Earthy work from Don Crawford – a very unique artist who works in a mix of soul and folk modes – a bit like Terry Callier at points, but with some more unusual touches as well! This album's got a pretty full set of arrangements, which makes for more of a Callier-like quality than some of Don's other records – but even so, the music's more like the straighter 60s folk of Callier than some of the soaring soul sounds of his Cadet years in the early 70s. Crawford's got a deeply soulful voice that rings out beautifully in this setting – and makes the whole sound of the album come through beautifully. Titles include "Fire Island Saturday", "Small Brown Baby", "Silent Scream", "Benediction", and "I Too Wanted Peace". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

It's a great cut, with sweet soulful vocals, and a totally catchy midtempo groove ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1975. Near Mint-
The lasting recorded legacy of Jimmy Walker – and material that shows a much sharper, much smarter side of his personality than his character on Good Times! Walker's got a fast-talking, bad-rapping approach that's definitely rooted in the party record scene of the 60s – yet which is ... LP, Vinyl record album
