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.

Tamla, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
One of the classics, and an album that's filled with a sense of majesty and power that will knock you dead – despite the stupid cover of Stevie sitting on a hill, playing in the dirt! By this point, Stevie knows he's on top of the world – and he's honing the sophisticated experiments ... LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, 1979. Very Good+
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely ... LP, Vinyl record album
