LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

The O'Jays keep on going strong – hitting a smooth mellow Philly vibe that takes them away from the style of their mid 70s hits! The sound here is a bit more uptempo than on the previous album So Full Off Love – but the group are still also really using the time to explore their mellower side – kicking back in a warm and sophisticated mode that really shows the Philly sound growing up at the end of the 70s. Ballad highlights include the mellow stepper "Hurry Up & Come Back", plus "Forever Mine" and "I Want You Here With Me" – and more uptempo cuts include "So Nice I Tried It Twice", "One In A Million", and "Sing A Happy Song".

My Music
Philadelphia International, 1976. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums ever from Bunny Sigler – a sublime set that bridges his earlier Philly sweet soul recordings and his later disco work! The set avoids any of the silliness that could sometimes hurt Bunny's later work, and instead nicely blends together Philly soul and studio funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
Greatest Hits
Westbound, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great gatefold compilation of their funky Westbound tracks, with such faves as "Pain", "Walt's First Trip", "Funky Worm", "Varee is Love", "Climax", and more. Slightly different track listing than the "Best of the Early Years" comp, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Just A Melody
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+
One of a great run of grooves from the legendary team of bassist Eldee Young and drummer Redd Holt – a smoking batch of instrumentals done in the best Chicago soul style of the time! Young and Holt got their start in the early trio of Ramsey Lewis – but here, they've fully expanded to ... LP, Vinyl record album
