Helen Reddy - I Don't Know How To Love Him Vinyl Album

Helen Reddy gave her husband and manager Wald an ultimatum: "he [must] either revitalize her career or get out...Jeff threw himself into his new career as Mr. Helen Reddy. Five months of phone calls to Capitol Records executive Artie Mogull finally paid off: Mogull agreed to let Helen cut one single if Jeff promised not to call for a month. She did I Believe in Music penned by Mac Davis b/w I Don't Know How to Love Him from Rice & Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar. The A-side fell flat but then some Canadian DJ's flipped the record over and... "It became a hit – No. 13 in June 1971 – and Helen Reddy was on her way." Reddy's stardom was consolidated when her single "I Am Woman" reached No. 1 on the Hot 100 in December 1972. The song was co-written by Reddy with Ray Burton; Reddy has attributed the impetus for writing "I Am Woman" and her early awareness of the women's movement to expatriate Australian rock critic and pioneer feminist Lillian Roxon. Reddy is quoted in Fred Bronson's The Billboard Book of Number One Hits as saying that she was looking for songs to record which reflected the positive self-image she had gained from joining the women's movement, but could not find any, so "I realized that the song I was looking for didn't exist, and I was going to have to write it myself." "I Am Woman" was recorded and released in May 1972 but barely dented the charts in its initial release. However, female listeners soon adopted the song as an anthem and began requesting it from their local radio stations in droves, resulting in its September chart re-entry and eventual No. 1 peak. "I Am Woman" earned a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. At the awards ceremony, Reddy concluded her acceptance speech by famously thanking God "because She makes everything possible". The success of "I Am Woman" made Reddy the first native of Australia to top the US charts and also to win a Grammy.

Both the album cover and the vinyl album are in good condition. The inner sleeve is the original sleeve that came with the album.
