ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paul Ranger grew up in Brooklyn New York but, he was born on the Island of Jamaica WI. It was a time in New York when the Manhattans, The stylistics, The Chi-Lites, Larry Graham, Lou Rawls, Barry White and many more were “hot” on the radio. He enjoyed trying to sing in the falsetto style of the Chi-Lites(“Have You Seen Her”) and other groups like them. His music is influenced by the music of that era and later. Although the sounds of a by-gone era was ringing in his ears when he wrote the songs for “Love Things”, he tried not to sound too “old school” therefore he mixed it with today’s influences. Whether he has succeeded or not, is up to the public.

At the age 15 he was playing trumpet in a local band called the “Music Masters” whose members including Paul, hoped to hit the “big time.” That hope was dashed however, when the band broke up. He stayed away from music for many years. Then in his thirties he met the Artist, keyboardist, and producer named Sam Archer. Sam convinced him to revive his dream of recording again. Sam became his producer for this debut cd and co-writer of track 2 (Something Something)

Paul’s musical taste was, and is not limited to R&B/Soul. For example, he would also listen to country music and soft rock of the 70s and 80,s and, because he was born in Jamaica WI, reggae music was definitely a must on his list. Although he denies it, others say they hear a country music influence in his songs, which was unintentional. However, what was certainly intentional was the placing of two reggae style track on the “Love Things” CD. He thought, just in case he never get a chance to record again, he wanted the music from his birth place to be included although it was not a reggae album. There is also a song from the 1950s “Pledging My Love” he likes the music from that time as well, even though it was before he was born.
It would be ok to describe Paul Ranger’s “Love Things” as easy Listening R&B/Soul with a slight touch of country and maybe light classic rock. One person describes it as, music to listen to as you take a drive in the country on a Sunday afternoon.

.
Paul Ranger would like to record more music in the future but the style will be more focused depending on which tracks the public favors. It appears that they prefer “Who’s That Girl.”
