MILLIEJACKSON

CAUGHT UP REMASTERED


#Caught Up# was a landmark album for Millie and for black American music. She had total artistic control on this album for the first time. It was also her first album to be recorded exclusively in the town that is akin to Mecca for all devotees of Southern Soul, Muscle Shoals. And more importantly, while it wasn#t soul music#s first ever concept album, it was inarguably the first one to look at three sides of a romantic triangle and put its main viewpoints across in such a frank and unexpurgated manner. It may also have been the first album to spawn a hit R&B #rap# when the six minute spoken section of Millie#s killer version of (If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don#t Want To Be Right introduced the listening public to Funky Drawers and breached the R&B Top 40 when issued as a #public demand# 45 after the album reached the Top 5. Above all, it consolidated Millie Jackson#s already pretty solid reputation as a first tier soulstress, and provided a benchmark for all subsequent endeavours of its kind to live up to. Millie is still very proud of #Caught Up# as she has every right to be. This refreshed, remastered and newly expanded version will appeal to those who have appreciated its brilliance for a long time and we#re confident that it will also bring a whole lot of new converts to Millie#s substantial fan army. (Oh yes, and let#s not forget the special bonus for all Northern Soul fans, Rob K#s specially mixed, vocal-less version of Millie#s perennial floorfiller A House For Sale.)
