Information from the web site of Ubiquity records
Listed for sale on collector sites for over $2000 (and unfortunately bootlegged) we’re delighted to present an official re-release of this Northern soul gem. In 1973 Jerry Pittman met Carmelita (goes by her first name) on a blind date set up by "Spookey" Jones, a saxophone player and member of the Joe Tex band. They were married in 1974 and Pittman produced Carmelita’s single “Isn’t It Lonely” b/w “Rosebud” for their Carmen record label established the same year. They co-wrote “Isn’t It Lonely” and Pittman sings background vocals for Carmelita on the track. Receiving local radio play the single appeared on local Top 40 charts while James Brown was number one. Pittman, a second cousin to Martin Luther King, was born in West Palm Beach, Florida. He sang with doo wop group The Casinos who toured as opening act for Sam and Dave. Eventually Pittman moved to Los Angeles where he was independent promoter for Warner Brothers working acts like Tower of Power. He also worked at Monarch Records in the plating division and his signature appears on the acetates for records by The Doors, Diana Ross, and The Fifth Dimension. Carmelita is a native Angelino and an award winning artist and art educator helping students from the inner city obtain art scholarships and honors. On track for a successful music career she ultimately decided to devote her life to teaching. After her mother's life was cut short by breast cancer in 1998 she founded The Rose Breast Cancer Society. The title of this non-profit is based on her mother's favorite flower and the rose also features as part of the Carmen Records logo. Profits Carmelita receives from her recording of “Rosebuds” are designated to benefit the society to “provide education for the prevention and intervention of breast cancer.”
