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".

Mellow Dreamin'
Cotillion, 1970. Very Good-
One of their wildest and most beautiful LPs! By this point, Young & Holt getting past their usual funky Brunswick sound here, and they've opened up the groove a lot with lots of nice extra bits. The best proof of this is their fantastic take on "Midnight Cowboy", which has an insane ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Luther
Cotillion, 1976. Very Good-
His first album, and his best! After working as the silent talent on albums by David Bowie, Gregg Diamond, and others – Luther Vandross finally got the chance to cut an album on his own, and it's incredible! The record has a perfect sound – one that verges on disco, but never falls ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mind Magic
Mercury, 1978. Very Good
Smooth jazzy soul, with excellent production by Wayne Henderson and his At-Home Productions team. David Oliver's got a deep baritone voice, and it slithers sexily through tracks like "Private Secretary", "Who Are You", "Take My Emptiness", and the great mellow groover ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bodyheat
Polydor, 1976. Near Mint-
An enduring classic from James Brown – quite possibly the strongest of his late 70s albums, and a record that nicely balances the harder funk of the early part of the decade with a more sophisticated style that almost gets slightly jazzy at times! The vocals are planted strongly at the top ... 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

You Want It, You Got It
Westbound, 1972. Very Good-
A great early album from The Detroit Emeralds! The group sings with an excellent raw harmony sound, over tight arrangements that have a good groove to them. The record includes a number of classics, like "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" (with a De La Soul sample!), "You Want It, ... LP, Vinyl record album

House Of Music
Mirage/Atlantic, 1980. Very Good
Livin' the "Bon Bon Vie", with this classic uptempo groover from T.S. Monk! You'd hardly guess that this guy was Thelonious Monk's son – but who cares about his roots when the album grooves so hard? This Monk plays drums, not piano, but the best tracks on the record have a tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
