Crack of Dawn from Canada released two Soul albums in the late 70’s and early 80’s. They return after 36 years with a new strong contemporary Soul album with an old school feel, check their more up tempo version of Mel & Tim’s ‘Keep the Faith’, but this is no one tracker.
There are some strong reissues this week. The brilliant O.T. Sykes album and the Van Jones are now available on CD. On Vinyl there are two wonderful Impulse Pharoah Sanders albums which are likely to be in limited supply. The two superb Eddie Russ Jazz-Funk albums are released on vinyl on our Soul Brother records label, they are also available on a great value 2 albums on 1 CD.
Andy Smith has compiled a good Disco and Boogie comp ‘Presents Disco Wonderful’ out now on CD.
It is also a great week for 45’s with four strong titles on Soul Brother and Expansion. Almeta Lattimore ‘These Memories’ is an unbelievably good 70’s Modern Soul dancer. Linda Clifford has two Leroy Hutson produced sides from ’73 Bobbi Humphrey’ Baby Don’t you know’ from Roy Ayers productions and Keni Burke classic ‘Risin to the Top’ has a welcome reissue.
