Jean Carn

LP (Item 3240) Philadelphia International, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Jean Carn was one of the best-ever singers to hit the Philly International label – a sophisticated diva with a style that would strongly influence soul music for the next 10 years, and a downright compelling voice that crafted some of the best modern soul of her generation. Although Jean started out as a spiritually-oriented singer working with husband Doug Carn and Earth Wind & Fire, this debut album has her grooving in a style that resembles the classy Columbia sound of Marlena Shaw. Like Shaw, Carn takes the best of her jazz roots, and strips off the nonsense to adapt to a more modern style. Gamble & Huff take a great deal of care with the album – and are careful not to bury Jean's voice in overly club-oriented arrangements, as they occasionally did with other female singers. Includes the hit groover "Free Love", plus "Don't You Know Love When You See It", "You Are All I Need", "You Got A Problem", and "If You Wanna Go Back". (Cover has some staining and wear, with waviness and a few peeled spots on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Westbound, 1973. Near Mint-
A pretty sweet follow-up to Denise LaSalle's debut for Westbound – and like that set, another album recorded down in Memphis – with a razor-sharp sound that's far better than the treatment she got in later years!

People, 1973. Good+
An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ...
