Originally released on Cotillion Records, this seminal record is being made available commercially for the first time in over forty years in CD and Vinyl formats.

June 1976 saw the introduction of Luther, Luther Vandross’s debut album, marking a significant milestone in the R&B genre. This album not only showcased Vandross’s unparalleled vocal prowess but also highlighted his talents as a songwriter and producer. Among its hits, "Funky Music (Is A Part Of Me)" gained particular fame when it was reimagined by Vandross and David Bowie, emerging as "Fascination" on Bowie’s legendary 1975 album Young Americans, where Vandross also contributed to background vocals and arrangements. Luther also includes the track “Everybody Rejoice (A Brand New Day),” a key song in the 1975 Tony Award-winning Best Musical "The Wiz" and its 1978 film adaptation. This re-release offers the only available recording of Vandross's unique performance of this iconic song.
