An album that's a lot better than its cover – which shows Donald O'Conner in a gold moon suit, blasting out of the top of his spaceship! The music is surprisingly soulful, despite this cheesy cover gimmick – and O'Conner has a warm, fluid vocal sound that moves nicely throughout. Instrumentation has a bit of keyboards, but also some warmth too – and the session was recorded in Memphis with help from Willie Mitchell and David Porter, who both bring a bit of their older, solid soul grounding to this slightly more modern soul effort. Titles include "I Don't Want To Quit", "Highly Recommended", "I Apologize", "Too Sweet To Lose", "A Special Time", "Stand The Test Of Time", and "Sacrifice". (Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Trussel may have cut this one and only album at the end of the 70s – but they've got a strength that's kept them going for years – despite a lack of success at the time! The record's a sweet modern soul stunner – a record that picks up a sweet jazzy groove that's augmented with ... LP, Vinyl record album
