James, Jimmy / Vagabonds - You Don't Stand A Chance If You Don't Dance You Don't Stand A Chance If You Don't Dance
Soul New - LP 12111 PYE
Sealed 1975 Original With Custom Sticker Under Shrink. CC. “Teaming Up With Disco Producer Biddu Brought Jimmy James & The Vagabonds A Dramatic Update In Sound During Their Mid-'70s Re-Emergence. Although James Is Still Well In Possession Of His Undeniably Warm Voice And Still Master Of The Bright Brass Punches That Informed His '60s-Era Material, 1975's You Don't Stand A Chance If You Can't Dance LP Is A Strobe-Lit Night To The Smooth Daylight Sonics Of 1966's The New Religion. From The James Brown Patter Than Drives The Title Track, Here Split Into Two Parts To Open And Close The Album (And, Oddly, Also Cross-Marketed On Biddu's Own 1975 Effort, Blue Eyed Soul), To The Funk Fury Of "Let's Have Fun," It's Obvious That James Has Been Completely Revitalized. James' Style Also Proves To Be A Perfect Match For Biddu's Lushly Styled Arrangements — A Collusion That Is Absolutely Perfect On The Rootsy Blues Guitar And String-Laden "Come Lay Some Lovin' On Me." Elsewhere, The Smooth Ballads "Suspicious Love" And "I Know You Don't Love Me But You Got Me Anyway" Allow James To Flex His Classic Smooth Soul Delivery. Another Track, The Somewhat Forgettable "I Am Somebody," Even Managed To Crack The U.S. Top 100 In 1976, Although James' Own Adopted Country Cold-Shouldered Him Out Of Its Charts Completely. There's Often Some Trepidation Surrounding The Return Of Veteran Performers As They Cross From One Genre To Another — Returning To The Spotlight After The Musical Climate Has Evolved. And It's Probably True That James' Die-Hard '60s-Era Fans Weren't Necessarily Thrilled With The Sonic Shift. However, What James Accomplished In Terms Of Breadth And Depth Is Fantastic.” – Amy Hanson, All Music Guide... more details
