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.

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

Stax, Early 70s. Very Good
A killer live set by Rufus Thomas – recorded right at the height of his funky comeback, before a very right-on crowd at PJ's Nightclub in LA! Rufus was always a great entertainer, and he really opens up in this live setting – doing some nice versions of "Do The Funky Chicken" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1976. Very Good
A wonderful debut from Aquarian Dream – a group who first appeared under the direction of Norman Connors – and who also have lots of the same blend of jazz, soul, and funk you'd find in Connors' own music of the time! Yet Aquarian Dream are very much their own bag, too – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
