Info zu The New Adventures of...P.P. Arnold
Fünf Jahrzehnte nachdem sie mit zeitlosen Pop-Hits wie ‚The First Cut Is The Deepest‘ und ‚Angel Of The Morning‘ auf dem ultra-hippen Label vom Rolling Stones Manager-Andrew Oldham, Immediate, zur 60er Jahre-Ikone wurde, veröffentlicht Soul-Sängerin P.P. Arnold endlich ein Album voller neuem Material auf dem u.a. Paul Weller, Steve Cradock (Ocean Colour Scene), The Specials und P.P.s Songwriter-Sohn Kodzo mitwirken.
Das Album zelebriert PPs herausragende Karriere, während derer sie als Teil von The Ikettes bei Ike & Tina Turner Background sang, mit Mick Jagger, The Small Faces, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, Barry Gibb und Primal Scream aufnahm, und ihren markanten Backgroundgesang für Billy Ocean, Peter Gabriel, The KLF, Paul Weller und, vor Kurzem, Roger Waters, einsetzte – um nur ein paar Highlights zu nennen.
Die Anfänge des Albums gehen 25 Jahre, bis ins Jahr 1994, zurück. ‚The New Adventures…Of P.P. Arnold‘ hat von klassischem Orchester-Soul (‚Baby Blue’, ‚Finally Found My Way Back Home’), bis hin zu Sunshine-Pop (‚The Magic Hour’), House-Musik (‚Hold On To Your Dreams’), einem Gospel-Klagelied, das Gänsehaut auslöst und vom Tod ihrer Tochter inspiriert ist (‘I’ll Always Remember You’), zwei Paul Weller-Originalen (‘When I Was Part Of Your Picture’, ‘Shoot The Dove’) und einer epischen 10-Minuten-langen Interpretation von Bob Dylans Gedicht ‘The Last Thoughts On Woody Guthrie’ viele Facetten zu bieten. Damals landeten die ersten Ideen zunächst in der Schublade, weil P.P. Arnold mit Roger Waters auf Tournee ging. Als Cradock sie allerdings während eines Umzuges vor vier Jahren plötzlich wiederfand, wollten alle Beteiligten das Album unbedingt fertig stellen.
P.P. Arnold, Gesang
Los Angeles soul vocalist Pat (P.P.) Arnold emerged in the '60s as a back-up singer for Ike and Tina Turner. She soon struck out on her own, finding success in England with a string of chart hits including "The First Cut Is the Deepest" and "Angel of the Morning." After a stint on stage and screen, she experienced a brief revival in the '80s, scoring another U.K. hit with "Burn It Up." In addition to her own solo material, Arnold also worked with the Rolling Stones, Small Faces, Roger Waters, Oasis, Peter Gabriel, Boy George, the KLF, Nick Drake, Primal Scream, and many more.
Arnold grew up in a family of gospel singers and began singing as a four-year-old. She got her start backing Bobby Day before being invited to join the Ikettes backing Ike & Tina Turner. Arnold toured with them in the '60s, including one stint with the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger persuaded her to remain in London, and she later recorded for the Immediate label (then run by the Stones' manager Andrew Loog Oldham). Loog Oldham, Jagger, and Mike Hurst produced Arnold's debut LP, The First Lady of Immediate, in 1967, which included the single "The First Cut Is the Deepest," written by Cat Stevens and later popularized by Rod Stewart. Another album, Kafunta, arrived the next year and, in addition to her own compositions, featured her covers of tracks by the Beatles, Beach Boys, Bee Gees, and Rolling Stones.
In the late '60s, Arnold found moderate success with the singles "The Time Has Come," "(If You Think) You're Groovy," and "Angel in the Morning," the latter of which was a Top 30 hit in the U.K. She was also part of the cast for the play Catch My Soul in 1969, and subsequently acted in the television shows Fame and Knot's Landing, plus Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express. Arnold re-entered the music world in the mid-'80s, singing lead on a Boy George song for the film Electric Dreams in 1984 while on 10 Records. In 1985, she worked with Dexter Wansel and Loose Ends on the single "A Little Pain," which she recorded as Pat Arnold. She then had another English hit with the single "Burn It Up" on the Rhythm King label. The Beatmasters later produced her song "Dynamite." To close out the '80s, she teamed with Pressure Point on the collaborative effort This Is London (Viceroy Records). In the '90s, she added to her list of high-profile session contributions, featuring hit singles such as Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" and the KLF's "3 A.M. Eternal."
Arnold issued her entire Immediate output in 2001 on The First Cut: The Immediate Anthology and continued to tour throughout the decade. In 2017, her shelved, late-'60s Heritage recordings were released as The Turning Tide. The fabled set featured production and writing by Barry Gibb and Eric Clapton, as well as input from the Delaney & Bonnie Band and Rita Coolidge. She continued to tour into 2019, over 50 years into her career, releasing her fourth official album that summer. The New Adventures Of... was produced by Steve Cradock and included the single "Baby Blue." (Ron Wynn, AMG)
