Legendary drummer Harvey Mason in sweet jazz funk groove at Arista – a way stronger record than we remembered! Harvey played on some of our favorite jazz funk records of all time – including the massive Gears LP by Johnny Hammond among so many other great albums – and on his on 70s work for Arista, he explored jazz funk and soul instrumentals, with an expansive approach. He was an integral piece of the pie on so many completely essential records by other artists, that it's far too easy to overlook the considerable strengths of the records he headlined, and this is surely of on one of those! Players include Lee Ritenour & Ray Parker on guitars, the Sea Wind Horns of Bruce Fowler, Sally and Kenny Mason, Greg Pillinganes and Paul Smith on pianos and organs, Jan Hammer on Mini Moog and others. Cuts include "Sweet Mercy", "Bertha Baptist", "First Summer" (with Harvey Mason on vibes, bells and chimes), "No Lands Man", "Sho Nuff Groove", "The Mase", "When I'm With You (Live Version)" and "KY And The Curb". This expanded edition from Soulmusic.com includes 2 bonus tracks: "KY And The Curb (US Single)" and "The Mase (UK Single)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A&M/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1982. New Copy

ABC/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy

Mercury/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1967. New Copy
Wonderful work from Dionne Warwick's lesser-known sister – a hell of a great singer, and one who packs even more punch than her famous sibling! The gem of a set has all the poise and class of Dionne, but comes across with a lot more soul as well – a great mix that's very much in the ... CD
Arista/7T's (UK), 1976. New Copy
The Drifters' one and only album for Arista Records – and, like their previous Bell albums, a UK-only set that continued their revival years overseas! The production's a bit smoother than before – mostly in keeping with the shifting styles of soul at the time, with a few more uptempo ... CD

1980
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1980. New Copy
