Take It To The Limit
Used - LP - AL 9534
Pretty Rare 1980 Original In Custom Inner Sleeve And Gold Promo Stamp On Back Jacket. CC.“Drummer And Stellar Lineup Assembler Norman Connors Landed On Arista For Take It To The Limit, An Album That Continued The Man's Embrace Of Smooth R&B And Gradual Abandonment Of Jazz. The Roster Here Is Extremely Lengthy; Not Only Is There A Group Numbering At About A Dozen That's Dubbed The Starship Orchestra, But There's Well Over 30 Other (!) Guests Who Pop In And Out Of The Mix In Various Capacities. Both The Title Track (Featuring Adaritha On Vocals) And "Melancholy Fire" (Glenn Jones) Rightfully Cracked The Top 30 Of The Black Singles Chart, But A Small Clutch Of Other Gems Deserved Similar Achievements. "I Don't Need Nobody Else," Sung By Al Johnson (Arranger And Conductor Of Half The Album's Cuts), Sparkles Brightly, While Adaritha's "Justify" Is Just As Gorgeous As The Album's Hit Singles. One Minor Disappointment Is Leon Ware's Set-Closing "Everywhere Inside Of Me," Which Falls Toward The Sappy Side. One Major Dud Is A Plonking Cover Of Steely Dan's "Black Cow," Which Has Inexplicably Shown Up On A Number Of Connors Anthologies. Six Out Of Eight Ain't Bad By Any Stretch.” – Andy Kellman, All Music Guide more

New - LP - AB 4177

This Is Your Life
New - LP - AB 4177
Sealed 1977 Original. Features The Starship Orchestra, Jean Carn, James Robinson And Eleanor Mills. Archival Quality Copy. "The Follow-up To The Successful Romantic Journey, This Is Your Life Was Connors' First Album For Arista And Found Him Doing The Same Great, Intelligent Music That Had Placed Him At The Top Of The List Of True Jazz/r&b Innovators. His Self-production Debut, The Record Was Done In The Same Style Of His High-selling Late-'70s Efforts. Although Connors Was Highly Regarded As A Sideman With Pharoah Sanders, Among Others, Jazz/r&b Was Definitely His Metier. The Title Track Is A Delicate Rendering Of A Contemplative Jimmy Webb Tune, Powered By An Emotional Vocal From Eleanor Mills. As A Producer, Connors Was Unabashed About His R&b Skills And The Execution Comes Across More Confident And Defined. The Melodic "Say You Love Me" Has Connors Stepping Out On Lead Vocals; Unlike Many Other Jazz Artists Turned Singers, Connors' Lack Of Great Pipes Provided A Good Juxtaposition To Flawless Backing Track (Having Jean Carn On Backing Vocals Didn't Hurt Either). This Is Your Life, More Than Any Of His Albums Of The Time, Skillfully Balanced His R&b And Jazz Offerings. The Cover Of Herbie Hancock's "Butterfly" Has A Phenomenal And Dramatic Arrangement With Vocals From Mills And James Robinson. The Last Track, "The Creator," Doesn't Fare Half As Well But It's Not Enough To Dim The Virtues Of This Effort. This Is Your Life Is Not Only One Of Connors' Strongest, But Also One Of The Genre's Best." Jason Elias, AMG. more
