LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

You came a long way from Motown baby! This is Kim's weird, oddly patriotic (and slightly reactionary) album with Marty Paich arrangements of tracks like "The House I Live In", "This Is My Country", and "This is America". Also with tracks like "Exodus" and "People". A strange, but not unpleasant mix of pop easy soul tracks – and it also features Kim's rendition of "Lift Every Voice", oddly placed in the record, but one of the most standard soul versions! (Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
