At Last Bill Cosby Really Sings

LP (Item 2119) Partee/Stax, 1974 — Condition: Used
Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

One of Bill's few records that actually feature The Coz singing it up! This one's like his work on Warner Brothers – with funky backings behind Bill's slightly-silly soul vocals. The set was produced by Stu Gardner, who ostensibly did the music too – and Stu's on organ, piano, and clavinette, in a group that features George Bohannon, Syl River, Ray Parker, and Rudy Johnson, plus backup vocals by Patti Austin and Lani Groves. Tracks include "Kiss Me", "Put Love In Its Proper Place", "Take Your Time", "Dedicated To Phyllis", "It's Strange", "Dance of the Frozen Lion", and "Train To Mempis". (Cover has a cutout hole, staining & peeling along the bottom three inches, and some marker inside the gatefold.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We'll Get Over
Stax, 1969. Very Good+
Perfect work from The Staple singers – a tight blend of gospel soul and Memphis funk, handled here with a tightness that avoids all the cliches of some of the group's later work! The group's hard vocal approach is very much in place on all tracks – raw but not careless, with great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crown Prince Of Dance
Stax, 1973. Near Mint-
A crowning achievement for Rufus Thomas – a set that bubbles over with funky intensity, and one of the last great albums he ever recorded for Stax! The funky Rufus mode is still in full full swing here – with loads of tunes that have the word "funky" in the title – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sunshine
Stax, Early 70s/1977. Very Good
Earlier Stax work recorded by The Emotions, not issued at the time and packaged together into a pretty great album during the time of the girls' bigger fame on Columbia! The work here is surprisingly great – not really filler at all, and in a style that's almost hipper than any of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live At Randy's Rodeo
Stax, 1973. Very Good+
Country soul from OB McClinton – kind of a mix of Clarence Carter and Charly Pride, but with a lot more Charly than Clarence. The set's a live one, with OB doing a lot of hip patter with the crowd – and titles include "Today I Started Loving You Again", "The Lord Knows I' ... LP, Vinyl record album
War Of The Gods
Philadelphia International, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
A stone treasure from one of the greatest soul singers of the 70s – and a set you'll regularly find in the coolest of record collections from back in the day! Billy Paul was always one of the hippest talents on Philly International – mixing together soul and jazz influences with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ship Ahoy
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
A pivotal album from The O'Jays – and an undeniable Philly classic! The record was the third the group cut for the Philadelphia International label – but it was really the first one that pushed their strong righteous soul agenda, sort of a mix of message-oriented lyrics and heavy soul ...
