Still one of my all-time favorite albums:  

Angie, by Angela Bofill, released in 1978. I believe this LP was originally released by GRP Records and (perhaps) re-released by Arista Records, as I recall.

In 2001, I copied this album to CD from vinyl. I still enjoy listening to that CD today.

The complete collection, digitally remastered, can be found at YouTube.


Side A:

1. Under the Moon and Over the Sky
2. This Time I'll Be Sweeter
3. Baby, I Need Your Love
4. Rough Times

Side B:

1. The Only Thing I Would Wish For
2. Summer Days
3. Share Your Love
5. Children of the World United
