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

Keep On Runnin'
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good-
The third album from Black Heat – and quite possibly the funkiest of the bunch – thanks to an even tighter sound than before, and lots of emphasis on the bottom of the groove! The group's got a few more members than before, but their sound is somehow even leaner – a really tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
