Great later grooves from Average White Band – a real gem from the point when the group was settling nicely into a mellow soul vein! By this point, the combo wisely realized that they couldn't keep things going forever as a funky group – so they laid back and fell into their second strongest suit – the kind of mellow stepping rhythms that sparkled nicely between the bigger cuts on earlier records, produced to perfection here with a shimmeringly soulful feel! The album's got a mature feel, and the lyrics are often understated and well-balanced – no easy crossover soul or adult contemporary cliches – just the kind of warmth the band was always known best for. Titles include "Into The Night", "Our Time Has Come", "Catch Me", "For You For Love", "Help is On The Way", "If Love Only Lasts For One Night", and "Shine". (Includes the printed inner sleeve.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

If you need to own one album by Average White Band, this is it!

Arista/Rush, 1989. Near Mint-
Equal parts soul and hip hop – and a record that might be more New Jack than anything else, if it wasn't for production by Davy D and Jam Master Jay! The vocals are a bit poppy and silly at times, but the overall groove isn't that bad, especially considering other efforts like this of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kashif (1983)
Arista, 1983. Very Good
A monumental bit of 80s soul – the first solo album from Kashif, issued hot on the heels of a few years spent penning and producing work for a range of bigger artists! Given his experience with the pros, Kashif's emerging here as a very fully-formed talent in soul – a singer with a way ... LP, Vinyl record album

You Send Me
Polydor, 1978. Very Good-
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
