Even disregarding his recording of two of the most iconic Blaxploitation soundtracks ever made, The Mack and Foxy Brown, Willie Hutch has an incredible legacy. He was one of Motown's top five male solo artists in the 70s, releasing eight albums with them in that decade and writing songs for the Jackson 5, Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye. It was Soul Portrait, his debut studio album released through RCA, that got Motown's attention. He wrote, arranged and conducted every song on the album and it's bursting with his own Southern-styled, funk-fuelled soul, with minor-key masterpiece 'A Love That's Worth Having' at its core – it was sampled by Madlib on Stones Throw's Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton and by 9th Wonder on the Murs classic 'Dreamchaser'. Officially licensed and remastered for vinyl by Simon Francis, Soul Portrait has been pressed on 180g vinyl for the first time and features original artwork and liner notes.
