Albums recorded in 1978 seems to be a theme in Sam’s Jams, and that’s for a good reason. 1978 had some of the best production in Funk, Soul, and R&B. Somewhere In My Lifetime was recorded and released in 1978 by singer Phyllis Hyman. One of my favorite singers of the 1970’s and 80’s, Hyman’s versatility and emotion is unmated in my humble opinion. ***Make sure you press “follow” on my Spotify playlist to see my weekly updates in your Spotify feed**
