Information about the album courtesy of Rhino Records
In 1969 Cher began recording what would be her only solo album to be released on Atco Records. It was an 11-track collection of mostly covers that would be recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama with the equally legendary Muscle Shoals session players.
Though the paperwork is somewhat murky, there were other Cher sessions for Atco after the recording of the 3614 Jackson Highway. A few of these recordings appeared on Atco singles. Most were never utilized in any manner. However, in 1970 someone at Atco assembled these Gold Star recordings, along with Cher's first Atco solo single sides and other then-non-LP Cher solo Atco singles tracks into a compilation reel certainly intended for commercial release. But, as we all know now, there was never any second CHER solo album and, consequently, almost all of these subsequent Cher solo recordings have stayed on the Atco vault shelves unheard.
Rhino Handmade has finally remedied this. Our expanded version of 3614 Jackson Highway contains every solo recording Cher made and released for Atco Records under her own name. It begins with the complete STEREO version of the 3614 Jackson Highway album remastered from the original 2-track album master. It then contains the complete 1970 assembled compilation reel for the proposed, but abandoned, second Atco album release. It should be noted here and now that this assembled compilation reel is in MONO. There appears to have been, again for reasons not clear to us at this point, no STEREO master for this proposed project prepared. Nor, with the exception of a single STEREO master for one track recorded for the Chastity soundtrack album, are there any surviving individual STEREO masters for any of the other tracks which appear on this assembled compilation reel. To this has been added the aforementioned STEREO version of "Chastity's Song (Band Of Thieves)." And it ends with the final recording Cher made for and delivered to Atco Records, the STEREO "Superstar."
This Rhino Handmade release of 3614 Jackson Highway has been expanded to contain every surviving solo Atco recording. Each of the 23 tracks has been remastered from the original master tapes, five tracks are previously unreleased and all tracks appear together on compact disc for the first time anywhere.
