Flying High Together

LP (Item 30925) Tamla, 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

Excellent 70s work by Smokey and crew – sort of their way of showing the emerging east coast vocal stars how much talent they still had! The record has a sweet slightly-modern sound, with an approach that hints at Smokey's later Quiet Storm sound, and arrangements by David Van De Pitte and HB Barnum. Features a killer reading of Stevie Wonder's "We Had A Love So Strong", plus "Got To Be There", "You Ain't Livin 'Till You're Lovin", "Flying High Together", "It Will Be Alright", and a cover of "Betcha By Golly Wow". (Cover has a half split top seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Slick
Tamla/Motown, 1977. Very Good
Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most. The album's a great batch of tracks with production by Leonard Caston, who also produced some of Eddie's earlier works, and the set's pretty darn great all the way through. With the cuts "Someth ...

He's A Friend
Tamla, 1976. Near Mint-
One of Eddie's monster LPs of the 70s! The whole affair was produced by Norman Harris, who, along with Vince Montana and TG Conway, gave the album a sweet set of Philly arrangements that worked perfectly with Eddie's strident soul-boogie style. Ballads and uptempo groover work equally well – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boogie Down!
Tamla, 1974. Very Good+
One of Eddie's classic dancefloor groovers for Tamla, with production and arrangements by the hit team of Frank Wilson and Leonard Caston! The album keeps Eddie's hit "boogie" groove going strong – grooving mostly in a midtempo smooth soul style that would become a dominant ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, 1963. Very Good+
An amazing early record from Stevie Wonder – the kind of set that shows what raw power and starmanship he had even at a wee wee age! The set was recorded live, in a style that lets Stevie really open up on the full range of his talents – including harmonica, bongos, and drums – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvelettes On Stage
Tamla, Mid 60s. Poor
One of the rarest of Motown's "On Stage" series, and a nice live recording of The Marvelettes that has the girls sounding a bit rawer than on their studio recordings. Titles include the groovy "Twistin Postman", plus "Beechwood", "Playboy", "Tossing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Time
Tamla, 1977. Very Good
A Smokey Robinson soundtrack to a film that's scarcely remembered – but Smokey's songs are great, his singing passionate and soulful, and the songs work well in a number of soul modes! Some of the material approaches a rave up gospel soul mode, with church ready organs and chorus vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paint It Black
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 ...

Back To The World
Curtom, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, ... LP, Vinyl record album
