Sonny & Cher's Final Album To Be Released On CD For The First Time!

Many Cher fans have never heard the likes of 'I Believe in You', 'Rhythm of Your Heart Beat' and 'Listen to the Music' from Sonny & Cher's final studio album 'Mama Was a Rock and Roll Singer, Papa Used to Write All Her Songs' — after all, the LP peaked at just #132 on the US Billboard 200 way back in 1974 and quickly faded away.

The album contains the pair's take on 'I Can See Clearly Now' (originally by Johnny Nash) and 'Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show' (Neil Diamond), both of which the husband-and-wife team performed regularly in their live shows and on the hugely successful 'The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour'. The album also contains Cher's solo hidden gem 'By Love I Mean'.
