Bobby Womack at the height of his powers – perfectly balancing southern soul roots and 70s soul polish – with an amazing sound that was unlike anyone else at the time! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but has a quality that goes way beyond any of the standard modes from the studio – almost as if Bobby brought a special sort of magic to the sessions that made everyone rise above the sometimes too-familiar work they were giving to the bigger names who were traipsing through the studio. Of course, a big part of the success of the album comes from Womack's amazing vocal delivery – that style that's raspy, yet warm – and which is a perfect fit for the well-penned tunes on the set. Titles include "I'm Through Trying To Prove My Love To You", "Nobody", "If You Can't Give Her Love Give Her Up", and a very cool version of "The Look Of Love". (Includes the printed inner sleeve & poster still attached! Cover has a cutout hole & some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

United Artists, 1976. Very Good
The title track to this one – "Right Back Where We Started From – was a real 70s monster, hitting big on AM radio and the dancefloors, and still kind of a guilty pleasure for us these days. The rest of the record's a bit spotty – but there's a few nice moments, like Maxine's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feel It
United Artists, 1979. Very Good+
Great work from Noel Pointer – one of the leading lights in the United Artists soul spectrum at the end of the 70s! As with other Pointer sets from the time, there's a pretty strong fusion undercurrent here – a groove that's built up from Noel's own work on electric violin, plus some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feel The Phuff
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Very Good+
Classic late 70's Chi soul group, with some very early work by Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, and vocal and tenor work by Reggie Griffin. The tracks are mostly uptempo ensemble funk, with a smooth production sound that doesn't always bring out the group's best talents. Titles include "Ou ... LP, Vinyl record album

13 great early O'Jays numbers: "Lonely Drifter", "Oh, How You Hurt Me", "Whip It On Me Baby", "How Does It Feel", "I'll Never Forget You", "Lipstick Traces (On A Cigarette)", "Stand Tall", "I Cried My Last Tear", " ... LP, Vinyl record album
Groovy Kind of Love
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Groovy little album of pop soul recorded for Capitol, with arrangements by Sid Feller and Mike Melvoin! We're not sure what the single is here, but this has the same feel as some of the Patti Drew LPs, in which there's a few lesser known cuts, and then a bunch of pop covers. Titles include "W ...

1980
Arista, 1980. Very Good
A great one from Gil Scott-Heron – and another wonderful collaboration with Brian Jackson – who handled all the arrangements on this set, and gave the record that sweet jazzy sound that makes Gil's work from this time some of his best ever! There's loads of excellent electric piano ... LP, Vinyl record album
