Cooleyhighharmony is the debut album from Boyz II Men. The album includes the Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 Singles, ''Motownphilly'' and ''It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday''. Cooleyhighharmony has been certified 9x Platinum by the RIAA for shipments of over 9 million units in the US. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of this classic, UME will be reissuing this title back on standard weight vinyl for the first time in over 20 years.
''II'' is the second studio from Boyz II Men. It contains the No. 1 singles ''I'll Make Love to You'' and ''On Bended Knee,'' the latter of which replaced the former at No. 1, making the group the third artist to replace themselves at No. 1. ''II'' was the third best-selling album in 1995, it sold 12 million copies in the United States and won Best R&B Album. Continuing with its Respect The Classics campaign, UME will be reissuing this classic album back on standard weight vinyl.
Erykah Badu's third studio album further cements her status as the most intelligently and politically-provocative female R&B artist recording today. She's also perhaps the most sophisticated, melding classic soul styles to hip-hop production values- the same genre-breaking attitude epitomized by the late Nina Simone.
Marvin Gaye's 1976 album I Want You marked a change in direction for Gaye as he traded in his signature Motown soul for lush, funky, light disco and its subject matter was as close to explicit as pop records got at the time. While not as successful sales-wise as his previous landmark albums What's Going On and Let's Get It On, I Want You became Gaye's fourth top ten album on the Billboard 200 and his fifth number-one album on the R&B chart.

Two new versions of Marvin Gaye's ''What's Going On'' featured on a four-track, 10-inch vinyl EP. The 10-inch contains a new duet version featuring Marvin Gaye and Motown artist BJ The Chicago Kid as well as an unplugged ''Coffeehouse'' mix of the original Marvin Gaye version, using bare parts, particularly a formerly buried acoustic guitar, from the original session. The top side of the 10-inch includes the original mono single versions of ''What's Going On.''
Marvin Gaye's landmark 1971 recording What's Going On is one of the most important and passionate soul records ever made and it directly influenced other artists to take greater responsibility in the meaning of their music. Gaye co-wrote the songs and produced the album, a social commentary on an American dream which was increasingly being threatened by urban and environmental problems including unemployment and poverty. What's Going On broke the Motown mold and introduced Gaye as not only the label's sexy prince, but also an uncompromising artist with something to say.
Songs in the Key of Life was the culmination of a historic period of creativity for Stevie Wonder. An ambitious double LP with a four-song bonus EP, Songs in the Key of Life became among the best-selling and most critically acclaimed albums of Wonder's career. In 2003, it was ranked number 57 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In the same year, it was preserved into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress, which called it "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
The package features Braille inscriptions originally available only on the album's rare first pressing. Talking Book is the fifteenth album by Stevie Wonder. 'You Are the Sunshine of My Life', hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and earned Stevie his first Grammy Award. The album's first single, 'Superstition', also hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and Hot Soul Singles charts. This reissue is newly remastered from original analog.
The soundtrack for director Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing is a window into the classics hip-hop/R&B scene circa 1989. Peppered with "new jack" era slabs of wax from the likes of Public Enemy (the iconic "Fight the Power"), summer party staples from E.U. ("Party Hearty") and Teddy Riley ("My Fantasy"), and deep slow jams from Perri and Al Jarreau, it's the perfect background for a hot night in the city, and like the film itself, it's both frivolous and foreboding.
