Fantastic 4 tracker. An absolute classic. The gem here, for me, is 'The Question'... Uplifting, spiritual house. But, hey, the other 3 are awesome... 'Grand Jazz' is as good as Soho's 'Hot Music' any day. T.P. does get a bit carried away with his ... See full review

A1. Marvin Gaye's 'Sexual Healing' accapella over Chi-Sound Orchestra's 'Windy City' is pretty effective.

What is it about this LP that makes it so different to 'What's Going On' or 'Innervisions' or 'Talking Book'... Eddie Kendricks, the greatest Motown misfit, just goes as far as you can... Poor ol' Berry Gordy! When it comes to Greatest LP of all time, ... See full review

Having hooked onto this LP in the mid 80's, when Motown was looking for a more commercial output... Maybe, when Smokey was more bankable through 'Being with you' etc... What an amazing LP, a kind of 'concept' project. His smooth falsetto fits the mood so ... See full review

Oh! my GOD... You got everyone on this LP... I think that this was gonna be Leroy's ascension to maybe Curtis, Donny, Marvin like status... But, it's how you like it for us soul boys... This should have been a smash... It remains the LP... It had ... See full review

I think that for us Europeans... Don't be put off by the price of this LP... A masterclass of 70's S.O.U.L. Maybe, not as expansive as 'Hutson 2'... But, my goodness, as a soul fan... 'All because of you', a masterful version of Maurice Jackson's 'Lucky ... See full review

If it's 'you can win' that you want, then 'Bileo / Jackie Cole & Hot Platnium Fantasy ‎– You Can Win / I'v Got A Trouble Man' is what you need... Reasonable price, faithful re-production... I guess you takes your choice...

For me, I think that 'Love is the message' is the ultimate cool down track... You've been taken higher and higher... Then this drops... A time to re-connect with all that's happening! Larry, Frankie, Ron Hardy would use this as a bridging point, bring ... See full review

I think you have to understand the history of this track... Read downtown.music's review... If you had been a part of the scene that embraced 'New York City' all would become clear... 'Free your mind and your ass will follow'. Peace.
