Leon Ware Musical Massage front

Amazing stuff! Arguably Leon Ware’s greatest record – and one of the greatest Motown records of the 70’s! The record is a beautiful set of interwoven mellow soul tracks, recorded right on the heels of Marvin Gaye‘s I Want...

graham central station release yourself front

Graham Central Station followed up its debut album rather swiftly with ‘Release Yourself’. But in contrast to the looseness and somewhat ‘laissez-faire’ attitude of that self-titled first LP, this sophomore effort is much more polished and ecclectic. Patryce ‘Choc’let’...

tommy-tate-1981-lp-front

Review and Tribute by Red Kelly Here’s the truly sublime Tommy Tate. Known in Soul circles for years as something like ‘The Greatest Singer You’ve Never Heard’, or ‘America’s Best Kept Secret’, I figured it was time to check...

luther-vandross-never-too-much-front

The debut solo album from Luther Vandross featured one outstanding song after another. Vandross concocts a bouncy, vibrant flow on his up-tempo numbers and an intimate, emotional connection on his moderate grooves and his lone ballad. The title track stormed...

eddie-holman-a-night-to-remember-front

A wonderful late 70s comeback for Eddie Holman – best known to folks for his earlier sweet soul work, but sounding equally great here on a set of club-heavy tracks! Although Eddie’s falsetto soul might have seemed like a...

Peabo Bryson Peabo front

Early work by Peabo – smooth soul with a sophisticated feel, but not as stiff and stodgy as his later work, which could sometimes verge on the adult contemporary side. Peabo’s voice has an honest soulful quality, and the...

smokey robinson smokey 1973

Smokey is a tentative step forward, carrying clear remnants of Smokey Robinson’s latter-day music with the Miracles, which shouldn’t come as a great surprise considering that it’s anchored by “Sweet Harmony”, a tune he wrote about and for the...

By Dan Phillips New Orleans native King Floyd, III, grew up in the intense, post-WWII musical atmosphere of the city, which was heavily laden with the heady rhythm and blues and early rock ‘n roll that changed the world....
