CD


4.80 11

A great Motown set from the 70s – a record that grooves with the new styles the label was exploring at the time, yet still has a rock-solid quality that links back to its 60s heritage too! The main strength here comes from Bonnie Pointer – whose vocals have an instantly classic sound that really fits the grooves – but the record also has killer help from top to bottom, too – including production from Berry Gordy and Jeffrey Bowen, songs penned by Bowen, Smokey Robinson, Angelo Bond, Lamont Dozier, and Truman Thomas, and top-shelf help from California Motown studio giants. Titles include "When I'm Gone", "Free Me From My Freedom/Tie Me To A Tree", "Heaven Must Have Sent You", "Ah Shoot", "I Wanna Make It", and "My Everything". CD features great bonus tracks too – including "Free Me From My Freedom/Time Me To A Tree (12" disco version)", "Free Me From My Freedom/Time Me To A Tree (inst)", "Free Me From My Freedom/Time Me To A Tree (single)", "Heaven Must Have Sent You (12" disco)", and "Heaven Must Have Sent You (single)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Joneses
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
A killer for the Joneses – probably their strongest album all the way through, thanks to some great production and arrangements by Bobby Eli! This one's got the group taking the fragile harmony style of their earlier records, and filtering it through the Philly powerhouse groove to create a ... CD

Early 80s funky soul from Search – a tight little group with a wickedly sharp edge! The combo is led by Les Paul Roque, fresh from his stint with Kool & The Gang – and the vibe here is similar to that group, but with a smaller combo approach overall – lots of bass at the ... CD
