4.0 out of 5 stars Reaching for the Sky - a Soul Classic available on CD at last, 15 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reaching For The Sky / Crosswinds (Audio CD)
One of my all time favourite soul albums. Released in the late seventies when Disco was at its height Peabo sprung his debut capitol album upon us and its a mind blowing slice of classy soul.

The two most well known tracks set you up for the rest of the album 1. Reaching for the Sky and 2. Feel the fire, both covered by numerous artists but in my opinion Peabo leaves them in the starting blocks.

Other gems from the Reaching album include the spine tingling Hold on to the World, A fool already knows and Love walked out on me. The only weak track is "Have a Good Time",clearly aimed at the disco market and in all honesty it doesnt work that well.

Ive rated four stars because the follow up album Crosswinds is also included in this set and although there are a couple of good highlights namely the title track and "Im so Into You", it doesnt deliver with the same depth as Peabo's debut outing

However, having said all that this is still great value and any chance to get your hands on the "Reaching .... album needs to be taken instantly.

Enjoy, enjoy!!!!
