; Marley listened to her composition, "Living Outside the Law" from her 1972 album, Hypnotized, and felt a philosophical kinship. He also was impressed by her extraordinary voice. Marley's very positive response took them into the studio with his earlier producer Lee "Scratch" Perry to work on producing Escape From Babylon, released in 1976. The album also featured two Marley covers (Bend Down Low, Get Up, Stand Up) and a Veléz-Marley composing collaboration Disco Night. The songwriting credits were given to Rita Marley because of Marley's dispute with his publishers at the time.

Tracks : Up to you/ Oh no not my baby/ Why do you say it/ Draggin' your eyes/ We're gonna last/ Once in a while/ Leaving love that's good/ When you were beautiful/ No. 1 (Tajie's tune)/ Crossover. 

Record is in Near Mint condition. Cover has a small deletion cut on bottom right corner and a few light age spots and is in Excellent condition.
