May 3 street date. Caroline's Crawford's career first began at the age of 15 on Motown Records where she recorded loads of songs but released relatively few of them. She re-surfaced on Philadelphia International in the early 70s with one brilliant single and a completely unreleased album, which stayed in the can as a result of disagreements with Gamble & Huff. An uncompromising singer, she teamed up with Hamilton Bohannon and sang background on his hits "South African Man", "Foot Stomping Music" and "Summertime Groove". Bohannon wrote, produced, arranged and directed the seven cuts on 'My Name Is Caroline'. All Music Guide's Andrew Hamilton writes: "his (Bohannon) patented rhythmic, shuffling sound interspersed with some ballads make this an extension of his 'Summertime Groove' album which featured Crawford's vibrant vocals. This is good.
Mercury's neglect kept this album from improving their bottom line or Crawford's career". A classic soul album from a very underrated singer!
