One of the greatest albums by this sweet east coast vocal group – also known to folks as the Golden Apples album, because of the crate full of gold-covered apples on the cover. The album's got a wonderful mellow harmony sound – arranged and produced by Van McCoy, much more in the style of his early uptown soul work than some of his other more overblown mid 70s work. Features the sublime stepper "When You're Young & In Love", the hit "I'm Gonna Walk Away From Love", and the cuts "Until We Said Goodbye", "Keep In Touch", "Angel Don't Fly Away", and "Hook it Up".

John Carter & Bobby Bradford —
Secrets ... LP Revelation, 1972. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A treasure of modernist jazz from the west coast underground! John Carter and Bobby Bradford were part of a hip LA soul/avant scene that included Horace Tapscott and Nate Morgan – and this album is one of a rare few that the pair cut together during their golden days of the late 60s and early 70s. The overall sound is hard to describe – part soulful spiritualism, part Ornette-like riffing and comping, part free jazz in an Ayler mode, part AACM experimentation – and the creative vision is very clear, very fully developed, and a key part of the American underground that rarely gets a chance to be heard. In addition to Carter's work on alto and clarinet, and Bradford's on trumpet, the session features piano by Nate Morgan and Bill Henderson, bass by Louis Spears and Henry Franklin, and drums by Ndugu or Bruz Freeman, the lost brother of Von and George! Titles include "Circle", "In A Pretty Place", and "Resevita's Dance". LP, Vinyl record album
