Love Jones

LP (Item 35451) DJM, 1980 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

One of the last great records by Johnny Guitar Watson – and an album that's got some wonderfully subdued moments, which is a real relief after some of the too-funky bits on some of his other sets from the late 70s! Johnny returns to the tight soul of the mid 70s Fantasy LPs – still keeping the guitar up in the mix, but also really focusing on his wonderfully compressed style of vocals – a slightly tripped out mode that dances along beautifully with the guitar – ta-ta-ing us to some great mellow grooves, and really letting Watson's personality shine! Titles include "Love Jones", "Asante Sana", "Lone Ranger", and "Children of the Universe". (Includes the lyric insert.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Motown, 1966. Very Good+
A very strong compilation of some of the best soul that Mary Wells recorded for Motown – and probably her only real album for the label. Although issued in 1966, the material hearkens from earlier days at Motown – and titles include "The One Who Really Loves You", "Two ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funky But!
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+
Funky but also loosely jazzy and soulful grooves from Young Holt Unlimited!
