I Wanna Be Selfish

CD (Item 620866) Warner/Wounded Bird, 1974 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.90 11

Stone classic early work from Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson – really moving past the Motown sound – stepping wonderfully into a hip style of soul that would have a huge effect on the direction of R&B in the 70s! I Wanna Be Selfish is actually a very giving effort from the unstoppable duo, mixing intimate numbers with more sweeping sounds – some that borrow the soaring elements of gospel soul, others more mellow and delicate. Ashford & Simpson wrote terrific soul songs as often as many of us wash our hair, and this record's a prime batch! Titles include "Ain't That Somethin", "Don't Fight It", "Ain't Nothin But A Maybe", "Spoiled", "Everybody's Got To Give It Up", and "Main Line".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Warner, 1993. Used
A great mix of jazz and soul from Randy Crawford – and a 90s set that almost takes us back to the best sounds of her early career in the 70s! The work here is nicely relaxed – not trying for a hit, even when things are smooth or a bit uptempo – especially given the mis-steps that ... CD
