I Enjoy Being A Girl

LP (Item 19325) Warner, 1966 — Condition: Used

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

Mel Torme gives Barbara McNair some mighty big props in the notes to this one – and hearing the set, we certainly have to agree! The record may well be McNair's most dramatic of the 60s – still a mix of vocal and jazz styles with a touch of soul – but also done with a bit more dynamism in the arrangements, and sung in a bold, powerful voice that's quite different from some of her more easy-going Motown recordings of later years. A good portion of the work here is from 60s shows, but Barbara sings the tunes with a personal style that gets past their roots – and backings are by Ralph Carmichael, in a way that's sweet one minute, swinging the next! Titles include "The Best Is Yet To Come", "My Love Is A Wanderer", "The Friendliest Thing", "On The Other Side Of The Tracks", "If Love Ain't There", and "For Lonesome Me". (White label promo.

Back On The Right Track
Warner, 1979. Very Good+
Sly Stone's definitely back on the right track here – returning to the heights of his earlier powers in this late 70s comeback album for Warner Brothers! The record's got a lot of touches of the old Sly funky sound, but it's done in a slightly tighter style too – a bit more polish than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Even better than the first Warner album from Crackin – a sweet little cooker with loads of subtle charm! The group have a really great feel – tight, but never commercial – and never too AOR, as well – a careful balance that's probably one of the reasons why they never ... LP, Vinyl record album

Belle Album
Hi Records, 1977. Very Good+
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar! Of course, he gets a bit of help – from Fred Jordan and Reuben Fairfax, whose names are hidden in smaller type, under the message on the back that says ... LP, Vinyl record album
