Willie Wright — Telling The Truth (with bonus 5" vinyl single!) ... CD 15.99

Incredibly beautiful work from Willie Wright – an album of folksy soul with a slight island spirit – one that nicely nestles Willie's music in a space somewhere between the best 70s work of Terry Callier and Jon Lucien! The sound is wonderful – lean, stripped-down, and wonderfully personal – just the right fit for the sensitive lyrics in Wright's tunes! Instrumentation is mostly bass and guitar, plus some great flute and light percussion – produced with a sound that's just right, too – hardly what you'd expect for the time, without any too-slick modes at all. This beautiful reissue may well set a whole new standard for the Numero label, too – as it comes with the usual great sound and rich notes, plus a great package that also features a bonus 7" single of Wright's classic "Right On For The Darkness" and "Africa"! There's also 3 bonus tracks added to the core record – and titles include "Nantucket Island", "Lady Of The Year", "Love Is Expensive", "Dressing For The Occasion", "Indian Reservation", "Son Don't Let Life Pass You By", and "It's Only Life That's All".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
