This week, the focus is on a goodie from another smart reissue by the UK label, Cherry Red Records. For the first time ever on compact disc, this enterprising independent record label re-released the rare, self-titled album by soul/R&B legends, The Miracles. Originally cut on Columbia Records in 1978, the October 2012 cd, The Miracles, became a sought-after item by fans and soul music lovers alike for its very limited availability generated by a dispute between the group and Columbia Records’ executives. Consequently, The Miracles was released only in The Netherlands with a few import copies making their way to the US where the album never officially saw the light of day.
