An overlooked gem from Chris Connor – a French session cut with arranger Michel Colombier, and a real standout from the rest of her recordings! There's a maturity here that's really great – a sound that's every bit as sad and sexy as Connor's work for Atlantic Records, but more sophisticated too – nicely measured in emotion, with maybe a Julie London touch at times, especially in the way the recording style brings out a bit of breathiness in Chris' vocals. Backings have a nice mix of guitar and strings, which creates a different feel than some of Connor's more jazz-based records – gentle and sexy, but never sleepy. Titles include "Meantime", "Johnny", "Chances Are", "I Love My Man", "Hum Drum Blues", and "I Could Go On Singing".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Atlantic (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth! Brown's still a hell of a songwriter, and one with a very socially-conscious eye – sharper here than before, with lots of ... CD
