Format: Audio CD
This album has been whispered about for many years on various soul forums/sites.A vinyl original copy can demand a considerable ammount of money.Well this new re-issue has been digitally re-mastered and not before time!
Raved about by other reviewers (BBC) and rightly so. This simple recording made by Bond should have been a musical milestone but sadly it passed most record buyers by as it was badly marketed because Stax records really where confused by the material. The 36 page booklet included is an interesting account of the albums creation and the subsequeant dissappearance and relocation of Bond as he faded into a life of drink,drugs and drifting around the USA.The booklet states if Bond had been white the album would have sold which at the time would have probably been true.With regard to the music you could describe it as acoustic soul that might have influenced the likes of India Arie if she had been born over thirty years ago. Obvious parallels are somewhere between Gil Scott Heron and Issac Hayes.Bond refused to blinker his musical tastes with any specific genre and he was equally influencd by rock,country and western music in his youth, aswell as more traditional gospel music.
There is a slightly melancholic beauty to these bitter sweet songs which is uniquely poignant,reflecting in many ways the sad and lonely upbringing that Bond endured.Knowing that this record has waited all this time to be re-discovered makes it exceptional. Bond's delivery may not always be word perfect and he may sometimes drift a little out of key (he has a speech impediment)but in the same way these traits make Bob Dylan's music remarkable this applies to Bond's voice.Seven tracks of beauty offers far more value than many CDs on offer today.

I bought this album after hearing Come On Snob on (Everything But The Girl's) Ben Watt's Six Mix show. It is one of the best soul albums I've ever bought. It's on my shelf between Marvin Gaye's What's Going On and Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key Of Life. My only regret is I didn't buy it in the 1970's. Every song is a gem. Highly recommended if you like Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield etc

This really is a lost classic being way too ahead of its time though it does have a lot in comman with marvin gaye and isaac hayes it also has influences of nick drake and other folk etc beautiful orchestral arrangements and something to say as well it also reminds me of winter in america by gil scott heron for its raw emotion. In short get it and discover a gem.

I came upon this cd through reviews in portuguese newspapers - what a find! I've placed it among my Curtis, Marvin Gaye and Isaac Hayes alltime soul classics.
