First Ever Release Of Deniece Chandler's Toddlin' Town Album. Includes All Of Her Toddlin' Town And Subsidiary Lock 45rpm Releases Plus Previously Unreleased And Bonus Recordings 4 X Grammy Award Winner. DENIECE CHANDLER was born June 3rd, 1950 in Gary, Indiana and grew up rubbing shoulders with the Jackson 5. Her uncle William Blakely was the Bishop of Indiana and her sister sang back-up for Lou Rawls! She successfully auditioned for Toddlin' Town Records from neighbouring Chicago, while still at high school and Eugene Record and Barbara Acklin penned her first single, "Love Is Tears" / "I'm Walking Away", which opens our set. The song enjoyed some modest local success, but more importantly, it caught the ear of Stevie Wonder! She recorded a total of six singles for Toddlin' Town, and it's associated Lock label, including a duet with Michigan soul singer Lee Sain. The twelve sides were intended to form her solo album, but sadly Lock went out of business in 1970 and Deniece returned to college. A year later the call came from Stevie Wonder and she joined his backing group Wonderlove (the inspiration for our album title). Her big break came in 1975 when she met Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire who took her to Columbia Records and produced the album "This Is Niecy" which spawned her self-penned single "Free" scoring a top 40 stateside hit and a No. 1 in the U. K. Williams would go on to win four Grammys, twelve nominations and become a worldwide household name. Here, for the very first time, we present her complete early body of work including unreleased and bonus tracks that showcase her exceptional four-octave range which, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "would make Mariah Carey quiver"
