5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Resurrection the Second Time Around, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 2nd Resurrection (Audio CD)
When this album was originally released in 1976, Blues & Soul journalist Dave Godin waxed lyrical about it virtually every fortnight. So much so, in fact, that eventually I felt compelled to pick up a copy, an action I never regretted. Since the Five Stairsteps biggest hit Ooh Child had never made it in the UK I was unfamiliar with the group, making 2nd Resurrection more of a first encounter for me.

A decade later the impending arrival of my daughter meant I had to offload most, if not all of my extensive vinyl collection, the other room upstairs being deemed by my wife as a ‘bedroom’ rather than my interpretation of ‘music library’.

Fortunately, over the years I have managed to re-obtain many of the classic albums on CD (I much prefer CDs to downloads), although there have been one or two holdouts, in particular much of The Commodores and The Temptations later catalogues. This album too was missing, although I eventually spotted somewhere that it had finally been released on CD back in January.

I was initially reluctant to committing to purchase this – I’m not particularly keen on vinyl drops, although having scouted around the internet, it was a case of buying this version or not having it altogether (only some eight tracks appear to have been uploaded to You Tube, for example). So I took the plunge, and I’m once again glad I did. Having listened to this album three times already, it does not sound to me like a vinyl drop – if it is then it is an extremely good one. Daresay I’ll be returning to this album again and again in the coming months, much like I did when it was originally released.

Long lost classic sounds like a cliche, but let me tell you, if there is one album worthy of such a moniker, then it is 2nd Resurrection.
