Lenny WhiteStreamline ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99
As the title says, Lenny White's streamlined his sound here – but to us that's a good thing, as it eliminates some of the overly-heavy jam sound that could ruin earlier records – making for a lean, clean groove that's mighty nice, and plenty darn soulful! Plus, Lenny's working here ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
