It's the summer of , and the whole world is joyfully singing, "Grazing in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it! While the group never quite reached those heights again, the Friends did produce a small body of work in their brief lifetime that has held up well.
The foursome's two other major hit singles, "Love or Let Me Be Lonely" and "Going in Circles" have joined "Grazing in the Grass" in the permanent rotations of most "fun and oldies" formats. Angela Bofill-The Definitive Collection. Even though this compilation still isn't a total look at Bofill's artistry, The Definitive Collection does offer the most comprehensive look at her work available. If you haven't cottoned on to Michael Franks by now, it's time you wised up. Anyway, the Franks repertoire is cool, hip and sexy-smart.
There's a hypnotic quality to the grooves - they seem familiar and you swear you've heard them somewhere else before. The lyrics are quirky, observational and intelligent - most of all intelligent. If you've not traveled down the Franks road, then this greatest hits collection is a fair place to start. But there's a danger here. Once sampled, you may find yourself on the right side of a Michael Franks' addiction.
Subtle vocals, understated instrumentation, warmth and intimacy Michael Franks is the quintissential adult contemporary artist: clever enough to win jazz listeners and slick enough to lure pop fans. Oddball tunes like "Baseball" and "When Sly Calls" are forgiven in the face of such beauty. Sam Riney-At Last. The first 2 Motown albums by the Late Syreeta -- both of them recorded under the supervision of her partner Stevie Wonder! The genius of these records is hard to describe accurately -- a sort of spacey soul approach that builds on the work of Stevie at the time, but which also has traces of Minnie Riperton -- and it's own sort of fragile, gentle, groove.
The Syreeta album is very spare -- often just featuring bits of electronics and percussion next to Syreeta's pure and honest vocals -- and while the Stevie Wonder Presents album works in slightly fuller arrangements, the sound is still nicely stripped-down overall -- very unique for the time, not only for Motown, but for all of mainstream soul as well! Cosmic righteousness abounds, and the 20 track CD is a delight throughout!
Limited edition of copies -- my copy is numbered of Nice collection of the funky funky soul tracks cut by the great Southside Movement from Chicago. Pics Coming Soon. This CD reissues keyboardist Patrice Rushen's first two recordings as a leader except for one selection "Puttered Bopcorn" from the first date that was left out due to lack of space. Twenty at the time of the earlier set, Rushen showed a great deal of potential for the future, potential that at least in the jazz world was unfortunately never realized.
Rushen is heard on the Prelusion album heading a septet that includes tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson the most memorable soloist , trumpeter Oscar Brashear, trombonist George Bohanon and Hadley Caliman on reeds; the music is essentially advanced hard bop with touches of fusion. The later date has a similar group without Henderson and with guest spots for flutist Hubert Laws and guitarist Lee Ritenour. So overall this CD, which should have served as a bright beginning for the young keyboardist, is practically the artistic highpoint of Patrice Rushen's erratic career.

And lest Donnie be dismissed as an imitator a studied, well-versed disciple clearly, yes, but certainly not a clone , he explores a wealth of his own refreshingly original ideas, stretching out with genuine invention the gorgeous cosmic explorations of "Heaven Sent," the jittery electronic backdrop of "Masterplan" as often as he reaches backwards into retro styles invigorating bossa nova on "Do You Know?
It is as bold and self-assured a debut as soul music has seen since D'Angelo's Brown Sugar. It falls just short of brilliance only because it borrows a few tricks too many from its obvious musical models, but even with its flaws, the album is such a vivid, radiant outpouring of soul-stirring talent and passion that it could fill two hearts. Labels: Album to check out. A much-needed look at the deep deep deep soul talents of Gloria Edwards -- a very hip Texas singer from the 70s with an excellent voice!
Gloria's great in just about any setting here -- from southern funk, to sad ballad material, to some of the set's more straight soul numbers -- and the package offers a whopping 21 tracks of Gloria's work for the Crazy Cajun label, more than enough to get you started dipping into her rich bag of talents.
The Fifth Dimension-Live! Plus Studio Recordings. Plus Studio Recordings is a collection of some of the better known tracks performed by the Fifth Dimension. Although the band had a huge hit with their version of "Aquarius," that song is nowhere to be found here. Instead, what this album shows is a band that helped create the fast-paced funk music that would eventually turn into disco as the '70s progressed.
