Oleta Adams / Circle of One 2CD Deluxe
Circle of One 2CD deluxe
American soul, jazz, gospel singer Oleta Adams was discovered by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, of Tears for Fears, while she was performing in a hotel bar in Kansas City, Missouri while they were on a US tour.
Two years later, they contacted her to invite her to join their band as a singer and pianist on their next album, The Seeds of Love.
In 1989, the album was released and the single "Woman in Chains", sung as a duet by Adams and Orzabal. Adams embarked on a world tour with Tears For Fears in 1990, performing by herself as the supporting artist at the start of each show, and remaining onstage throughout the Tears For Fears set where she would provide piano and vocals. Following her work with Tears for Fears, Adams was offered a recording contract by their label, Fontana Records, and restarted her solo career in 1990, assisted by Orzabal, who co-produced her new album, Circle of One.
The album received much critical acclaim, and eventually peaked at #1 in the UK in 1991 after she scored her biggest hit to date with her Grammy nominated cover of Brenda Russell's "Get Here".
This re-issue of the album contains all the B-Sides as well as a selection of 12” mixes, the booklet written by SuperDeluxeEdition's Paul Sinclair has new interviews about the record with Oleta, as well as producers Roland Orzabal and Dave Bascombe.
