LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

A lost treasure from Barry White – the one and only album recorded by Danny Pearson, one of the few singers that Barry did as "special projects" during the 70s! Like Gloria Scott and Tom Brock – two other White-produced singers of the time – Pearson's got a wonderful approach that's quite different than Barry's own work – a fragile, sensitive, sweet soul style that's a lot like indie work from the New Jersey/Philly scene of the early 70s, produced with a bit more of the Barry White flair. The sound is sublime – with magical orchestrations by White and Gene Page, wrapped lovingly around Pearson's great vocals. Titles include "Honey Please, Can't You See?", "What's Your Sign Girl?", "Is It Really True Girl", and "Walkin In the Rain With The One I Love". (Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has ring & edge wear with a sticker along the top seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Change
Unlimited Gold, 1982. Near Mint-
It would be easy to write off some of Barry's later work, if only because his 70s output was so stellar – and ubiquitous. But this early 80s LP finds Barry trading in his patented rapping over sultry slow jams for crisp uptempo 80s groove numbers – but doesn't leave his or Gene Page's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Living All Alone
Philadelphia International, 1986. Very Good+
Sparkling modern soul from the lovely Phyllis Hyman – and an album that has the singer picking up the wonderfully smooth groove that had become the Philly International sound of the mid 80s. This format works surprisingly well for Phyllis – quite possibly more so than it did even for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joneses
Epic, 1977. Very Good+
A killer for the Joneses – probably their strongest album all the way through, thanks to some great production and arrangements by Bobby Eli! The album's got the group taking the fragile harmony style of their earlier records, and filtering it through the Philly powerhouse groove to create a ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Gotcha
Dial, 1972. Very Good+
A pivotal album for Joe – and one in which he turned his previously mellow southern soul style into a heavier funkier sound for the 70s! Includes the title cut, which a whole generation rediscovered in Reservoir Dogs, plus "Give the Baby Anything the Baby Wants", a big sample cut ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stax, 1978. Very Good+
Heavy dancefloor grooves from Stax, featuring this one-time heavier funk group, now hitting a sound that's aimed a bit more at the clubs. There's lots of slap bass and electric keyboard riffs, and a good ensemble sound that's a bit in the P-Funk camp of things. Titles include "Get It ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pointer Sisters
Blue Thumb, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Their first album, and the one that's got their big version of Allen Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can" – which starts with a nice break, too! Other tracks include "Sugar", "Pains & Tears", "Jasa", "River Boulevard", and "Cloudburst". ... LP, Vinyl record album

Survival
Philadelphia International, 1975. Very Good+
Not one of their most classic Philly LPs, but still a nice batch of soul tracks with the usual perfect Gamble-Huff production, and harmonies that definitely go the distance! Tracks include "What Am I Waiting For", "Give The People What They Want", "Rich Get Richer", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cadet, 1974. Very Good+
Excellent later album by the Dells that has them working with Don Davis on production, and singing in an excellent smooth soul setting that still lets their raspy soulful harmonies shine through, but which also gives them some excellent seventies grooves in the background. Nearly every cut's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Promise Of Love
State, 1977. Very Good+
The classic first album from Delegation – a great male soul trio from the late 70s, and one who sounds great on both sweet mellow tunes and more upbeat ones! Delegation have a sound that's quite unique, especially on this album – a groove with slightly tropical traces on some numbers, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Man-Child
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+
Funky mid 70s Herbie – one his funkiest of the era! Herbie plays a host of kool keyboards (like Fender Rhodes, Arp, Hohner Clavinet, etc), and he's joined by a group that includes just about all of the Headhunters (Paul Jackson and Mike Clark in the rhythm section), as well as Wah Wah Watson ...

Electrodynamics
Command, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Not his most out there record, but filled with lots of nice little tracks on the Lowrey Organ. Includes a version of "Mack the Knife" that really swings, plus "Big Ben Bossa" and lots of standards, like "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", 'Fly Me To The Moon" and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lonesome Traveler
Cadet, 1966. Very Good
An excellent example of the massive groove that Ray Bryant set up during his 60s years at Cadet – a simple soul jazz trio style, but augmented with dual horn backing – which makes for a tightly stepping sound that's all-soulful, all the way! Bryant's left hand is nice and hard on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
