Sade Side Project's 1996 Debut Remastered & Pressed on Vinyl for the First Time in Celebration of Its 20th Anniversary!
Sweetback, the band's eponymous debut album celebrates it's 20th anniversary in 2016 and in honor of this milestone it's being reissued on vinyl for the first time, freshly remastered, on double LP. Sweetback featured Stuart Matthewman (guitar, saxophone), Andrew Hale (piano, keyboards), and Paul Spencer Denman (bass), musicians primarily known for their work in their band Sade, which formed in London in 1983. Following the conclusion of Sade's Love Deluxe World Tour in 1994, Matthewman, Hale, and Denman set up their own jazz/funk/R&B ensemble project in New York, and the group's eponymous debut album was released on Epic Records in October 1996. Guest artists on Sweetback include Maxwell, Bahamadia, and Amel Larrieux of Groove Theory.
