Samantha Sang - Emotion (1978)

VS-88002


*New Remaster April 2014

1978 / Private Stock / PVLP 1039
The Bee Gees were so prolific as songwriters that some of their best songs were given to other artists in the seventies, and Samantha Sang is essentially a one-hit wonder with Emotion, a fantastic Gibb ballad that defines their latter-seventies work as much as anything from Saturday Night Fever. The whole album is a gem, and as the master tapes were destroyed this hasn't been released in remastered CD form ever - listen to my restoration of the above and tell me if you can find a better version anywhere!

Only the US master tapes held by Private Stock Records were destroyed, but the album was licensed to that label; they didn't own it. All tracks from the album have been remastered from another set of tapes and appear on the 2-CD Australian set "Samantha Sang: The Ultimate Collection", which is basically all of her three albums ("Emotion", "From Dance to Love" and "Samantha Sang and Rocked the World") and available from some Australian CD retailers.

deege unfortunately you are mistaken. I own that 2CD and it's a poor job and the three albums have clearer been recorded from vinyl - lots of pops and clicks and crackle. They should have asked me for a master!

Hi VS,

I am going for this now, but I wish it was another file host as this one is taking ages, not only that but I need to wait 30 mins for each file, that I don't mind, but the long delay downloading is just frustrating, can megaupload be used perhaps? especially as it is flac.

Oh and I forgot to ask, why were the master tapes destroyed? what's the story behind this?

I'm a massive fan of the Bee Gees, and this is a gap in my collection.

Sadly, the files have been removed from the links shared. Could you please add some new ones. I would highly appreciate it.

Raph you are correct and I apologize for my error. Her web site now has a disclaimer about the 2CD set.
