Sweet Bird

LP (Item 411273) A&M, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

Sweet grooving from Lani Hall – a record that's a long way from her roots in Brasil 66, but which has some surprisingly nice touches at times! Herb Alpert produced – and handled arrangements along with Lani and Michel Colombier – and it may well be Colombier's highly rhythmic approach to larger backings that makes the best parts of the album so nice – because some unexpected moments bounce along with a very slight funky undercurrent, offsetting Lani's sometimes overdone vocals with leaner modes that push things past the clutter. Titles include a nicely grooving version of "Send In The Clowns", plus "Early Mornin Strangers", "Mr Blue", "Too Many Mornings", "Sweet Bird", "Dolphins Lullaby", and "At The Ballet". (White label promo, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole, tape on the spine, and a promo sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Freaky spandex and a mighty nice groove – a record that sounds a lot better than you might guess from the group's outfits on the cover!

Curtom, 1968. Very Good+
The Impressions are wearing their politics much more on their sleeve at this point – what with a cover that shows them standing in the rubble of the ghetto, and a title that is both a bold proclamation of ownership, and a sad comment on the state of affairs.

Hi Records, 1972. Very Good
Beautiful early work by Al! The record is a haunting mix of tender soul tracks filled with love, warmth, and Al's sexy soul. It's hard to distinguish this one from other records of his at the time, because they're all so good – but we can tell you that the album features Al's stone classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Let's Do It Again
Curtom, 1975. Very Good
Probably the best record the Staple Singers ever cut during the 70s – as it makes a genius move by taking their rich vocal style and laying it over some excellent tracks written by Curtis Mayfield! The record's quite different than their usual Stax numbers, and has a Curtom groove that's hip ... LP, Vinyl record album
