An excellent bit of modern soul by Debra Laws – really her only album, but an instant classic nonetheless! The set's an impeccable batch of smooth tracks – recorded with production by brothers Ronnie and Hubert – and Debra's vocals have a sophisticated jazzy touch that sets the record strongly above most other female soul records of the time. Includes the incredible title cut "Very Special" – a classic mellow groover that we'll never tire of – plus loads of other great tracks, like "Be Yourself", "Your Love", and "Long As We're Together". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear & a spot of price sticker residue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
