Blame It On Love & All The Great Hits

LP (Item 386361) Tamla, 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

A very mellow overview of Smokey's later solo work – the post-Quiet Storm period, when he was easily slipping from classic soul into adult contemporary territory – and really crossing over big at the time! And while we could probably say that most of this stuff is far watered down from the original Motown inspiration, the work's also got a certain sort of gentle "adult" love song charm. Titles include 3 new tracks exclusive to the album – "Just Like You", "Don't Play Another Love Song", and "Just A Touch Away" – plus "Cruisin", "Blame It On Love", "Baby Come Close", "Tell Me Tomorrow", and "Being With You". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A bit smoother and more focused than some of Stevie's earlier work from the 70s – perhaps because he'd been having some chart success with his slicker numbers, but still a pretty groundbreaking batch of grooves that must have been awesome to hear when it first came out!

Versatile Impressions
ABC, 1969. Sealed
Less Curtis Mayfield tunes than usual – but the record still sounds great! The arrangements are by Johnny Pate, who handled the group's best work of the 60s – and he gives all the material a great sound that perfectly matches the smooth raspy harmonies of the trio. Curtis contributed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keep Smilin'
Philadelphia International, 1974. Very Good-
One of Bunny's earliest, and one of his best. Although some of the tracks have an uptempo pre-disco feel, there's none of the excesses of his later albums for Gold Mind. Instead, there's a solid Philly soul groove, and great production by Bunny, with arrangements by Norman Harris and Ronnie Baker. ... LP, Vinyl record album
