Mystic Merlin (with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 616173) Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1980 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 11

A great record by east coast funky soul group Mystic Merlin – and a diverse one, with some jazzy uptempo club tracks, and others on the funkier edge of that style – excellent work from this oft-overlooked band on Capitol! There's a bit of that nice, smoothed out group soul sound that Capitol was hitting so well at the beginning of the 80s, but the band does it their own way – which includes a more searing, funkier sound on a few tunes! Titles include "Just Can't Give You Up", "Dark Side Of Your Love", "Dreams", "Burned To Learn", and "Don't You Want To Be A Star". 4 bonus tracks on this Big Break CD edition: "Burned To Learn (Single Version)", "Got To Make The Best (Of A Love Situation)" (12" Disco Version)", "Just Can't Give You Up (Single Version)" and "Can't Stop Dancing (No Matter What I Do (Single Version)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
