Item ID: 461399

On the edge of the lightfooted disco movement there was sophisticated funk music and one of the often overlooked protagonists oft he scene was Mr. Sterling Harrison, born in 1941, passed in 2005. His legacy contains two solo albums from the early '80s and this, dear friends of funk music, is his second from 1981. Copies in good shape fetch prices up to 800 dollars so we should give this current reissue on Everland warm welcomes. Is it all worth the enthusiasm? Oh, you can bet it is. Sterling Harrison had left behind the '70s and was ready for the '80s. The sound is up to date, clear, clean and powerful. The music still shows the fire of the earlier funk records but the synthesizer passages, the whole production proves that we are now entering a new age. '80s synthie pop is part of the mix, despite the main ingredients are soul, funk and a bit of disco here and there. The vocals are overwhelming, sung with great emotions and a feeling for the freaky edge of soul. The tunes here come as diverse as they can be, each one with his very own face, but they all have the same spirit courtesy of Sterling Harrison. Originally released in 1980 on Phono.

Also available: ONE SIZE FITS ALL (CD).
