Rhino Handmade Releases Lost Jimmy Scott Album

Rhino Handmade, the specialty, Internet-only boutique label of the mighty Rhino, has come up with another gem. Little Jimmy Scott’s lost classic, Falling in Love Is Wonderful, joins the ranks of the audiophile LP version of John Coltrane’s The Heavyweight Champion: The Complete Atlantic Recordings [Year 2000 Second Edition Album Box Set] and the compulsively compiled The Stooges – 1970: The Complete Funhouse Sessions CD box set and many other collector-oriented, limited-edition releases by Rhino Handmade.

There was a mini renaissance for Scott in the early ’90s when he cut a few CDs for Warner Bros., and there seems to be another one this fall, starting with the documentary Jimmy Scott: If You Only Knew, continuing with his autobiography, Faith In Time: The Life Of Jimmy Scott, co-written with David Ritz, who also supplied liner notes to the Falling in Love Is Wonderful reissue, which is limited to 7,500 individually numbered copies worldwide and is only available from www.rhinohandmade.com.
