Mary Stevens – Find Your Love

Another first timer on 7″, Backatcha Records delivers a sweet disco cut nicely done by Mary Stevens with “Find Your Love”. Featured on the A-side is the Boyd Jarvis & Timmy Regisford remix with the Sean P original edit on the flip.  A stone cold dance classic and an essential for the crates, highly recommended!

“I wrote and sung the song as a demo originally” says singer-songwriter and producer Beverley Hanshaw “My friend Mary and I used to sing together and she asked me for the track and we recorded a version. My husband at the time Frank Owens who played piano got all the musicians together to record the session”

Conductor-arranger-pianist Frank Owens had already worked as a musical director for many artists such as Petula Clark, Lena Horne, Freda Payne, Melba Moore and John Denver and had access to the best session musicians in New York.

Recorded in 1983, for a one-off debut release by an independent the credits are impressive. Brian Brake on drums, David Spinozza on guitar, Jimmy Smith on synths, Victor See Yuen on percussion… all established jazz sessionists in their prime.
