Toussaint, Alan - Life, Love And Faith Life, Love And Faith
Soul New - LP MS 2062 Reprise
Sealed 1972 White Label Promo With Promo Insert Sealed Under The Rear Shrink. Cut Corner. Label Scan Is Of An Open White Label Promo We Had In Stock Ten Years Ago! “His First Album For The Warner Stable. Toussaint Seized The Opportunity As A Way To Stretch Out His Sound, Refining It And Expanding It So It Was Grounded In New Orleans R&B But Also Encompassed Hard Funk And Smooth Soul. Though It Was A Soul Album Through And Through, It Also Had The Feeling Of Being Part Of Reprise's Considerable Singer/Songwriter Stable — Such Artists As Randy Newman, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, And Joni Mitchell — And If Anything, Life, Love And Faith Feels More Of A Piece With This Group Than It Does With Most Music Coming Out Of New Orleans In The Early '70s Because It Also Captures An Eccentric Genius Pursuing His Idiosyncratic Vision. Here, It Seems As If Toussaint Has Found Every Permutation Of His Signature Sound, Which Is Pretty Much The Sound Of New Orleans R&B. He Revives The Classic, Easy-Rolling Groove On "Soul Sister"; Turns It Seriously, Deeply Funky On "Goin' Down" And "Victims Of The Darkness"; Gets Trippy On "Out Of The City (Into Country Life)"; Treads Nimbly With A Philly Soul Variation On "She Once Belonged To Me"; And Crafts A Tremendous, Dramatic Ballad With "On Your Way Down," One Of The Finest Songs He Ever Wrote. It's A Textured, Multi-Layered Record That May Not Be The Purest Dose Of Toussaint, But Is The One Album That Truly Exhibits How Deep And Wide His Talents Ran.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
