  • Bartley, Chris-Sweetest Thing This Side of Heaven- LP- Stereo-Vando VAS 60,000 - 1967 33 1/3 rpm LP release by NYC Sweet Soul singer, Chris Bartley. , features the '67 R&B hit, "The Sweetest Thing This Side of Heaven". Bartley was a discovery of Van McCoy, who wrote all the songs AND arranged, produced and conducted this album! Bartley's music has in later years found favor with fans of Northern Soul. The following is from the Allmusic website:

    "Bartley scored the first time out with "Sweetest Thing This Side of Heaven," a lilting beauty caressed by Bartley's flowery falsetto. The follow-up, the Motown-ish, formulaic "Baby It's Wonderful," flopped, though it probably sounded like a straight hit in the recording studio booming from those big speakers. He's better on "You Get Next to My Heart," the third single, the lilting "Sittin' Pretty," where he displays a honey soaked false voice, and "Hooked on You," a hard-edged up-tempo number where he sings natural and falsetto. Oozing with love is a remake of the Spellbinders' "For You," one of McCoys' best floaters; the up-tempo "Gotta Tell Somebody (About My Baby)" shows he can jam with the right material. Regardless of the tempo, Bartley's always depicted as a love-struck romantic."

    Track listing: 1 Gotta Tell Somebody 2:44 2 Sittin' Pretty 3:03 3 Baby It's Wonderful 3:14 4 That's How Much I Love You 2:56 5 Hooked on You 2:45 6 I'll Be Loving You 3:11 7 Sweetest Thing This Side of Heaven 3:06 8 Sugar Baby 2:52 9 You Get Next to My Heart 2:41 10 For You 2:59 11 My Baby 3:18 12 Thanks for Loving Me 2:51.

  • Butler, Jerry-Sings Assorted Sounds...- LP- stereo-Mercury SR 61320 - 1971 33 1/3 rpm LP release by Jerry Butler. As the title of the LP suggests, Butler is trying something different on this album. The following is from the Allmusic website:

    "In the early '70s, Jerry Butler founded a songwriting workshop in his native Chicago. Jerry Butler Sings Assorted Sounds... offers some of the tracks from a batch of newer writers and features the brash Chicago production style slightly updated. Compared to his Gamble-Huff efforts, the arrangements here aren't as emotionally fulfilling and the lyrics aren't as apt. Without that high standard, it took a while for Butler to adjust commercially and musically. This effort reflects the adjustment period. The first track, "How Did We Lose It," has a good bassline and an acid guitar solo. On this effort, Butler enlisted the help of a rising new writer and arranger, Donny Hathaway, who arranged three tracks here. The best, the melodic "Special Memory," is warm track that features Hathaway's earthy piano and an animated vocal from Butler. "If It's Real What I Feel," a duet with Brenda Lee Eager, has a playful arrangement and there is plenty of chemistry between the two. The album's last track, "Do You Finally Need a Friend," has a challenging melody and a dramatic arrangement that helps Butler give a multi-layered and nuanced vocal. Jerry Butler Sings Assorted Sounds... is an album of near greatness, but it can't help but pale in comparison to the efforts done with Gamble and Huff."

    Track listing: A1 How Did We Lose It A2 How Does It Feel A3 Special Memory A4 Built My World Around You A5 Going Back To My Baby's Love B1 If It's Real What I Feel B2 Strong Enough To Take It B3 What It Is B4 Why Are You Leaving Me B5 Do You Finally Need A Friend
