I Have A Dream

Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

Surprisingly nice work! Like the rest of Solomon's post-Atlantic LPs, this one has a sound that's different than his classic work, but which also exposes a whole new side of his talent, and range of vocals that didn't always show up for Atlantic. Solomon arranged and produced here, and the sound is mellow and a bit modern, but still with excellent southern soul touches. Most of the tracks are new, and are dedications to Martin Luther King Jr., who was the inspiration for the album. The stuff's a lot more political than most of Solomon's work, as you might guess by titles like "I Have A Dream", "Now Is The Time", "Social Change", and "Mountain Top". (Cover has a cutout hole and a bit of a small sticker in one corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A pretty great little album from the Four Tops – the kind of excellent sleeper that shows how strong the group stayed year after year!

Reaching For The World
ABC, 1976. Very Good+
A really great post-Philly International album from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – the group's first after the departure of Teddy Pendergrass, and a set that shows them hardly missing a beat!

Keep On Pushing
ABC, 1964. Very Good-
There's no need for The Impressions to push from behind – because with a record like this, they're very firmly in the driver's seat!

Night People
ABC, 1978. Very Good+
A smoother set than usual for Lee Dorsey – recorded with frequent partner Allen Toussaint, but done in a sweeter, more modern soul style that's a refreshing change from earlier years! (C'mon, you didn't expect Lee to keep hitting the same old chunky grooves – did you?) The shift here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Numbers
ABC, 1979. Sealed Gatefold
Rufus without Chaka Khan – but a surprisingly nice set, nonetheless! The album features various members of the group on lead vocals – singing in a warm, compressed style that's got the same sort of AOR sound as the group's jazzy grooves at the time. The overall musicianship is still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Down A Mountainside
RCA, 1975. Very Good+
Mid 70s magic from The Main Ingredient – a set that has the trio working with even more sophistication than on previous records, yet still holding onto all the harmonies that always made them great! Cuba Gooding's lead is wonderful – rich and full of feeling, and slinking nicely over ... LP, Vinyl record album

A&M, 1971. Sealed Gatefold
Billy Preston's first album on A&M Records – a surprisingly great home for his ever-evolving style!
