Queen of the Night [Import]
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this album from the Disco diva. Loleatta Holloway was a Dance music legend. Her amazing vocal talents gained her the reputation as one of the premier vocalists of Soul and Dance music during the 70s and 80s. Holloway started her singing career with Queen of Gospel, Albertina Walker (and her Caravans) before striking out on her own. She released her first single "Rainbow 71 on the fledgling Apache label before moving to Aware to record her first two albums prior to her work with Gold Mind/Salsoul. QUEEN OF THE NIGHT, released in 1978 on Gold Mind/Salsoul Records, was the follow up to her breakthrough LP for the label in 1976, simply titled Loleatta and re-united her with Salsoul stalwart Norman Harris who took on the production duties. With QUEEN OF THE NIGHT being the singers second LP for this Disco dominated label it confirmed her transformation from Southern Soul songstress to Disco royalty.
