4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Sep 2010
Released March 2010, Soul Brother CD SBPJ 41 breaks downs as follows (76:33 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 9 are their debut album "Natural Four" issued 1974 in the USA on Curtom CRS 8600

Tracks 10 to 17 are their 2nd album "Heaven Right Here On Earth" issued 1975 in the USA on Curtom CU 5004 and on Curtom K 56142 in the UK

Track 18 is a rare USA-only 7" single issued in late 1973 on Curtom CR 1984 - it's a cover version of Curtis Mayfield's "Eddie You Should Know Better". The original Mayfield version is on his 1972 "Superfly" soundtrack album, but is given a different arrangement here by The Natural Four.

Tracks 19, 20 and 21 are "I Think I Found The Girl", "How Have You Been" and "Get It Over With" - taken from their 3rd album "Nightchaser" issued in 1976 in the USA on Curtom CU 5008

Charly reissued "Natural Four" on CD in 1996 and Sequel reissued both albums in 2000, but this is the first time they've been paired together and had 4 bonus tracks thrown in too. But the big draw on these albums for Seventies Soul and Funk fans is the songwriting genius and involvement of LeROY HUTSON - not to mention the fact that original vinyl issues of these 2-Step monsters have been costing punters huge amounts of money for years. The booklet is a fairly basic 8-page colour affair with liner notes by Laurence Prangell and musician/album credits. It doesn't say who remastered what and where, but the sound quality is superb - very clear, clean and good on the ear.

This is classy Soul - sort of Philly International meets Cadet meets Brunswick - funky love songs one minute ("Try Love Again" - lyrics above) and social commentary tunes the next ("Things Will Be Better Tomorrow").

The original vinyl of this classy album would have set you back £50 to £75 thankfully it's now on CD.. The Natural Four were one of the best "two step" soul quartets ever to come out of the US and I don't think I could compare the unique quality and range of their harmonies with another group save perhaps the Dells. The tracks You Bring Out The Best In Me, Try Love Again, Heaven Right Here On Earth and Love's So Wonderful make this album cover price great value.. silky vocals,expansive harmonies and unforgettable lyrics.. brilliant stuff

Wow... what a discovery!!. I only had a couple of Natural Four songs in my collection and decided to buy this CD after reading the favourable reviews. Every track on this CD is top drawer sweet soul with exquisite harmonies, arrangements and solid production. The voices and instrumention are fantastic, reminding me of one of my favourite soul bands, The Detroit Spinners. It is one of those very rare CD's you can let play without having to skip lots of tracks. Worth every penny and a truly fitting addition to my beloved soul collection. An inspired release from Soul Brother Records. Highly recommended.

"...What's On The Inside...What's On The Outside..." 7 Sep 2010
By Mark Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Released March 2010 in the UK, Soul Brother CD SBPJ 41 is a 21-track CD reissue and breaks downs as follows (76:33 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 9 are their debut album "Natural Four" issued 1974 in the USA on Curtom CRS 8600

Tracks 10 to 17 are their 2nd album "Heaven Right Here On Earth" issued 1975 in the USA on Curtom CU 5004 and on Curtom K 56142 in the UK

Track 18 is a rare USA-only 7" single issued in late 1973 on Curtom CR 1984 - it's a cover version of Curtis Mayfield's "Eddie You Should Know Better". The original Mayfield version is on his 1972 "Superfly" soundtrack album, but is given a different arrangement here by The Natural Four.

Tracks 19, 20 and 21 are "I Think I Found The Girl", "How Have You Been" and "Get It Over With" - taken from their 3rd album "Nightchaser" issued in 1976 in the USA on Curtom CU 5008

But the big draw on these albums for Seventies Soul and Funk fans is the songwriting genius and involvement of LeROY HUTSON - not to mention the fact that original vinyl issues of these 2-Step monsters have been costing punters huge amounts of money for years. The booklet is a fairly basic 8-page colour affair with liner notes by Laurence Prangell and musician/album credits. It doesn't say who remastered what and where, but the sound quality is superb - very clear, clean and good on the ear.

This is classy Soul - sort of Philly International meets Cadet meets Brunswick - funky love songs one minute ("Try Love Again" - lyrics above) and social commentary tunes the next ("Things Will Be Better Tomorrow"). When they slow it down on "Can This Be Real" (a R&B chart hit Stateside in December 1973) or the lovely "Heaven Right Here On Earth", you're reminded of The Dells, The Chi-Lites, The Main Ingredient, Blue Magic and of course - LeRoy Hutson solo stuff. There's even a Hall & Oates vibe going on in there too.

Genius choice goes to the lone 45 cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Eddie You Should No Better" sounding not unlike a more string-filled outtake - it's superb and a real rediscovery. They've even included the better dancer tracks from the disco-fuelled 3rd album which sounds like AWB with Ben E King in places, but you're likely to return to the first two albums more because that's where the real quality is...

Very tasty indeed - this is another excellent reissue from Soul Brother Records of the UK. Recommended.

This a rare, hard to find collection of Natural Four songs. It takes me back in time to when life was much simpler. I thouroughly enjoyed the CD.
