Back To The Front

LP (Item 556220) RCA, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

Surprisingly nice work from Peter Brown – a groover who still managed to hit on all burners after his early years at TK Records! Brown's definitely got a crossover feel here – clubby rhythms, but topped with vocals that belie his look on the front – and which, along with the catchy grooves, should have done more than enough to get Peter some wider play with early 80s audiences. Yet there's also some key dancefloor craft here – no-nonsense approach to the bottom of the tunes, and never too much cloying production up top – which serves to keep things nice and lean, and plenty clean too. Titles include "Give Me Up", "Heaven In Your Eyes", "Shall We Dance", "Danger", "The Love Game", "Satisfaction Guaranteed", and "Baby Gets High".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Feliciano!
RCA, Late 60s. Very Good+
An amazing record! By all rights, this shouldn't be so good – but it's an incredible album of haunting tracks that really has us coming back again and again over the years. The formula is simple: Jose plays late 60s pop tunes on acoustic guitar, and sings them in his spacey soulful voice. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bag Full Of Soul
RCA, 1966. Very Good+
Great early work from Jose Feliciano – and definitely the "bag full of soul" promised in the title, as the album's got a wonderfully heartfelt feel all the way through! Jose's voice is warm and beautifully melodic, and the arrangements are a bit more straight ahead than on later ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mmm
RCA, 1984. Very Good+
An 80s classics from Richard Dimples Fields – long one of the unsung heroes of the indie soul scene, stepping into the light in the 80s with some much-deserved hits! Fields has a high-toned voice that's almost falsetto soul – quite distinct among his contemporaries, and used in a style ... LP, Vinyl record album

You Fooled Me
RCA, 1978. Very Good
A great little debut album from the team of Len Ron Hanks and Zane Grey – songwriters who'd scored earlier in the 70s with tracks for Jerry Butler and LTD, but who also strike up a pretty strong groove on their own! The pair are from Chicago, but are recording in LA – and their sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

On Top Of Clear
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
One of their nice albums for RCA, with a sound that's a mix of ballads and up-tempo cuts, in the same style as a lot of other East Coast groups from the time. Van McCoy arranged and produced, and the LP includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing", plus "Two Different ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carol Townes & Fifth Avenue
RCA/Sixth Avenue, 1976. Very Good+
A really wonderful bit of group soul from the 70s – the debut effort from a quintet who'd worked hawking goods on TV at the time, but who are getting some tight production here from Lou Courtney – who pushes the album into much hipper territory than you might expect. Carol's in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City – Original Broadway Cast
RCA, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
An obscure post-Hair musical based around the soulful side of life in the inner city – featuring performers that include some of RCA's lesser-known soul acts of the time, like Delores Hall, Linda Hopkins, and Carl Hall. Tracks were written by Helen Miller and Eve Merriam – in kind of a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Down A Mountainside
RCA, 1975. Very Good+
Mid 70s magic from The Main Ingredient – a set that has the trio working with even more sophistication than on previous records, yet still holding onto all the harmonies that always made them great! Cuba Gooding's lead is wonderful – rich and full of feeling, and slinking nicely over ... LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, 1975. Very Good-
One of James Brown's last great funky records! The record's got a number of nice cuts – like the stone cold funky cuts "Your Love", which has a great break at the beginning, and "Superbad, Superslick". There's a few duds, like the remake of "Papa's Got a Brand New ... LP, Vinyl record album

De-Lite, 1980. Near Mint-
After having a pretty big bit of success with The Lovelites in the early 70s, producer Clarence Thomas put together the group Coffee as sort of a club/disco update of the harmony girl sound that he made famous back in the early days. This album's one of the few that the group ever made – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reflections
Arista, 1981. Very Good
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its ... LP, Vinyl record album

People Get Ready
ABC, 1965. Good+
One of the greatest albums ever from The Impressions – and a set that takes their work to a whole new level, by bringing in an even more righteous sound! The core elements of the group's 60s genius are all in place here – compositions from Curtis Mayfield, arrangements from Johnny Pate ... LP, Vinyl record album
