  • Thelma Houston ~ Love Masterpiece 1978 Disco Purrfection Version

    10:03

    I was feeling uninspired the other day aso I pulled out Thank God It's Friday DVD, a 1978 disco movie from Neil Bogart. It got me motivated to clean up the Thelma Houston song Love Masterpiece and here it is.


    Thelma first exercised her considerable vocal talents in a gospel group called the Art Reynolds Singers. She was signed to ABC Dunhill records in 1969 and famed producer Jimmy Webb helmed the Sunshower LP. She signed to Motown in 1971, but the partnership did not produce any hits for her.

    In 1974 her single You've Been Doing Wrong for So Long which peaked at #64 on the R&B chart, and again nothing really attracted attention. She was also considered to play Dinah Washington, but the movie never materialized. She joined the tv program The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine that same year, but that fizzled out later on that summer.

    1975 had her record the first direct to disc single , I've Got the Music in Me which became the benchmark in audiophile recordings. She was the first to record Do You Know Where You're Going To, but lost support and the song went to Diana Ross to use in Mahogany. The woman has been beat down so many times, I cant believe she stuck it out anyway, a testament to the spirit of perseverance. She has admitted that this time was full of disappointments.

    Finally, Motown producer Hal Davis took her under his wing and suggested she record a new version of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes Don't Leave Me This Way. Davis used an arrangement similar to Diana Ross Love Hangover and created a volcanic version that topped the charts round the world. She had finally arrived!

    Love Masterpiece was Thelma Houston's contribution to the soundtrack of the 1978 movie Thank God It's Friday. Motown and Casablanca combined their efforts into creating a musical soundscape as a suitable backdrop for the episodic caper flick and they succeeded. The newest and bestest songs from Diana Ross, Donna Summer, The Commodores...I can imagine Donna Summer sharing the stage with The Commodores for a funky version of Bad Girls...now that could have been one funky throwdown! Of course, it did not happen.

    About a third of the music heard in the movie was not on the compilation soundtrack. In one scene when Love Masterpiece is playing, as soon as Thelma stops singing, the track broke down to an instrumental passage of 10 seconds or so but is interrupted by movie dialogue. The LP version was the single version and that is what I used here. Thelma had just spent six months on the Hot 100 with her #1 hit, Don't Leave Me This Way, so there was a lot of expectation that it would also do well.

    Casablanca spared no expense to promote the film, and that is saying something. The soundtrack sold nearly a million copies, but was seen as a poor man's Saturday Night Fever. Too bad, because they had nothing in commmon except that beat. The TGIF album is a disco delight, with a wide and varied selection of new songs, whereas Fever was padded out with a collection of previously released songs.

    Casablanca Records President, Neil Bogart wanted to overwhelm the Fever soundtrack, hoping to be the album that knocked them out of the #1 Album spot for the week ending July 1, 1978. Industry buzz indicated it would, and when Fever held on to the top spot for one more week, that dream was dashed on the rocks.

    The movie is not bad, Jeff Goldblum, Donna Summer and Teri Nunn did pretty good jobs even though there was not a lot for them to work with. I play the movie every now and then, the soundtrack still holds up, especially on a home theatre system where you can crank up the bass and be at the disco too!

    Thelma Houston blew into San Francisco as one of the First Ladies of Disco and performed at AidsWalk SF on July 14, 2019. And when I said blew in, I ain't kidding! Typical San Francisco day - it was cold and windy & the fog was low but not overwhelming.

    I was looking forward to her appearance. It would be my third time seeing her live and she always tore the house down...as she did on Motown 60 when it aired earlier this year.

    I love seeing Motown legends and this was no exception. She came on stage and did a medley of Motown hits from Stevie Wonder to The Supremes before she sang her classic #1 Disco hit.

    Don't Leave Me This Way was originally recorded by Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes and offered to Diana Ross to record, but the song was passed over because she just hit the top of the charts with her own disco hit, Love Hangover. That was good news for Thelma Houston who made this song, her own. Which was only fitting since Ms Houston recorded the original version of Do You Know Where You're Going To, but her version wasn't released as the song went to Diana Ross for her movie Mahogany. Poetic justice. The song eventually won Thelma Houston the Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female.

    The song was featured in the movie Looking For Mr Goodbar starring Richard Gere and Diane Keaton and was the 2nd, behind Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive, biggest dance hit of all time, according to Billboard Magazine.

    Don't Leave Me This Way was originally recorded by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes in 1975, featuring Teddy Pendergrass' lead vocal.

    The final Jimmy Webb song comes from, probably, the songwriter's creative highpoint. Released in 1969, you will be very familiar with the version of this song by Norman Connors (who named one of his fine albums after this song). Thelma Houston was a singer who was made for the pen of Jimmy Webb. Thelma could take a song to the 'show tune' border, but not ever cross over into that territory. This album was written, arranged and produced by Jimmy, and features the melodies 'Everybody Gets to Go To The Moon', 'Someone Is Standing Outside', 'Mixed Up Girl' (covered by Dusty), and this cracking ballad. 'This Is Your Life' was also recorded by the Fifth Dimension, and Tracy Hamlin (who recorded a great version of this song recently). For myself, this song represents one of the finest songs Jimmy Webb ever penned.

    Thelma Houston sang a medley tribute to celebrate Motown's 60th Anniversary. It's amazing that her former label under utilized this powerhouse singer who did a wonderful job singing some of Motown's greatest hits from The Temptation's Get Ready to The Supremes Baby Love and Marvin Gaye's I Heard It Through The Grapevine. She was the show stealer at the Motown 60 television special and at Aidwalk San Francisco she showed us why.

    John Morales is no stranger to the compilation format, with long running UK imprint BBE serving up a great series of archival releases based around the New York disco icon's classic extended mixes. Here Morales digs through the sizeable archives of Motown to present a weighty 20 track selection of the label's dancefloor hits. The focus on Club Motown Volume 1 is squarely on the label's prodigious '80s output and features a pleasing mixture of stand out classics such as Lionel Ritchie's All Night Long and the iconic Rockwell heater Somebody's Watching Me alongside some lesser known gems all presented in extended 12 mix glory. Extra intrigue for Morales fans is present in the shape of six new and exclusive mixes from Morales including thundering takes on Teena Marie and Tate Vega. Includes in-depth, track-by-track liner notes co-written by John Morales and edited by Motown head honcho, Harry Wiengar
