Eddie Holman – 1977 – A Night To Remember

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 strange choice for the disco-oriented Salsoul label, this album actually works well – and stands as a good representation of the shifts in styles along the East Coast soul scene during the 70s.

Eddie’s voice is still in great shape, and he’s great on the ballads like “You Make My Life Complete“, “Immune To Love“, and “It’s Over” – but he also fits in great with the more up-tempo tracks, which were arranged and produced by Ron Baker and Norman Harris!

Tracks
A1 You Make My Life Complete 5:36
A2 Time Will Tell 2:37
A3 Immune To Love 3:38
A4 This Will Be A Night To Remember 5:07
B1 I’ve Been Singing Love Songs (By Myself) 3:41
B2 (Where Have You Been) All My Life 3:15
B3 Somehow You Make Me Feel 4:32
B4 It’s Over 4:15

One of those LPs where you wish you had been at the session cause it sounds like one helluva party. Eddie Holman applies his stratospheric falsetto to eight jams aimed at the disco club scene. He’s backed by a full complement of Philly’s finest musicians and a star-studded backing crew that includes Phil Hurtt, Ron Tyson, Bruce Gray, Carl Helm, and Barbara Ingram. Contains the hit “This Will Be a Night to Remember“, written by Ron Tyson & Ron Baker, which remains one of Holman’s most electrifying moments. Tyson who sung with the Ethics, Love Committee, and has enjoyed a long tenure with the Temptations co-wrote the LP’s three other treats “You Make My Life Complete,” “Immune to Love” and “Time Will Tell“.

Originally released on Salsoul Records in 1977, and produced by Norman Harris, Baker & Earl Young.
