Album Review

Originally issued in March 1977, Loleatta was the singer's debut release for Philly soul guitarist Norman Harris' Goldmine label distributed by NY-based Salsoul Records. It was both produced in Chicago by her husband Floyd Smith and in Philadelphia through Baker-Harris-Young Productions.

A Satoshi Tomiie remix of "Dreamin'" issued by Salsoul/The Right Stuff/EMI topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart on December 9, 2000.
