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.

Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group!

A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s!

Recorded during the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
