5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning collection of Mellow 70's Grooves, 14 Mar. 2000
This review is from: Mellow Mellow (Audio CD)
To start with, congratulations to Harmless for yet another superb collection. This mellower set (hence the name) is another fine addition to 'The Breaks' and 'Pulp Fusion' series, 'Stand Up and be Counted' and 'I'm a Good Woman'- they are fast becoming THE definitive collection masters.
For the trainspotters amongst us, you'll be happy to know that there are Hip Hop samples galore in here: from the Eric B and Rakim ('Mahogony') of Al Green to the Black Moon ('Buck 'Em Down' Remix)of The Walrus of Love himself, Mr. Barry White plus many, many more.
But this collection demands far more attention than just 10 second segments of songs, for this really is a wonderful compilation lovingly put together by people who know whats up and, boy, they've mined some golden nuggets here.....
I've yet to mention the cornerstone of this purchase though, for this is worth the price of admission alone : the ULTRA rare Roy Ayers Music Productions (RAMP) version of 'Everybody Loves the Sunshine' which has to be heard to be believed and in my opinion even surpases the magnificent original. Kick back, relax and let it wash over you for this is why the word 'beautiful' was invented.
Roy makes 2 further appearences here, firstly as producer on Sylvia Striplin whose magnificent 'You can't Turn Me Away' is another highlight, as well as my personal favorite here, RAMPS's 'Daylight' which provides the mellowest stoned bassline to the killer 'Bonita Applebum' by Quest.
On the downside, a few predictable tunes roll in (yet another calling of Quincy Jones 'Summer In The City' and Isaac Hayes 'Ikes Mood') to take a little of the glimmer away but it's only the gripe of familiarity that can be levelled at quality tunes such as these.
As the marvellous Lowrell says 'Mellow Mellow, Right On'. Buy it !
