Incredibly great work from Machine – an album of disco tunes, but with a hipper, message-oriented feel than most of its contemporaries! The group will forever be known for their classic hit "There But For The Grace Of God Go I" – an infectious groover with a wild lyric about urban flight in the 70s – and they more than match the quality of that one with a host of other great tunes on the set that have a similar feel. Part of the credit should go to August Darnell, working here in a pre-Kid Creole way that throws in lots of jagged touches and some really wicked guitar to most of the tunes! Tracks include "There But For The Grace Of God Go I", plus "Mr. Destiny", "You've Come A Long Way Baby", "It's The Last Time Again", and "Marisa". (Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has a "featuring" sticker on the front, another sticker on the back, and some light edge wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tight, funky, and plenty darn groovy – a set that has Chocolate Milk sounding a lot smoother than at their start, but still pretty darn great overall!

Jose Feliciano Sings
RCA, 1972. Sealed
Nice moody batch of soul tracks by this great LA Chicano soul singer. The tracks include a number of pop covers, but as with his classic "California Dreamin", Jose manages to turn the material into his own bag, and makes the cuts come alive with his soulful singing and guitar playing. ...

RCA, 1972. Sealed
Nice batch of funky soul instrumentals, arranged and conducted by studio genius and reedman Phil Bodner, and with a nice hard sound that's better than you'd expect from the hokey cover. There's a great cover of "Rock Steady" with a wailing big band sound, plus a great original called ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rock Your Baby
TK, 1974. Very Good
The record that forever put George McCrae on the map – and a crossover bit of Miami soul from the 70s with all the key elements of the TK sound firmly in place! George's vocals are nicely flanged out in that cool production mode that TK was using with its big acts of the time (an approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
