Jay King was a driving force behind 80’s new jack swing acts Timex Social Club and Club Nouveau and ‘Helen’s Son’ – a tribute to his late mother Helen Bridges – sees King take centre stage on an album choc full of mellow soul gems and well crafted ballads. His tender tenor caresses the throwback , early 80’s mid tempo dancer ‘Good Kinda Lovin’ while the smooth, jazzy ‘Take My Breath Away’, the silky ‘Runnin’ and the slow burner ‘Let me Relax Your Mind’ are also highlights. The uptempo ‘The One’ is a funky, retro groover but don’t overlook the ethereal ‘Trying to Get You Back with some lovely washes of sound or the lovely ‘All About Your Love’ – another polished stepper. Good, smooth, sophisticated soul album.
