Heavenly work from The Walter Raim Concept – a warmly-tinged vocal group with a sound that's somewhere between Spanky & Our Gang and Singers Unlimited
! A few years earlier, and the group might have just been a stock "chorus vocals" sort of ensemble – but here, at the dawn of the 70s, they're recording with a style that has a fair bit of Sunshine Pop touches too – a mode that reminds us a lot of the Alan Copeland Singers
album on A&M, thanks to a nice undercurrent of groove in the mix! Singers
are both male and female – coming together with a sweet style that's a bit like The Free Design, but a bit more grown up too – and the titles include some originals by Raim, plus a few other well-chosen tunes. Tracks include "Endless Possibilities", "It's Always Somewhere Else", "A Woman Looking For Love", "City Of Grey", "Those Beautiful People", "Nice Lady", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", and "I Hear Bells".
