To Know You Is To Love You

LP (Item 509228) ABC/MCA, 1973 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 46

A set that has BB King teaming up with southern soul maestro Dave Crawford – an arranger/producer who helps BB find a whole new groove! Crawford's approach is wonderfully warm and soulful – almost a Hi Records sort of take on the music, which brings King's traditional blues into much fresher territory – an update of older Memphis modes, with a really great sound for the 70s. In addition to The Memphis Horns, there's also a bit of Philly help on the record too – thanks to Vince Montana's vibes, Norman Harris' guitar, Ron Kersey's keyboards, and Ronnie Baker's bass. Stevie Wonder makes a brief guest appearance on keyboards too – and titles include "Oh To Me", "Love", "Respect Yourself", "I Like To Live The Love", "Who Are You", "I Can't Leave", and "Thank You For Loving The Blues". (Cover has a small split on the top seam, with some stains and a sticker on the back. Label has a sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Like It Is
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Very nice stuff by Junior Parker – recorded by Bobby Robinson, and produced with a style that's a lot smoother than you'd expect. The record meshes blues and soul, in a manner that gives Junior some of the best settings we've ever heard on record. Titles include "Come Back Baby", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Checker, 1966. Poor
Electric Chicago blues – but with more of a soul sound than you'd expect. Milton's guitar phrases most of the blues on the record – but the arrangements also have a fair bit of hard Chicago soul in the mix, and they're handled by Gene Barge in a style that's similar to some of his work ...
