Indestructible Levi Stubbs and the Tops.
on 8 February 2014
Massive fan of Levi Stubbs and his Tops, especially the 60's and 70's tunes, but was never too keen on 80's music due to the synthesizer and electronic sounds coming out through that decade towards the end mainly.
As this was made around that time, I had my doubts, but knew Levi Stubbs voice would break through all that, and boy did he prove me right!
I have never ever heard a voice like his before and it just seemed to get better with age, they are all in their 50's at the time of this album, his range is unbelievable and just soars and booms over the 80's electronic backing of these tracks. He duets perfectly with Aretha and never over powers her on one of the tracks, and with some top producers of the decade working with them, there isn't a bad song.
It's all here, slow ballads and some catchy dance tunes that really show Levi Stubbs can sing anything, even in his 50's, backed up by his Tops as always.
