✨✧ Matthew Larkin CassellMatthew Larkin Cassell – The Complete Works ... CD
Stones Throw, Late 70s. Used ... $9.99
The complete 70s works of Matthew Larkin Cassell – an artist who's been really rediscovered and revived in the past decade or so, now finally getting his full due in a lavish Stones Throw package! Cassell's music is sweetly jazzy, and with a nice undercurrent of soul – one that's ripe for rediscovery – and it's presented here in a set that features the full albums Pieces and Matt The Cat. There's a wonderful mix of moods going on here – a quality that perfectly sums up the genre-trading aspect of the Bay Area scene back in the day – a place where elements of jazz, soul, and mellow rock could mingle together in a unique blend, with qualities that were always way more than the parts of the whole! Cassell's keyboard work is especially nice – always warm and jazzy, with sweet electric touches that underscore his vocals – and given that the only other instrumentation is guitar, bass, and drums, there's plenty of room for the keys to soar out nicely. The vocals are great too – often a bit compressed in the production, and set to some wonderful self-penned lyrics that are right up there with the best 70s work of this type. Titles include "Love To Love ", "When I Go Down", "In My Life", "One Night", "Another Day Gone", "Holiday", "Heaven", "Rendezvous", "Ecoutez Moi", "You", "Beggin To Stay", "When I Go Down", and "Close To You Tonight".
