Great smooth soul from Wee Gee – a wonderful little record from the dawn of the 80s! The album's a great one, thanks largely to Vernon Bullock, who wrote, arranged, and produced with that uptempo modern style that he brought to his best work of the 70s. The soaring title track is a 10+ minute epic that really transcends – hitting an emotional groove early and holding it throughout – and the rest of the tunes are just as nice! Wee Gee's a pretty decent vocalist – and the lofty arrangements keep him in the groove in a mode that's similar to some of Lamont Dozier's best work. The keys and synthesizers are nice – never oversteeped in ways that mired modern soul later in the decade and they go very will with the larger arrangements! Titles include "Hold On (To Your Dreams)", "Let Me Lay With You", "You've Been A Part Of Me", "Remember The Love", and "Don't Make Me The Reason". (In nice shape! Cover has a small cutout mark.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Funky But!
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+
Funky but also loosely jazzy and soulful grooves from Young Holt Unlimited! This is easily the most obscure album by the Young Holt combo for Brunswick – and a really wicked set that has them stretching out a lot from their early years!

Nick Straker Band
Prelude, 1980. Very Good
Tasty club tracks from Nick Straker and his combo! The record's got a strong 80s groove feel – similar to other albums on Prelude at the time, but with some nice touches of jazz, as promised in the title. Nick plays keyboards on the record – mostly Fender Rhodes and Prophet, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
