Very enjoyable reissue 70s soul,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How Do You Take Your Love (Audio CD)
This is a very good album by an artist who hit his peak early with the 'My Way' album that contains the classics 'Love Won't Let Me Wait', 'Loving You Is Mellow' and 'After Loving You'. The follow up album 'Jealousy' wasn't as good, the melodies are too complex and it didn't resonate with me on reissue recently. This album though is most enjoyable, the song writing is solid, the singing as good as always, the music is performed and produced to a high standard. Although recorded in 1978 this is modern soul rather than disco, Only the opening epic 'I Wanna Dance With You' moves from ballad to uptempo disco sections. 'Pretty Red Lips' initially sounds a complete steal from 'Me & Mrs Jones' by Billy Paul but soon becomes its own song. So all in all a welcome addition that will please fans of 1970s sophisticated soul as promoted by such as Ralph Tee and Andy Peebles. The artist enduring into the 1980s and had a dance-soul minor hit with 'I Believe In Love' on Society Hill with a more electronic sound and also had a 'boogie blues band' too. That first album was always a hard act to follow though.
