Roy Ayers — No Stranger To Love ... CD 16.99

An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned with his more famous dancefloor ready work of the late 70s – and if it gets an extra point two for the incredibly cool cover photo, the slow burning grooves more than deliver on the promise! The album does a really nice job of rolling out both the sultry jazzy soul and the funkier Ayers modes, with sweet strings in spots, Roy's incomparable vibes, bass and keyboard grooving, and vocals that set the mood for both the slow jams and the funky stuff! Includes the extended mellow number "Don't Let Our Love Slip Away", one of Roy's better downtempo moments, plus great stuff like "Don't Stop The Feeling", plus "What You Won't Do For Love", "No Stranger To Love/Want You", "Shack Up, Pack Up, It's Up (When I'm Gone)", "Don't Hide Your Love". (Includes the printed inner sleeve.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polydor, 1972. Very Good-

Survival
Philadelphia International, 1975. Very Good+
Not one of their most classic Philly LPs, but still a nice batch of soul tracks with the usual perfect Gamble-Huff production, and harmonies that definitely go the distance! Tracks include "What Am I Waiting For", "Give The People What They Want", "Rich Get Richer", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brass Construction
United Artists, 1975. Very Good
A classic set that goes "slam" from the very first note – and which helped to set the pace for countless ensemble funk acts to come! Brass Construction had a wonderful sound that was the best-realized version of the east coast indie club combos of the mid 70s – funky at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
This one was kind of Motown's answer to the Wattstax albums – a double live set, recorded in Chicago during the Push Expo, headed by Jesse Jackson. The tracks here are more of a mixed bag than some of those on the deeper soul Wattstax albums, but there are some nice moments overall, buried ... LP, Vinyl record album
