Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition. SoulMusic Records is very proud to present a deluxe edition of the 1986 self-titled Elektra Records debut album by soul/gospel singer/songwriter Shirley Murdock, whose work with '80s funk group Zapp and Roger Troutman first brought her to international prominence in 1984. After her first US R&B chart appearance in 1984 on Roger's 'Girl, Cut It Out' single, Shirley began working with Roger Troutman producing her solo debut for Elektra Records, released in early 1986. The US gold-certified LP yielded four singles, including the US Top 20 and R&B Top 5 hit, 'As We Lay' which essentially established Shirley as a mainstream recording artist and performer, resulting in two further Elektra albums until Shirley began recording primarily in the gospel field in 1992. With extensive liner notes by renowned US writer, Kevin Goins that include quotes from a 2018 interview with Shirley herself, and husband/musical collaborator Dale de Groat, this deluxe edition features the original 1986 album and eight bonus tracks, including five single edits. The eleven tracks on the second disc comprise various mixes of cuts from the original LP as well as extended versions of Roger's 'Girl, Cut It Out' and the now-classic Zapp track, 'Computer Love' (the latter featuring Charlie Wilson), compiled for the first time in one collection.
