Universal Music Group, Geffen, EMI and Capitol Records
Dear Respective Catalog Owners,
I've been a fan of the great musical family The Sylvers for years! However, I'm saddened by the fact that only 3 of their 10 studio albums are issued on CD(same for most of their solo work). Not to mention the group's first 3 albums are scarce and expensive even in used vinyl form. I think it's deplorable that all of that beautiful music is stuck on vinyl! I also find that I'm not alone in that frustration. Fans aren't exactly satisfied with the few 'Best Of' or 'Greatest Hits' collections available on CD. We want a proper and more accessible showcase for their music.
From 1972-1985 this family gifted us an amazing body of evergreen music. Their astounding harmony sold millions of records and put several singles on the charts, including the immortal "Boogie Fever"! They absolutely rank among the top of great family musical groups. The group wrote most of their music and it's where super producer Leon Sylvers got his start. Through various samples using their timeless music, most notably "Misdemeanor" by Foster Sylvers and TV One's show "Unsung" they're gaining even more fans. They are still fondly remembered and happily re-discovered by music fans for their versatile music, style and beauty.
Many fans are wanting to have their albums reissued/remastered! The Sylvers have left a legacy that should not be kept from current and future generations who truly want great and meaningful music. Simply put I can't stand the silencing of them anymore! Fans join in support of this music being re-released, plus any unreleased material owned by their respective companies!
