Favorite Recordings is proud to present this self-titled album by Life Force, an amazing piece of funk with a twist of pop, disco and blue-eyed soul, now reissued for the first time. Originally released in 1976 on Strawberry Records and produced by Randy Irwin (The Shirelles, Family Circle, Ecstasy, Passion & Pain), Life Force has since become a real target for international vinyl diggers, thanks mostly to its main single, "Slow Dancer." When Pascal Rioux (founder of Favorite Recordings) found a mint copy, he quickly realized it had a lot more to offer than just one track and thus searched for more info. The first person who could provide a few more details about the band and Strawberry was Ron Foster, ex-bassist of Ecstasy, Passion & Pain, and producer of Lee McDonald, which was also previously reissued by Favorite. He revealed that Strawberry was a sub-division of the famous Roulette Records, sold to EMI/Rhino Records in 1989 by Morris Levy, its controversial owner who was facing many severe legal problems and died a few years later. Thanks to him and a little more research, this underrated collectible is finally reissued in a beautiful, deluxe 180 gram vinyl version housed in an old-school tip-on jacket.
