Thelma Houston's Sunshower CD Available online

Thelma Houston will always be remembered for her #1 '77 disco anthem "Don't Leave Me This Way". But this outstanding vocalist's career did not begin in 1977. Master composer Jimmy Webb ( MacArthur Park, By The Time I Get To Phoenix) wrote and produced 11 of the 12 songs on this highly acclaimed yet seldom purchased (when initially released) album that yielded no top forty hits nor an entry into Billboard's top 100 albums. Over the years mainly through word of mouth interest has grown. This collection of fabulous material should have been a best seller. There is a rousing rendition of Jagger and Richard's "Jumpin' Jack Flash"(which was released as a single). There is also the poignant "Pocketful Of Keys" and the haunting title tune among others. This 1969 release is available on CD or vinyl online at
