Flying High Together

LP (Item 30925) Tamla, 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

Excellent 70s work by Smokey and crew – sort of their way of showing the emerging east coast vocal stars how much talent they still had! The record has a sweet slightly-modern sound, with an approach that hints at Smokey's later Quiet Storm sound, and arrangements by David Van De Pitte and HB Barnum. Features a killer reading of Stevie Wonder's "We Had A Love So Strong", plus "Got To Be There", "You Ain't Livin 'Till You're Lovin", "Flying High Together", "It Will Be Alright", and a cover of "Betcha By Golly Wow". (Cover has a half split top seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Atlantic, 1972. Very Good-

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album
