The first great solo album from Five Stairstep Keni Burke – really recreating himself as a completely different sort of artist – one who's all grown up, and able to work in this jazzy approach to modern soul that's completely great all the way through! Keni produced the record himself – and he gives things a sound that's tight, but never commercial – kind of a precursor to his "Rising To The Top" groove at RCA, but a bit more personal – with a Cali soul vibe that's very different than Burke's Chicago roots, with a quality that's a bit more indie than you might expect from the major label status of the record. The whole thing's great – and titles include "You Are All Mine", "Give All You Can Give", "Day", "From Me To You", "Shuffle", "Tell Me That You Love Me", and "Keep On Singing". (Cover has ring & edge wear, a cutout hole, a tiny split on the spine, and a bit of flaking in one corner on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An interesting move for Don Covay – a singer who started out as a fairly straightforward soul performer, then got a bit bluesier in the early 70s, then shifted back to a more pop-oriented groove. This one's got Don working with arrangements by Bobby Martin and Dexter Wansel that still keep ... LP, Vinyl record album
