I know what your thinking: "This isn't vinyl !" and your right, but when a cd comes out as special as this one, then it needs to be out there, chances are it was on vinyl as well but I brought the cd. All the tracks are aranged and produced by Riley Hampton & Sonny Sanders and for the Chi-City Label in the 70's/early 80's.
The big stepper track is It's Cool (see pic) released on June 16th. 1983 and 3 days later Jackson died from a stroke. The other great and to my mind better track was Tell Me When It Hurts is better, do you agree? Come on now people let's start talking. His version and hit with Maurice Albert's Feelings is also included along with fine ballads; Magic Man, Aretha's: Got To Find An Angel (medium pace tempo with great sax break) & Love Goes Out Of The Loving, I can go on... Northern Soul fans will enjoy If I Had My Way and Open Up Your Heart that 'stops & starts' moving I really missed it when the cd came out and now love to death.
