(OSCD012) MICHAEL VALVANO'S CONTOURS I'm A Winner
OUTTA SIGHT presents the complete Solid Gold/Val-West Recordings.
The first ever release for this stellar soul album recorded in Albuquerque, New Mexico, circa 1979. Originally written and produced by Michael Valvano for Lou West’s Solid Gold Records and – two decades later – issued on the eclectic Outta Sight logo.
Michael Valvano was one of the first white acts signed to Motown, aged just seventeen, with his band Mike & The Modifiers. Valvano worked with many acts at Hitsville and also recorded two solo albums which sadly never saw a release. This project showcases his rounded musical talents creating a fluid, soulful, masterpiece that reflects the soul/disco/funk style of the late 70s with a nod at its 60s roots.
