LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

Niceness from Evelyn King to cap the end of the 70s! She's really in great form here – stepping out with some fully clubby backings, and working with the mighty T-Life, who's really got a great ear for her groove! The style's a bit less disco than previous albums – some simpler soul at points, mixed with other upbeat modes that hearken a bit more towards the sound of the dancefloor in the early 80s – almost a precursor to that decade's groove at points. Evelyn's vocals are proudly soaring throughout – never too over the top, and always right on the money – and tracks include "Music Box", "I Think My Heart Is Telling", "Out There", "It's OK", "No Time For Fooling Around", and "Make Up Your Mind". (Cover has some wear, marker, and a promo stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bag Full Of Soul
RCA, 1966. Very Good+
Great early work from Jose Feliciano – and definitely the "bag full of soul" promised in the title, as the album's got a wonderfully heartfelt feel all the way through! Jose's voice is warm and beautifully melodic, and the arrangements are a bit more straight ahead than on later ... LP, Vinyl record album

You Fooled Me
RCA, 1978. Very Good
A great little debut album from the team of Len Ron Hanks and Zane Grey – songwriters who'd scored earlier in the 70s with tracks for Jerry Butler and LTD, but who also strike up a pretty strong groove on their own! The pair are from Chicago, but are recording in LA – and their sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

On Top Of Clear
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
One of their nice albums for RCA, with a sound that's a mix of ballads and up-tempo cuts, in the same style as a lot of other East Coast groups from the time. Van McCoy arranged and produced, and the LP includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing", plus "Two Different ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carol Townes & Fifth Avenue
RCA/Sixth Avenue, 1976. Very Good+
A really wonderful bit of group soul from the 70s – the debut effort from a quintet who'd worked hawking goods on TV at the time, but who are getting some tight production here from Lou Courtney – who pushes the album into much hipper territory than you might expect. Carol's in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cloud Nine
Gordy, 1969. Very Good
A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set's awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s – served up in bold ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Near Mint-
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album
