Ronnie McNeirRonnie McNeir ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
The amazing debut of Ronnie McNeir – a 70s soul maestro we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway, Leroy Hutson, or Leon Ware – but one who's possibly even more impressive, given that he cut this record when he was only 22 years old! The album's quite heavy on keyboards – ... read more CD

One of our favorite all-time vocal groups – even if they did sell a bazillion records during the 70s!
