ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Helen Rogers' smooth, sweet vocals are unique and have an instantly recognisable sound as they create a fusion of the Lovers Rock, Funk and Jazz genres which she has a real passion for.

Helen began her singing career with South London based record label TNT which specialised in Reggae music and spawned such home grown Lovers Rock talent as Eric Gordon, Deborahe Glasgow and UK Reggae chart toppers Natural Touch.
In 1982 she joined Brit Funk outfit Direct Drive as lead vocalist and together they enjoyed Black Echoes Soul Chart top 10 hits with ‘ In the Middle of Spring’ and ‘Pass the Paper'. In 1984 they achieved a UK Soul Chart No 1 hit with ‘Anything’…..’ described as "one of the best, and indeed, most successful British records around…it’s one of the most heavily played tracks on radio, the most danced to record around London" (Blues and Soul magazine Jan 22- Feb 4 1985). ‘Anything’ remained soul No 1 for 8 weeks, Direct Drive signed to Polydor Records and charted nationally.

In 1986 Helen provided vocals on Paul Hardcastle’s remix of Third World’s Reggae classic ‘Now That We Found Love’ which charted nationally at no 22.
In 1987 Helens’ Lovers Rock cover of Tina Turners hit ‘What’s Love Got To With It’ achieved top 10 status in the Jamaican Reggae Chart. This was followed up by a Lovers Rock version of Smokey Robinson’s “Tracks Of My Tears”. Here, Helen duets with Black Steel to produce another top ten hit in the Jamaican Chart.

A year later Helen collaborated with Paul Hardcastle once again his remake of Junior Walker's ‘Walk in the Night’ which charted nationally. This was the track that sowed the seeds for the hugely successful ‘Jazzmasters’ series ...The award winning 5 album project Helen co wrote with Hardcastle, also providing all the vocals.
In 2008 Helen released her first solo E.P..... Eyes Like Midnight..... which was a musical departure for Helen and displayed her unique vocal and song writing talent. Along with the musical virtuosity of Tony Qunta , this project allowed Helen to fuse together her influences from many genres including Jazz, Jazz Funk and Lovers Rock.
Now Helen has revisted her Lovers Rock beginnings with Let Me Be Your Angel.... a song that she has wanted to cover for quite some time.... Produced by Lindel Lewis ....and is releasing it as a single so that fans of this brand of Smooth Lovers Rock can revisit a beautiful song........Beautifully sung!

Helen Rogers Does It Again !
I love this song and its a blessing to be able to hear it again sung by someone who can give it the justice it deserves, Helen Rogers. The smooth perfection of Helen's voice brings a refreshing upgraded version to the song. Anyone who hears this, must smile and reminisce, a brilliant song choice revived by a wonderful artist. A Must Have ! If you ask me, a welcomed addition to anyones music collection.
