Curtis Hairston

LP (Item 23611) Atlantic, 1986 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A killer debut from Curtis Hairston – an overlooked 80s soul singer who should have made it big, given the strength of this set! The album's got a tight groove, but is never too commercial – a bit away from other Atlantic soul of the time, thanks to some solid studio help from Kae Williams of BB&Q Band, a group with whom Hairston had worked previously. Williams arranged and produced half the set – the rest was done by Greg Radford – and the album mixes Hairston's well-crafted vocals with a mixture of upbeat rhythms and mellower tunes, the latter of which we like the best. Titles include "You're My Shining Star", "Chillin Out", "All We Have Is Love", "Take Charge", "The Morning After", and "Hold On (For Me)". (Cover has a promo stamp, cutout notch & factory sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Joy & Pain
Capitol, 1980. Very Good
Classic modern soul from the legendary Frankie Beverly! The record's perhaps one of their best remembered – most likely for the killer cut "Joy & Pain", which has a great hook that's been sampled many times over the years. The record also features the wonderful "Southern ... LP, Vinyl record album
