How Can I Love (Now That You're Gone)/Stand Tall

7-inch (Item 480005) Truth & Soul, 2009 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record


5.00 3

A sparkling debut – and a whole new side of Truth & Soul! The Olympians feature Toby Panzer on keyboards and vibes – and work here with a laidback groove that's totally great – kind of a combination of slow funk and instrumental sweet soul, with mellow beats, El Michels horns, and a really warm sound on the piano! "Stand Tall" is mellow too, but with more of a super-dope feel – quietly tripping grooves with snapping drums, snakey guitar, and more of those great horns over the top!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Truth & Soul, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)
Lee Fields takes on a great tune by JJ Cale – and serves the whole thing up in a deep soul vibe that's a nice change from usual – almost a country soul sort of vibe, with a different late 60s mode than some of Lee's other work! The tune bubbles and brews with a heady sort of energy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

My World/Love Comes And Goes
Truth & Soul, 2007. New Copy
One of the greatest tunes we've ever heard from Lee Fields – a super-mellow bit of funk that's more like Marvin Gaye than some of his previous James Brown-styled tunes! The track's got a great laidback groove – vibes, snapping drums, and just a bit of strings – all couched ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Truth & Soul, Late 70s. New Copy
Two cookers from Lee Fields – both cuts that show him at the top of his game! "Fought For Survival" has great drums and a heavy, fuzzy, funky sort of vibe – a righteous bassline that almost echoes Norman Whitfield work with The Temptations – but with a tighter funky 45 ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Faithful Man (main, bare bones version)

Kana Soro/Idarga Bidi
Academy, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Totally massive – and one of the most hard-breaking Afro Funk tunes we've ever heard! "Kana Soro" has these killer drums at the start – really hitting hard with a wicked crackle right away – then rolls into an organ line that almost feels like "The Message" by ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Don't Commot Me/Obiara Wondo
Academy, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
We've never been commotted – so we're not sure what it means to "Don't Commot Me" – but we can say that the tune is a wickedly sharp bit of Afro Funk, complete with some very fast-riffing guitar! The instrument's a lot more tight than on some of the looser Afro numbers of the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy
A sweet groover from Khemistry – and maybe one of the group's best tracks ever! "Can You Feel The Love" has a solid step and a warm groove right from the start – sweet rhythms that move at a nice post-disco sort of vibe – more tight 80s club, and mixed with a haunting ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Expansion (UK), 1970/1977. New Copy
Ronnie Dyson knocks it out nicely on "I Want To Be Where You Are" – a warm Chuck Jackson/Marvin Yancy number that really shows off Dyson's best modern soul modes – an ability to really soar with the groove with a real richness of vocals! The flip's Ronnie's big early hit ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
