Description

Extremely RARE 1973 Newark, New Jersey vocal-group Soul fully firing on two fronts.

We lead with the soaring harmony Soulful dancer "Too Young", an impressively tight knit, from this under-the-street lamp gathering, brilliant guided by composer Fred White.

It feels like the group and Fred grew up, listening to Manhattans on the streets of Newark, their seamless vocal-volleyball so reminiscent of the areas premier Soul boys. Falsetto lead rises to bank of zipping strong, soon to switch lead, then the teen falsetto bounces back into the flow. Swirling strings fill the air, but still the major force are those unified vocals... that suddenly fade away to leave you thinking "Oh No" they've gone.. but then they reignite themselves for a much appreciate encore! Wow what a tune.. and a very rare tune that seldom surfaces for sale. After 3 listen I'm in love with it's youthful optimism, glorious production and searing vocals.. A WINNER!!

Flip it over, the group drill down into a glorious Sweet Soul ballad that's surely going to alert all vocal group ballad fans. As again, these Brick City Soul-boys blend themselves into a string and considerate brass landscape. Premium grade Sweet Soul fills your space. Two great sides...

One of the seriously rare vocal-group double-helpings of harmony Soul, that has eluded most collectors, coupled with a killer rare-soul-dance that has given the slip to many dedicated European Soul DJ's, also.

Condition Report

Two clean but lightly age-browned labels, vinyl on the a-side has light surface marks but plays crisp and clean, only an occasional low tick or two. The quieter ballad flipside#, has a few clicks on the intro that get overwhelmed once the singing starts.
