Fake news…. OK, but what about “fake music”? Earlier this week several top US soul web sites and media were taken in by a “new” album by the legendary O’JAYS. LP in question was purported to be called ‘Too Imagine’ and it won good reviews. However, research (and O’Jays fans) reveal that the album is actually a recycled 2004 set originally called ‘Together We Are One’.
It seems that label, Music World Music have repackaged the set, re-titled it and even re-named all but one of the tracks to confuse fans into thinking the music is new! The only track that keeps the original name is the trio’s version of the standard ‘When Sunny Gets Blue’.
Would be interesting to know if Eddie and the boys knew about this; as ever, the moral is buyer beware!!!
