Come A Little Closer

LP (Item 10848) Chess, 1974 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

An excellent set of messed-up funky soul from Etta James – one of her killer early 70s sides for Chess! The album mixes together bluesy tracks and straight ahead soul – in a hip, bad-walking style that nicely updates Etta's older style for the 70s. The set includes a great funky cut called "Out On The Street Again", which sounds like it should be the theme to some blacksploitation film because it's got these cool strings, and a nice hard groove. Other cuts include "Power Play", "Mama Told Me", "You Give Me What I Want", and "Come A Little Closer".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album
