Soul Used - LP M7 921R1 Motown
1979 Compilation, Still In Shrink. “(Outside Of The Hit Title Track) This Album Is A Real Treasure. There Are Superb Novelties From The Day, Including A Remix Of "Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)" — Ross' First "Solo" Hit From 1970 — Along With A Re-Edit And Remix Of Gaye's "God Is Love" From His What's Going On 1971 Masterpiece. These Are Remixes From A Time Before Such Things Would Truly Catch On, From An Era Before Cds Would Make Them Mandatory. Tata Vega's "Come In Heaven (Earth Is Calling)" Is Considered A Classic With Unrequited Chart Results, And It Certainly Holds Up To The Underground "Buzz" It Maintains Decades After Being Recorded. Other Gems Include Robinson's Stunning "Mother's Son," The Commodores' "This Is Your Life," And A Truly Exceptional Duet Between Ross And Gaye On Leonard Caston And Terry Mcfaddin's "I'll Keep My Light In My Window." This Was The Day When Rod Stewart Topped The Chart By Asking "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?" And Chic Were Immersed In "La Freak." Stevie Wonder And Gladys Knight Hit Number One Six Years Later With "That's What Friends Are For" — A Then-Obscure Rod Stewart Performance From The 1982 Soundtrack To The Film Night Shift. The Remake Became A Much-Covered Monster Hit And Is Exactly The Kind Of Nugget Motown Should Have Sought Out For Such A Special Project. Had The Powers That Be Only Searched For And Found A Truly Wonderful Song To Remember Berry Gordy Sr. With Instead Of The Las Vegas Opening Act Throwaway Tune Title Track, This Underappreciated Album Would Have A Much More Stellar Place In History.” – Joe Viglione, All Music Guide... more details
