I Am Your Woman, She Is Your Wife

LP (Item 2977) Prelude, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A well-done set from Barbara Mason – one that's light years from her earlier soul work, and which takes her strongly into more mature territory! The approach is a bit Philly disco, a bit mellower soul – and the more laidback cuts actually work the best – bubbling along like a gentler take on the Miami sounds at TK Records – produced by Weldon McDougal with some slight deeper soul touches at times. Barbara really shines on these mellow steppers – the great "It Was You Boy", "More Of You", "Darling Come Back Home", and the excellent title cut "I Am Your Woman, She Is Your Wife", Barbara's latest entry into the Barbara/Shirley answer song cycle. Other tracks include "Take Me Tonight", "So Good", and "Joy In My Mind". (White label promo. Cover has a cut corner & some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
