A peach of a record from Melba Moore – one that's produced by Eugene McDaniels, who helps find a tight funky sound that unlocks some of the most righteous elements in Moore's vocals! Like some of McDaniels' best productions of the time, there's a good sense of balance here – a way of going deep, then swinging back for a nice hook – ensuring that the record would reach just the right audience, while still helping get the message across! Gary King did all the arrangements, with a righteous soul style that works perfectly with Melba's vocals – and the set's got some great keyboards from Bob James, Richard Tee, and Dave Grusin – all of whom keep things hip. Titles include "If You Can Believe", "My Soul Is Satisfied", "Must Be Dues", "I Am His Lady", "A Million Years Before This Time", "If I Lose", and "Natural Part of Everything".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
