A monumental force firmly rooted in the soul canon, Willie Hutch is most notable for recording two of the best Blaxploitation soundtracks, The Mack and Foxy Brown. Yet his legacy is much greater.

Best remembered for The Mack soundtrack, he also worked with many Motown artists, including The Jackson 5 for whom he co-wrote the hit I’ll Be There. Season For Love (Album). Fully Exposed (Album).

Soul Portrait was his debut album, and, hot damn, it wasn’t a foot set in the industry, it was a whole leg. Responsible for the music and the words of most of the album, Willie Hutch set the record straight in 1969. This incredible effort attracted the ears of Detroit label Motown on the .

Produced by John Florez. A Love That's Worth Having Lyrics. Today life is but a spark of a flame it used to be Today woman will you turn your back on me? Oh we've got to find some sort of compromise So I'll begin by saying oh I apologize Whether I was right or wrong Doesn't matter no We've got to get ourselves back together. Cause a love that's worth having yeah Sure 'nough worth fighting for, better believe it So I'm gonna fight off my pride Defend my bleeding side. Baby, baby, baby, baby,.

The magic behind Soul Portrait is without a doubt chemistry between Hutch’s brazen vocals and the booming brass horns. As seen on tracks like Lucky to Be Loved By You and Ain’t Gonna Stop, the two complement each other perfectly, with the brass providing energy and Hutch bringing the emotion. Through his vocals, Hutch is able inject feelings of love and jubilance into his tracks and does so with incredible success. Soul Portrait encapsulates everything a soul album should be-- powerful brass, smokey vocals, love-inspired writing, and masterful production all contribute to the greatness that Soul Portrait so easily attains.

Willie Hutch was just 25 years old when he recorded his debut album, Soul Portrait. While he would go on to greater commercial success later in his career, Hutch's first stab at soul success sold relatively poorly on its initial release. Ever since, the album has been in demand with collectors, so this licensed reissue is more than welcome. Sitting somewhere between the horn-heavy soul of Stax, punchy '60s funk and the Motor City stomp of Motown, the 11 featured songs put Hutch's evocative, passionate vocals and heart-felt lyrics at the centre of the action.
