UK collection from the Grammy-winning song stylist focusing on her mid to late '70s recordings for the CTI label. Patti's debut for CTI, End Of A Rainbow, was conceived after she played demos of songs she'd written (but originally never planned to record) for arranger Bill Eaton who in turn played them for his production partner percussionist Ralph MacDonald. After MacDonald let Creed Taylor hear some of the songs, Patti began recording what would become her much-acclaimed debut set for the label which featured eight original Austin compositions including the U.S. R&B charted single, 'Say You Love Me' and 'Sweet Sadie The Savior' (also recorded by Blood, Sweat & Tears). The 1976 LP (with some of New York's top session players) became a U.S. Top 40 jazz charted album and is included in its entirety on this SoulMusic Records' compilation drawn from Patti's four years with CTI.
