Format: LP, Vinyl
The Topics ‘Giving Up’ is an almost impossible to find the original super rare mid 70’s harmony Soul LP issued on the NY TSG label.’Giving Up’ is a great version of the Donny Hathaway song with strings and horns and superb male harmony vocals, taken at a slightly faster tempo than Donny’s take on this great song. ‘God And You’ is a lovely mid tempo floater/stepper with both male and female vocals. ‘At Last It’s Over’ and ‘Moving Down The Line’ are good upper mid tempo Philly-esq shufflers whilst ‘You’ve Got The Power’ is a semi funky soul groove. There are also three nice string laden beat ballads ‘Got To Get You Back’, ‘Please Take The Love’ and ‘All Good Things Can’t Last’ . Overall a strong lesser known harmony soul album thankfully reissued on vinyl by P-Vine in Japan, available in limited quantities.
