Phyllis Hyman

LP (Item 4350) Buddah, 1977 — Condition: Very Good
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Far and away our favorite album by Phyllis Hyman – her first, and with lots of the same smooth jazzy soul touches you'd find in her work with Norman Connors! Phyllis is still as sophisticated as she is on later albums, but there's a bit freer style to the record – and Phyllis breaks a bit from her normally restrained classy sound, into one that opens up a bit more emotionally – really soaring out here in a way that's quite different than later hits, with a vibrancy that still makes this album our favorite Hyman effort after all these years. Arrangements are by Onaje Allen Gumbs and Jerry Peters – and the album features the sublime jazzy groover "Children Of The World", which would sound great next to any Roy Ayers cut of the time! Other tracks include "Loving You Losing You", "One Thing On My Mind", "No One Can Love You More" and "Beautiful Man Of Mine". (Cover has some wear, with some marker in one corner. Label has some marker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Buddah/Arista, Late 70s/Early 80s. Very Good
10 tracks from Phyllis' years at Buddah and Arista – some of her finest work, and most of it an extremely unique blend of smooth jazz and modern R&B, done in a style that many tried to copy over the years. The tracks are produced by the likes of Skip Drinkwater, Mtume, and Chuck Jackson ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Satin Featuring Fred Parris
Buddah, 1976. Very Good+
Like a lot of the younger singers from the Doo Wop era, vocalist Fred Parris (from the 5 Satins) made the shift to more modern soul styles as the years went by. This 1976 album has him leading a modern version of the 5 Satins named Black Satin, and recording for Buddah with a similar sound to some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1974. Very Good+
Obscure mellow midtempo soul LP on Buddah from 1973. The record's got an easy mellow feel that's quite nice and a bit folksy – and Heath has a progressive righteous approach that reminds us a bit of Terry Callier. The songwriting's a bit varied, but the nicest moments have that kind of hip ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Motion Picture Experience
Buddah, 1973. Near Mint-
A cover record – but a great one! Unlike some of the Pickwick knock-off albums from the time, this blacksploitation effort by Cecil Holmes is top-shelf all the way – as Cecil's one of the best funky bandleaders of the early 70s. The large group on the album features funky keyboards by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burning Of Atlanta
Buddah, 1973. Very Good+
Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stairsteps (1970)
Buddah, 1970. Very Good-
A nice one from the Five Stairsteps – and even if the cover has them looking like a bunch of gangsters, the music's still sweet sweet soul, with a good Chicago groove! The band are clearly trying to grow up here – dropping the "five" from their name, and trying to look all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Come By Here
Dynamo, 1967. Very Good+
Although they're best known for their hit "Mockingbird" (not on this album), Inez and Charlie were always pretty darn great, and had a raw male/female style in the vein of Ike & Tina or Mickey & Sylvia. This record's one of the few they ever cut on their own, and it features lots ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mellow Dreamin'
Cotillion, 1970. Very Good-
One of their wildest and most beautiful LPs! By this point, Young & Holt getting past their usual funky Brunswick sound here, and they've opened up the groove a lot with lots of nice extra bits. The best proof of this is their fantastic take on "Midnight Cowboy", which has an insane ... LP, Vinyl record album
