The 1977 FIRST LABEL of this highly sought-after 70's groove, which was re-promoted from the same Brooklyn, New York address 3 years later, both releases are incredibly elusive.

A 45 that gives up not one, but two special grooves...

"The Sun Shines (Every Time You Say You're Mine)" gives up a rich production and uplifting arrangement by the two Alvin's (Green & Stewart) lifted by insistent shrill songbird choruses elevating Alvin's unusually soulful but hoarse vocal, harnessing a wave of vibe peppered strings, immediately alerting your attention to this jubilant dancer, then soaring horns join this inspirational session, lifting it even higher. A fabulous 70's soulful dancer with the added bonus of a sublime flipside cruiser.

"Turning On And Tuning In " Alvin provides an astonishing on-his-knees chilled performance, again employing a sultry girl-group, to enrich a glorious "Lowrider" journey into sweet-soul heaven. We were not sure which side to lead with, both cuts have lifted my day...

Two solid top-drawer soulful 70's sides. So seldom seen for sale...
