Like It Is . . . Like It Was

LP (Item 21410) Cadet, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

A beautiful album of soul tracks that has the Dells performing a number of new tracks ("Like It Is"), and doing new versions of some old favorites ("Like It Was"), with swirling baroque production by Charles Stepney that transforms the older ones into nice new tracks with a great late-60s Cadet sound. Titles include "Off Shore", "Open Up My Heart", "Oh, What A Day", "Long, Lonely Nights", and "I'm Not Afraid Of Tomorrow". Tough to find, too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
