Carrie Cleveland was an Oakland resident and regular performer at hotels and clubs around the San Francisco Bay area in the 1970's. Her first recording is also considered her best. It was a self-produced promotional 45rpm record featuring "Make Love To Me" on Side A and "I Need Love" on Side B. Both songs were written by her husband, Bill Cleveland. These recordings were later commercially released as a 45 but were remastered with an electronic keyboard that is generally considered too loud and less soulful than the original, making the promo much more desirable.
