United Artists, 1972. Very Good ... $24.99
Sublime work from Leon Ware – the mellow soul master who's one of our favorite talents of the 70s!

A great post-Scepter album by Dionne Warwick – one that still has her working with Burt Bacharach, but at a level that's somehow more mature, more adult than even before!
