Im Your Friend - Betty Everett - Love Rhymes (Vinyl, LP, Album)

The bespoke hits, provided by Holland-Dozier-Holland, just kept on coming. At 6 on the chart was another Motown act, another female with her name at the front of the group. Further down those Cash Box listings for December 13that 41, was a track by a singer who had been enjoying a revival in her fortunes this year. Betty Everett had left Mississippi for Chicago in while still a teenager. Looking forward to that. A striking thing about the listings for the 22nd of March was that at 2 was a singer who had played a major part in the previous success of the Motown vocal group.

David was fired by the Temptations in June Eugene Record had been plying his musical trade in Chicago for a decade.

Give It To Me This voice is so gorgeous. Deeply steeped in gospel, Lorraine Ellison possessed a vocal range, power and intensity that was maybe TOO intense for the mainstream, and thus only scored three chart hits during her career. Games That Lovers Play 2. He's My Guy 2. What a Difference A Day Makes 3. A Change is Gonna Come 3. If I Had A Hammer 2. When Love Flies Away 3.

Cry Me A River 3. Stay With Me 3. What Is A Woman 3. That's For Me 2. My Man's Gone Now 3. I investigated her due to a Maurice Gibb interview where Maurice seemed to be obessively enamoured with the Stay With Me Album). I must say she leaves the Bee Gees on planet Earth here and must know the moon as her backyard. Many soul singers leave me with the feeling that I get watching a particular Wednesday afternoon soap opera.

The sound of Lorraine Ellison's voice leaves me catatonic and feeling like I have no right to LP I have the blues. She grips you firmly by the back of the neck with her overwhelming display of raw human emotion The resulting album, 's Heart And Soul, was tailored to a jazz and pop crossover audience but never caught fire This is a gem everyone should own.

The set is a real burner through out - one that features mostly original material by Denise, recorded with a spare and compressed southern soul groove that's a lot more Stax Records than anything going down on Westbound at the time.

Denise is in perfect form vocally, too - never overdoing things, and really presenting her lyrics with a great sense of confidence - one that matches the best power of Ann Peebles, Carla Thomas, or any other contemporaries on the Memphis scene.

Greg Perry - - One for The Road. This his first solo album was originally released on Casablanca in It is now regarded as one the best soul albums of all time. Includes 'Variety is the Spice of life' and 'Come on down' Both popular and in demand modern soul tracks. Track Listings 1. Variety Is the Spice of Life 2.

I'll Be Comin Back 3. Will She Meet the Train in the Rain? Boogie Man 6. Love Is Magic [Instrumental] 7. One for the Road The Reviews 1 I'll be frank. I've searched for the artist who performed "Come on Down" for 30 years. Every LP the song would come on I'd stop what I was doing and just As you can see, it's a sentimental journey for me, and worth the price.

The rest of the album is very good. Folks, this is mid 70's straight ahead soul. I invite you to get a copy for yourself if ever the album goes domestic - which means that you can save a bundle!! Five stars for "Come on Down," for the Album) of the album, four stars!! It is a cult album among the Modern Soul lovers Modern Soul is the name given to Soul Music which survived during the Disco era, keeping the flame alive.

As for the quality and arrangements, no R'n'B artist from today, nor even Michael Jackson, could afford such an orchestra today, with string section, monster bass and all ; such were the times The album includes a very good instrumental track, "Love Is Magic", with handclaps, bass, wah-wah and all I love and the killers "Variety is the spice of life" - "Come on down".

For those who trust my taste so far, this is really amazing stuff. One of my favorite. Grab it brothers! Recorded live at Tsubo, Berkeley, California on June 25, Originally released on Riverside Includes liner notes by Orrin Keepnews.

With a rhythm section comprised of alumni from Miles Davis's first quintet Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums and the blazing tenor saxophone of Johnny Griffin complementing Wes Montgomery's bop leads on guitar, listeners will know they are in for a wild ride even before the album begins.

Add to this an enthusiastic audience in a Berkeley jazz club in where the performance was recordedand one has a full house in more ways than one. Post bop with a soulful, bluesy edge is the flavor of the day here, and the group works out accordingly on Dizzy Gillespie's "Blue 'N' Boogie" and on Montgomery's own compositions, the title track and "Cariba," both of which meld shuffle-boogaloo rhythms to bop pyrotechnics, casting the whole in a soul-jazz vibe.

A beautiful, smoothed-out read of "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" is a showcase for Montgomery's cool, melting tone. The Extended Resolution reissue of the CD provides superior audiophile quality. He achieved great commercial success during his last few years, only to die prematurely.

It had taken Wes a long time to become an overnight success. He started to teach himself guitar in using his thumb rather than a pick and toured with Lionel Hampton during ; he can be heard on a few broadcasts from the period. But then Montgomery returned to Indianapolis, where he was in obscurity during much of the s, working a day job and playing at clubs most nights. He recorded with his brothers vibraphonist Buddy and electric bassist Monk during and made his first Riverside album in a trio with organist Melvin Rhyne.

Other than a brief time playing with the John Coltrane Sextet which also included Eric Dolphy later in the year, Wes would be a leader for the rest of his life. Montgomery's recordings can be easily divided into three periods. The one exception was the ironically titled Fusion! All of the Riverside recordings have been reissued in a massive CD box set. With the collapse of Riverside, Montgomery moved over to Verve, where during he recorded an interesting series of mostly orchestral dates with arranger Don Sebesky and producer Creed Taylor.

These records were generally a good balance between jazz and accessibility, even if the best performances were small-group outings with either the Wynton Kelly Trio or Jimmy Smith. His jazz fans were upset, but Montgomery's albums were played on AM radio during the period. He helped introduce listeners to jazz, and his live performances were as freewheeling as his earlier Riverside dates. Unfortunately at the height of his success, he died of a heart attack. However, Montgomery's influence is still felt on many young guitarists.

The Softones - - Black Magic This album remind me of why i love good soul music! Turn the lights down low, cuddle up with your significant other, sip on your favorite beverage, and enjoy it. Track List Side 1 1. Call it love 2. Go on with the snow 3. Laundromat 4. That old black magic 2. Maybe Tomorrow 3. Bulldog Dog Power Song 4. Love Child. The Reviews. Based on the power and sheer beauty of these songs it's difficult to understand why The Softones' recordings never matched the popularity of those of The Delfonics, The Stylistics, The Dramatics or The Dells.

This group's singers were just as good as those of the above-mentioned groups. No "Sweet Soul" fan should be without this. I have always been a great fan of the Softones and were delighted with the release of this cd "Best of"back in the nineties but were first introduced to these soul greats as a teenager and remember my elder brother spinning the tracks of the Black Magic album over and over again.
