LP (Item 8310) Prelude, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

A classic bit of uptempo funk for the dancefloor – and one of the tightest records from the time on Prelude! The group have a sound that's partly in the Earth Wind & Fire ensemble mode – and partly in the early disco style of other east coast groups – augmented by just the right touch of strings to give them a nice full sound. The instrumentation's all pretty nice, with lots of strong sax solos and other nice breakaway bits – and titles include "I Am Music", "Hustle Bus Stop", "Mother Nature", and "Runnin' Away from Love".

Cadet, 1966. Very Good+
One of the better albums by this great Chicago soul studio group – but all of them are pretty nice! The great Richard Evans is still at the head of The Strings, and the album features solo work by Charles Stepney and Lennie Druss, in a cool breezy Chess/Cadet soul jazz kind of mode. The ...
