The highlight here is Ray's cool cover of "Living For The City" – done with some great Fender Rhodes on the intro, and sung by Ray in a raspy voice that's quite different from the hit, or any other take on the tune! The track opens up nicely, and the keys alone are worth the price of admission. Other tracks are ok, but not great – and titles include "It Ain't Easy Being Green", "We're Gonna Make It", "For Mama", and "Sunshine". (Cover has a cutout notch and some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cadet, 1966. Very Good+
One of the better albums by this great Chicago soul studio group – but all of them are pretty nice! The great Richard Evans is still at the head of The Strings, and the album features solo work by Charles Stepney and Lennie Druss, in a cool breezy Chess/Cadet soul jazz kind of mode. The ...
