about

You are probably aware that I LOVE, no, more like ADORE the 1980s soul scene and not a week goes by where I like to bask in it's warmness and soak up all the grooves, finesse, class and uniqueness that decade had to offer. Warming it is too that many artists - mostly outside of the US - are returning to that classic era to create new soulful grooves with a beat, a melody and plenty of get-up-and-go.

No surprises then that this CD, very much in an 80s fashion, is one that I can wholeheartedly recommend to you. If the uptempo dance sounds a la Kashif, Paul Laurence etc of say 1983 - 1985 is up your street then this new album is right up your street!

I recommend every single track from "Toe Jammin'" - or more apt a title should be 'Feet Movin'" - through the serious jam of "80s Babies" - a cut to make the most ardent of groovers grin like a loon - and ethereal numbers such as "Just Feel It" I cannot fail to be impressed. This cut really is strong and I can imagine this as an instrumental flip side to a tune that Evelyn King would have laid down on RCA in the early 80s. THAT synth is there...all ingredients to make this old fart smile and get watery eyed are all there. There is a semi-vocal cut though that I cannot stop playing..."It's Yours" could easily be an unissued cut from 1985 / 1986 - think Projection "Luv Struck" and that glorious era...I am totally sold out on this album and I know that when exposed in all the right places it's going to do very well indeed.
