Platinum Hook

LP (Item 12164) Motown, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

An overlooked groover from late 70s Motown – served up on a record that might look more like a heavy metal outing, but which is tight clubby soul all the way through! Platinum Hook are a bit in the funky territory of early Commodores – save for the fact that they've got one female singer in amongst the guys – and like that more famous combo, they have a really great way of balancing bassy groovers with a few mellower moments to really round out their sound – some slower-stepping cuts that still bring funk into the rhythms, but in a nicely laidback way! Titles include "City Life", "Gotta Find A Woman", "Til I Met You", "Hooked For Life", and a cover of George Clinton's "Standing On The Verge (Of Getting It On)". (Shrinkwrap is shopworn, with several tears.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
