4.90 11

An excellent set of 70s soul – served up by a morphed version of Chicago's Independents, and produced to perfection by the mighty Tom Tom Washington! The set's got a warm jazzy finish that's a wonderful surprise – one that bubbles along with the album's uptempo grooves and sweet midtempo cuts – and which brings a new level of modern soul maturity to a group who had their roots in an older style of 70s group soul. There's mixed male and female vocals on the set, swirling together in the kind of harmonies we love on the best records from the time by Side Effect or Creative Source – and the record's got a depth of soul that's really wonderful, one that lets the harmonies come through as they would on a rougher, earlier indie soul release – but which sound even better here thanks to the tightness of the arrangements and production! The set Includes the single "Slippin' Away", plus the tracks "Wall To Wall Happiness", "I Wanna Try", "One In A Million", "Sweet Memories", and "Let's Talk It Over". (White label promo. Cover has light wear, unglued top seam, and a Factory Sealed sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A set of tinny, poppy dancefloor grooves from Shannon – very much in the spirit of her earlier hits for Mirage, and handled with a strange sort of charm that we're hard pressed to define ourselves!
