Kerri Chandler - My Old Friend

Flash Forward is happy to repress one of Kerri Chandler's most beautiful records. ''Black Vinyl label boss Alan Russell first met Kerri when Alan was writing for ECHOES magazine and Kerri was signed (by A&R man Johnnie Walker) to Champion Records in the UK. Alan was interviewing Dee Dee Brave at a hotel in West London as part of the promotion for her album on Champion which was released in 1991. Alan was already familiar with Kerri's work such as 'Superlover' and 'Set If Off' and with his productions on Movin Records, so asked about Kerri and when told that he was also in London as part of the Dee Dee's tour, the two met and began talking. Kerri was slightly surprised that Alan knew all of his early releases and the two bonded. They met again in New York when Alan was attending the NMS (precursor to the WMC in Miami) and stayed in touch. Years later when Alan had started Black Vinyl the two met again and Alan asked if Kerri would do something for his label. Kerri soon delivered a DAT containing these three tracks. The track 'My Old Friend' was originally titled 'For My Old Friend Alan', which Alan shortened so it would look better on the label! The rest, as they say, is history.''
