LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Smooth soul from Cliff Dawson – a singer as classy as his look on the cover, and definitely a cut above most of the mainstream soul artists of his time! The album's an overlooked gem that's very nicely put together – well recorded, arranged with a subtle flair, and usually done with a warmer sound than you might guess for the vintage of the set – almost like some late 70s underground modern soul set, which is saying plenty to ears like ours! Thor Baldursson did most of the arrangements, but in ways that are much more restrained than his disco years – and titles include "It's Not Me You Love", "Waiting For Your Love", "Betcha Didn't Know", "I Can Love You Better", "Ocean Green Eyes", and "Never Say I Do".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers!

Warner, 1977. Very Good
Eugene Record's best solo record, and the only one that does justice to the fabulous Chicago soul legacy that he left behind when he departed the Chi-Lites, and stopped working for Brunswick records. Eugene's vocals are right out front, and the arrangements are nice and sweet all the way through. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Major's Greatest Hits
Okeh, Mid 60s. Very Good-
This is the stuff that the Chicago soul scene cut its teeth on in the 60s! Curtis Mayfield wrote a big batch of these tracks, Carl Davis produced, and the Major lays them down with a groove groove groove! Titles include "Monkey Time", "Come See", "Um, Um, Um, Um, Um" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Look Out!
Prestige, 1963. Very Good
A solid early 60s side by Johnny Hammond Smith and one that's unlike a lot of his other records from the time. This set was recorded with the great tenor player Seldon Powell, one of the few sessions where he actually gets a lot of room to solo, which we welcome whole-heartedly. Clement Wells is ...
