CD (Item 603137) Imperial/Shout (UK), Mid 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


5.00 11

Amazing early work from The O'Jays – tracks recorded a decade before their big fame at Philly International – with a heartbreaking harmony feel all the way through! Even at the start, The O'Jays were a cut above – and as you'll hear here, they come across with an especially deep soul approach to harmony vocals – one that's perfect both for mellow cuts, and for some of the more uptempo groovers here – work so great, we always wonder why it took these guys a full decade to achieve the chart fame they deserved! But never mind that, because this excellent collection finally gives these Imperial years their due – and offers up a whopping 28 tracks in all, every Imperial Records single in one sweet little package – with great mastering and notes too. Titles include "Stand Tall", "The Storm Is Over", "Crack Up Laughing", "How Does It Feel", "Lonely Drifter", "Whip It On Me Baby", "Lipstick Traces", "Oh How You Hurt Me", "No Time For You", "Pretty Words", "Stand In For Love", "Friday Night", "Time Is On My Side", and "Let It All Out".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
