Come To My Party

LP (Item 33831) Chi Sound/20th Century, 1978 — Condition: Used

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

A sweet late 70s gem from The Impressions – an album of smooth grooves and soulful steppers – and one that really shows the group flourishing in a new style at the time! Some of the group's Chicago contemporaries tried to move forward at the time, but few did things this well – still keeping the core sense of harmony and soul intact, while also finding new rhythms and some new warmer styles of instrumentation as well. Of course, it also helps that they're getting help from longtime Chicago soul producer Carl Davis – who's very respectful of the trio on the record, and clearly has a good repoire with Fred Cash, Sam Gooden, and Reggie Torian. And while the groovers are nice, the mellow ones are even better – great slow-stepping cuts that include "All I Want To Do Is Make Love To You", "Maybe I'm Mistaken", and "I Could Never Make You Stay" – nestled alongside tracks that include "Sorry", "This Can't Be Real", and "Come To My Party".

Clean
20th Century, 1978. Very Good+
A solid entry from Edwin Starr's late 70s comeback into the clubs – a set that's miles from his harder soul for Motown, but which still has some pretty great vocals overall!
