LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

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.

Enchantment
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+
Soaring grooves and mellow moments – a perfect blend of 70s soul styles, summed up here beautifully by Enchantment! The album's one of the group's greatest – and certainly one that's been very well-remembered around these parts – thanks to some rock-solid arrangements from Johnny ... LP, Vinyl record album
