I Wanna Get Down

LP (Item 70176) Cotillion, 1980 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

A lost southern soul gem – cut at the end of the 70s, in that rare blend of southern and modern styles that few performers could really carry off well! Frederick Knight produced the album, and it really steps off of his own mellow work of earlier years – taking things even further, thanks to a really wonderful presentation on the vocals by CL, sounding here like the best 70s work by Johnnie Taylor or Tyrone Davis! The album's got a really special feel – and if it was cut for a smaller label, it probably would have gone onto become a rare groove treasure – instead of a slightly-overlooked record on Cotillion. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Our Love Will Last", "I've Got To Make It On My Own", "I Wanna Get Down", "If I Had Loved You More", "Love Don't Feel Like Love No More", and "Let's Do Something Different Tonight".

Cotillion, 1979. Very Good+
Tight bass-heavy funk from Slave – still working here in that excellent compressed style that was their unique contribution to soul music. There's probably a bit more of a vocal-heavy sound here than on other albums, but the groove's still strong, and is reaching a bit towards an 80s club ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cotillion, 1980. Near Mint-
Great smooth soul from Wee Gee – a wonderful little record from the dawn of the 80s! The album's a great one, thanks largely to Vernon Bullock, who wrote, arranged, and produced with that uptempo modern style that he brought to his best work of the 70s. The soaring title track is a 10+ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sneakin' Out
Cotillion, 1982. Near Mint-
80s pop soul at its best – a surprisingly nice balance of modes that's never too cloying, and which sounds a lot better than you'd guess from the heavily dated cover! Stacy's still working with Narada Michael Walden on this one, and the record's got a bouncy little groove on the best numbers ... LP, Vinyl record album

America, Wake Up
Blue Thumb, 1973. Near Mint-
A great album of funky instrumentals from legendary drummer Paul Humphrey – a set that's got a wonderfully quirky feel, and rhythms that change up the groove a lot more than usual! Paul's not content to stick in a simple backbeat mode here – and he really opens up in his approach to ... LP, Vinyl record album

From A Whisper To A Scream
Kudu, 1971. Very Good
One of our favorite-ever albums from Esther Phillips – an album that really helped her transform her sound for the 70s! The approach here is a lot more jazzy than before – served up with a good dose of funk, thanks to arrangements from Pee Wee Ellis – fresh from his work with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hutson
Curtom, 1975. Very Good
An amazing record – quite possibly the best ever by Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson!

Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed
Hot Wax, 1970. Very Good+
One of the best-remembered groups from the Detroit scene of the early 70s – thanks to the massive title track on this album, and a whole host of other wonderful cuts as well! The group features the great Steve Marcus on vocals – an artist who'd cut some key Northern soul singles for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1957. Very Good+
A very unique album from Hank Mobley – one that has him working alongside Milt Jackson, in an unusual format that mixes the soulful Mobley tenor with some well-crafted work on vibes! The "all star" title is certainly appropriate here – as Mobley and Jackson are joined in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
