Martine Girault – Revival (FFRR)

Born of Haitian ascendents, American singer Martine Girault started singing at the early age of 10 with her first stage appearance called ‘The Wiz’, prior to be studying at the High School of Music and Arts. She would relocate in the UK in the first half of the eighties, eventually doin’ a session as a backup vocalist for Amii Stewart at Opaz recording studio where she happened to meet producer Ray Hayden who offered her to become the first solo artist on his burgeoing label.
The rest is almost history, with both of them giving birth to this classic gem, delicately embedding influences from both Tom Scott & The L.A. Express‘s ‘Sneakin’ The Back’ and Bobby Byrd‘s ‘I Know You Got Soul’. A cut speaking of which Mickey P gave a quite interesting extensive review on The Soul Vendor back in 2009. With Soulpersona giving it a beautiful revamp a few months ago.
