Hutson returns with his second 7″ single on Acid Jazz Records, this time recorded in 1982 it see’s the master veer into boogie territory. Another exclusive Acid Jazz Hutson 7″, backed with the evergreen ‘Get To This (Get To Me)’, both tracks making their first appearance on a 7 inch.
‘Positive Forces’ has now sold out – we reckon this one will too.

Acid Jazz are proud to announce the next step in our exploration of Leroy Hutson’s catalogue. “Anthology 1972-84” is the essential collection of his work from his classic era.
Eddie Piller: “Leroy is one of the fundamental influences on my career, his music is era defining, and to be working with him and this music is a realisation of a dream that I have tried to make a reality for over 25 years”. Released on the 20th October 2017.

Acid Jazz is proud to announce that it has entered a long term licensing deal with soul legend Leroy Hutson.
Hutson, long revered on the soul scene for his production, songwriting and perfromace skills, was Curtis Mayfield’s heir apparent chosen by the great man, to replace him in the Impressions, and then groomed for an extensive solo career on Curtis own label, Curtom.
The Hutson catalogue has not been available on any format for nearly two decades. The label will be working with Leroy and his team to create the definitive sounding masters, and unearthing lost gems from his extensive archive.
First out of the traps is a double sided limited edition 45 containing two previously unreleased Hutson gems. The A-side is a previously unreleased 1977 recording, which is making its debut on this single. It is coupled with the unreleased full length instrumental of ‘All Because Of You’.
– Positive Forces
– All Because Of You (Instrumental)
Released on the 23rd June 2017
