LP, Vinyl record album

Keith Barrow's first album of secular soul – a soaring set of vocals that really shows off his gospel roots! The record's produced by Bobby Eli with a bit of a Philly soul touch, but in ways that go quite past the conventional modes of the time – kind of offbeat at points, with a richness in sound that really matches Barrow's vocal range! Keith is one of those singers who's very confident in his style – working lines over and over, and driving a tune into a nice sort of frenzy – even at some mellow moments. We like these mellow moments best – as they have a great sort of focus – and titles include the underground groover "I Put The Twinkle In Your Eye", which has a hook you'll be singing for days, plus the cuts "A World Of Loney People", "Didn't You Know You'd Have to Cry Sometime", "Precious", "Mr Magic Man", and "Questions". (Cover has a promo stamp, light stains, a small peeled spot, and a tracklist sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

These guys are still pretty darn great at this point – and the album's an updating of their uptempo funky club sound, one that still retains a lot of the best elements of earlier efforts.

Reaction
Columbia, 1986. Very Good+
A smoking second album from Rebbie Jackson – a set that has Rebbie working with strong production help from two of the bigger aspects of the Columbia Records soul family in the 80s – Tito Jackson and Reggie Lucas, who each handle a handful of songs along with David Conley and Howie Rice. ...

Celestial Sky
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+
Massive massive work from Starship Orchestra – a trio of talents from the Norman Connors universe, but one who get some heavy help in the studio from arrangers Bobby Lyle, McKinley Jackson, and Jerry Peters!

Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
If ever there was an album to prove the old Columbia/Atlantic split about Aretha's strengths and talents, this is it. The record works on a formula that should be strong enough – and it has Aretha reprise a number of classic R&B tunes by Dinah Washington. However, the arrangements by ... LP, Vinyl record album

James D-Train Williams' first album for a major label – and a really great follow-up to the indie success of his initial recordings for Prelude Records!

In Your Eyes
Columbia, 1988. Near Mint-
A later effort from James D-Train Williams, but still plenty darn great – and proof that his groove was still one of the strongest in 80s soul music! The style of the set follows from Williams' best earlier work – a bit of bounce at the bottom of most of the tracks, but never too much ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1973. Very Good+
Barry White's got plenty to give here – a massive classic from his legendary early 70s years – and the first record to feature the maestro on his own as a lead act!

Rotary Connection
Cadet, 1967. Very Good
One of the best Rotary Connection albums for Cadet – with an incredible baroque spacey soul sound that still feels very fresh today! The group's vocals are especially eerie – and float around these wild arrangements by Charles Stepney, peppered with strings, soul, fuzzy guitars, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
TSOP, 1980. Very Good+
A huge change from the early sound of The Stylistics – as the group have moved to Philly International, and are really shining in the light of the Gamble & Huff galaxy! The album's got a lot more grooves than before, but still offers up plenty of space for the trademark mellow ballads ... LP, Vinyl record album
