His California Album

Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 46

A nice little record from Bobby – quite different from his 60s sides for Duke/Peacock, and recorded in California (as you might guess from the title!) with a smoother more soulful approach. The style works well for Bobby – and kind of gave him a new lease on life during the 70s, as he mixed his rougher bluesy vocals with some hipper arrangements – still quite deep in soul, but with a compressed sound that creates a new mode of expression. Titles include "Goin Down Slow", "Up & Down World", "Help Me Through The Day", "Where Baby Went", "Friday The 13th Child", "This Time I'm Gone For Good", and "I've Got To Use My Imagination".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Enterprise, Early 70s. Very Good+
A bit bluesier than some of Sonny's other records for Enterprise at the time – but still with some nice funky moments! The backing on the set has a compressed sweet Memphis groove – nice and soulful on the best tracks, slinking along in a slow funky groove underneath Sonny's harmonica ... LP, Vinyl record album
