Everything Is Everything

LP (Item 61462) Motown, 1970 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 11

A great early solo set from Diana Ross – a record that still has some great echoes of her work with The Supremes, but an even bolder frontline approach on vocals! Most tracks here still have other female voices backing Ross up – some un-credited Supremes-esque vocals that really help sweeten up the record, and make for a great transition from the earlier years. Production is by Hal Davis and Deke Richards of The Corporation – both of whom start pushing in some more sophisticated elements to the sound – lilting rhythms and soaring strings, but always used in moderation – so that most of the tunes still have that sweetly stepping groove that was associated with Ross' best work of the late 60s. There's some really great songs on the set – including the excellent title track "Everything Is Everything", which has a bouncing little hook, and the wonderful "Doobedood'ndoobe", an original by Deke Richards with a nice set of changes! Other titles include "I Love You", "How About You", "My Place", "Ain't No Sad Song", and "Baby It's Love". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Killer work from The McCrarys – a soul group rooted in gospel, and one who really came into their own once they made the move to Capitol Records!

The second album by this legendary 70s funk combo – best known as Herbie Hancock's backing band, but sounding great here on their own.
