LP, Vinyl record album

5.00 6

One of the most soulful records ever recorded by Joe Bataan – a sweet blend of harmony soul and east coast styles, done in a mode that's a bit less Latin than some of his earlier records – but really wonderful overall! The style here is almost late 60s Philly soul – particularly that of the Intruders, O'Jays, or other harmony-heavy groups – and the production has a rootsy edge that really gets at the honesty in Joe's approach. And given Joe's wonderful approach to these heartfelt tunes, we hardly miss the Latin rhythms at all – as we're really in love with his soul tunes here! Titles include "Ordinary Guy", "Unwed Mother", "Young Gifted and Brown", "Under the Street Lamp", and "I'm No Stranger". This great remastered, limited edition vinyl version has 2 bonus tracks: "Latin Soul Square Dance" and "Call Me". (Remastered version. The vinyl is a limited numbered edition of 1000 copies.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Epsilon/CuBop, 1977. New Copy
