The verses for these tracks are based on various jump-roping rhymes, but the best parts are the goofy non-sense vocals, sort of like the Zoom language, that you'll recognize from the Cold Cut remix of "Paid In Full." All done over that 1980-era loping rollerskating style music. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warmly wonderful soul from Brandi Wells – a singer with a great talent for midtempo and slow-stepping groovers – as you'll hear on some of the key tracks in this set! The album's a nice batch of later Philly soul – with sophisticated arrangements from Dexter Wansel that bring in some spacey touches on some of the gentler tracks – creating a seductive sound and nice degree of depth, showing Brandi to be a singer who goes way beyond just catchy club tracks. Titles include "Fantasy", "I Hate To See You Go", "Watch Out", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "I Love You", "You Are My Life", "Standing On The Outside", and "Falling In Love".

Heaven & Earth —
That's Love ... CD WMOT/Unidisc, 1981. Used ....
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album from Heaven & Earth – recorded after their big years on Mercury, but with Philly production that gives them a nice fresh sound! The production's a lot more in a modern soul vein than before – but the harmonies are top-shelf all the way, and seem to stretch out even more than on earlier albums, hitting ranges that are normally the province of indie soul recordings from the early 70s, instead of slicker ones from the early 80s. "That's Love" is a great soul number that reminds us of the building emotion of the group's classic "Guess Who's Back In Town" – and other good tracks include "I Really Love You", "You're A Blessing", and "Give Love One More Chance".
