Yes, yes, yes – we all know the group from later years and their big hit at the end of the 70s, but back in the late 60s, they were an excellent uptown soul duo who forged some slight fame with work like this, sweet soul versions of standards and pop tunes, arranged in a strong New York style by Bert Keyes and Van McCoy. Looking at the evergreen titles, you wouldn't think the album was much – but like Ruby & The Romantics and other New York groups of the time, Peaches & Herb really manage to turn the tracks into something new, opening up old lyrics with new soul styles, creating a sound that's both fresh and familiar at the same time. Peaches sings an amazing solo version of "Time After Time", and other tracks include "Let's Fall In Love", "I'm In The Mood For Love", "Close Your Eyes", "We Belong Together", and "I Will Watch Over You". (Cover has a couple of small staple holes in one corner and some light stain on the back along the opening.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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
