Come To My Party

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

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".

The third album from Black Heat – and quite possibly the funkiest of the bunch – thanks to an even tighter sound than before, and lots of emphasis on the bottom of the groove!

King, 1970. Very Good-
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oh Girl
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint-
Wicked electric funk from Young Holt Unlimited – and a real departure from the sound of their 60s albums, and a step into a groove that's very 70s-styled overall! The album's heavy on Fender Rhodes – played not just by group member Ken Chaney, but also by a young Bobby Lyle – ... LP, Vinyl record album
