Cry to Me is a total classic…both the album (and the title track) peaked in the R&B and Billboard Hot Soul Singles charts. Cry To Me was produced by Floyd Smith and it features tracks penned by some of the most talented songwriters of the time…Sam Dees (Gladys Knight, Bo Diddley, Aretha Franklin) wrote five of the tracks on the album and his arrangements provide the perfect backdrop for Loleatta's emotive, dramatic and powerful vocals.Curtis Mayfield also contributes the magnificent Just Be True track and Jo Armstead (Ray Charles, Syl Johnson, Tina Turner) wrote the beautiful 'Casanova' song.

This record is a soul masterpiece extraordinaire…fantastic piano plays accompanied by chiming guitars, swirling strings, a powerful rhythm section and gospel tinged backing vocals. Loleatta's vocals are devastatingly sad, as she sings about her relationship breaking up and the pain and sadness it's caused her. She just sings her heart out… it's almost impossible to listen to the album without getting caught up in the emotion.Loleatta roars defiantly, using all of her strength to deliver this classic slice of Southern Soul music.

Originally released in 1975, Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the first official reissue of Loleatta's classic Cry to Me album. Remastered from the original master tapes by Ginn Music Group-Aware Records and if features the original album cover designed by Ruby Mazur (Pharoah Sanders, Sun Ra, John Lee Hooker).
