Sleeping Giants

CD (Item 627141) Expansion (UK), 2012 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 11

Maybe the greatest record we've ever heard from Beggar & Co – a set that sparkles strongly from a host of excellent guest work – not just from Incognito, but also from some key American musicians as well! The groove is tighter than ever – and very much in the 70s-inspired style that's always made us love the group – a wonderfully warm blend of jazz, funk, and soul that comes off with the feel of a lost treasure from way back! The set's got a positive, upbeat sound throughout – and titles include "If You Really Love Me", "Victoria Park", "Summer Is Here At Last", "While The City Sleeps", "New Beginnings", "Rise", "Yesterday's Gone", and "Changes".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

I Promise You Love
Capitol/Expansion (UK), 1989. New Copy

Chantels
End/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy
One of the greatest girl groups of the fifties – and one of the few who could sing with the same sort of depth as the best male lineups of the time! The Chantels really know how to hit on all burners when they get going – which they do here – and their work of the time is hardly ... CD

Rumble
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy
One of Jubilee Records' excellent collections of earlier vocal group material – served up in a cool covered package with some nice Scorpio Rising overtones!
