NEW REV-OLA COMPILATION CD BY PATTI DAHLSTROM!

March 22, 2010

Before there was an Eva Cassidy, before there was a Selena, or Leona Lewis there was Patti Dahlstrom!

 

When my friend singer/songwriter Patti Dahlstrom, moved to London two years ago to get her masters at London University, I introduced her to some people I knew. You can imagine how good I felt when Mick Patrick of Rev-Ola records wanted to put out a compilation CD of her four US albums.

 

Patti is one of the most talented singer songwriters I ever worked with and when I was General Professional Manager at Warner Brothers music in the ‘70s, I gave her a French song “Amorouse” (Sanson), to write an English lyric to. When Patti recorded and released it as “Emotion” (Sanson/Dahlstrom) every body thought it sounded like a hit! http:artiewayne.com/emotion.html

 

Unfortunately, “Emotion” wasn’t a hit for Patti, but less than a year later, Helen Reddy covered it and took it to the Top Twenty. Patti’s CD has some real undiscovered gems like,”He Did Me Wrong, But He Did Me Right” which could be a hit for Sade, who’s back on the charts. “Letting Go”, and “Cleveland Snow” are also standouts.

 

I’m especially proud to be included in this collection with a song I wrote with Patti for our friend the Late Jim Croce the night his plane crashed. Here’s a video Patti and Wedigo Watson just created for “Sending My Good Thoughts To You.”

    Hello Artie,
    I have posted before, but just in case you did not see that post here is another one….

    Patti was my teacher at The Art Institute of Houston. She always had a kind spirit. She may not remember me, it has been several years, but I have wonderful memories of her. I am glad to know that she is doing well.

    I will pick up a copy of her new album soon!

    Take care!
