Bristol, Johnny - Feeling The Magic Feeling The Magic
Soul New - LP M3G 4983 MGM
Sealed 1975 Original. Saw Cut, Bottom Right Rubbed Corner. “After Establishing Himself As A Considerable Multi-Talented Figure At Motown During The Label's Detroit Heyday, Johnny Bristol Went Solo, Cutting Several Long-Players Beginning In The Mid-'70s. His Second, Feeling The Magic (1975), Is Much In Keeping With His Debut, Hang On In There Baby (1974), If Not In Some Ways Arguably Stronger. Veteran Motown Arranger Paul Riser Sets A Perfect Balance Of Solid, Swinging Uptempo Grooves And Sultry Intimate Ballads. The Opener, "Leave My World," Rocks Steadily Behind An Airy Memphis-Style Soul Shuffle. He Also Utilizes One Of His Trademark Vocal Overdubs, Giving The Listener The Impression Of Two Vocalists As His Double-Tracked Voice Sounds As If There Are Alternating Performers, Especially When Singing Harmonies. "Morganton, North Carolina" Is An Edgy Reminiscence Of The Hard Times And Experiences That Shaped Bristol During The Days In His Hometown. The Horn And String Sections Lay Down Tasty Philly Soul Fills Over The Top Of The Otherwise Driving Backbeat. Pulling Off A Great Barry White-Inspired Vibe, "Love Takes Tears" Weaves A Soaring Hypnotic Melody Not Unlike The One Incorporated Into The Title Track From Hang On In There Baby, Which Was Itself A Huge Crossover Hit -- Although When "Love Takes Tears" Was Issued On A 45 B/W "Go On And Dream," It Failed To Enter The Pop Charts And Stalled At 72 On The R&B Countdown. "Feeling The Magic" Is A Full-Bodied Knockout That Could Have Doubled For Al Green Under The Spell Of Thom Bell. Particularly Notable Is Guitarist Melvin "Wah Wah" Ragin's Emphatic Fretwork, Which Adds An Effervescent Luster To The Already Vivacious Score.” – Lindsay Planer, All Music Guide... more details
