Lou Courtney

I'm In Need Of Love (2018 remaster)

Soul Brother Records


Released: 13th Jul 2018


his Epic 1974 album  is regarded by some as the best modern soul album ever made; therefore, this is truly deserving of the reissue treatment, complete with two bonus cuts.

Best known for the rare groove tracks “I Don’t Need Nobody Else” and “What Do You Want Me To Do”, this is New York soul at its best. Great strings, horns and sympathetic production back Lou’s emotive and soulful vocals expressing his lyrics to the full. Lou was a Detroit artist who established himself in the 60s where he first worked as a writer and producer with Barbara Lewis. In the 70s he was signed as an artist to legendary producer Jerry Ragovoy’s Rags label through Epic. Hereafter, he was briefly a member of The Fifth Dimension.
