Rain Fire

LP (Item 1991) Mercury, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

Smooth mellow soul from one of the great under-discovered talents of the 70s! David Oliver has a sweet voice that's kind of inspired by Marvin Gaye's more sexy work for Motown – but which is also produced here by Wayne Henderson with a slightly jazzy tip, and some spacey arrangements that really bring out a sensual quality that makes the tracks sparkle! There's some great mellow groovers and gentle steppers on the album – and tracks include "Summer Love", "I Keep Looking For A Better Way", "Never Seen A Girl Like You", "Puppets On A String", "Private Tonight", "I Remember You When", and "Could It Be Love". (Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Con Funk Shun
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Early work from Con Funk Shun – different than their later, better known hits!

Mercury, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
By this point the Players had moved into a smooth, polished territory that never betrayed their roots in a funkier sound, yet hitting a more gliding groove overall. Includes "Angel", "Merry-Go-Round", "Don't Fight My Love", "Body Vibes" and "O-H-I-O&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's Better To Travel
Mercury, 1987. Very Good
A surprisingly great guilty pleasure from the 80s – the first album from Swing Out Sister, recorded when all the excitement of the UK post punk scene had just about faded, and most of the groups had left their exciting early roots behind. Enter these guys, picking up the last shreds of jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

What It Is
Polydor, 1972. Very Good-
Wild weird stuff from Edwin Birdsong – an artist who's best known for his work with Roy Ayers during the 70s. This effort's got a very similar righteous soul sound to some of Roy's early work for Polygram – with a mix of jazz, soul, funk, and lots of cosmic wisdom – although ... LP, Vinyl record album

Night Grooves
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
A great album of funky dancefloor tunes! Originally issued in 1978, and clearly for the New York dancefloor crowd – the record takes the earlier work of funk group The Blackbyrds, and remixes the tracks slightly to pump up the groove a bit for the dancers. While the approach might not sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
