1969 US Deep Groove Orange Label Stereo Original; Hollywood Pressing. VG++/NM- Vinyl. Small Corner Bump. Small Spots Of Spine Wear. "Jessica Cleaves, Barbara Love, Harry Elston, And Floyd Butler Were The Friends Of Distinction, Southern California Natives Who Sought To Imitate The 5th Dimension's Success. They Shared Similar Lineups -- Two Women, Two Guys, Each Dressed Differently With No Overt Attempts To Coordinate. "Grazing In The Grass" Made Them Known Across America; Lyrics Were Added To Hugh Masekela's Clanging, Cowbell-driven African Tune, And It Sold In Droves, As Radio Stations Played It, People Liked It, And Even Jazz Aficionados Dug It. "Going In Circles" Duplicated "Grazing"'s Success And Has Been Redone By R&b Greats; The Falsetto Lead On The Fade Should Be Time-capsuled. Regardless Of Which Female Leads "I Really Hope You Do," The Sweet, Husky Soprano Will Likely Never Fail To Jump-start Listeners' Hearts; Rca Mistakenly Relegated It To B-side Status. They Take Eddie Floyd's "I Ain't Never Found A Girl" Out Of The Country And Into The City. Lennon And Mccartney's "And I Love Him" Is Given A Soulful, Erotic Reading By One Of The Friends Of Distinction Women. Roy Porter's Somber "Lonesome Mood" Shows A Desire To Do Jazzier Selections."

Highly Distinct
New - LP - LSP 4212
Sealed 1969 Original. Archival Quality Copy. First Sealed Copy We Have Had In Stock. β€œIt Opens With "Impressions," Which Is Not A Song, But Two Minutes Of Harry Elston, Floyd Butler, Jessica Cleaves And Barbara Love β€” The Friends Of Distinction, Tripping. Highly Distinct Is Close To Their Debut Album But Lacked The Obvious Hit; It's More Jazzy And Less R&B. They're Mesmerizing On "We Got A Good Thing Going," Where Their Four-Part Harmonies Riding The Bubbling Arrangement Is Simply Delicious. I've Yet To Hear A Bad Rendition Of Neil Sedaka's Lilting "Working On A Groovy Thing," And The Friends Version, With Their Impeccable Harmonies, Is One Of The Best; It Should Have Made Their Best Of CD. A Harmony-Filled "It's Wonderful" Is Merely A Vehicle To Display Their Amazing Blending Skills, Melody And Lyrics Buried In A Sea Of Harmony. The Doors' Rocker "Light My Fire" Works Well All Jazzed Up; It Seems Like A Live Recording But Could Have Been Manufactured In The Studio. Nothing Is Blatantly Commercial, And The Uplifting "Let Yourself Go" Stirred Some Chart Action But Strayed Too Far From Mainstream To Seriously Compete.” – Andrew Hamilton, All Music Guide more
