James Vincent - How Can I Thank You Enough 1978



James Vincent is a guitarist from Chicago. He has never been content to be a student of one style music.
In 1978 he recorded and released a single entitled “How Can I Thank You Enough” on Caribou Records. It was distributed by CBS Records. It was also included on his album entitled "Waiting for the rain". However the single is a bit different from the LP track. Composed and produced by himself.





While the music was still very much R&B jazz fusion the lyrics boldly reflected his newfound Christian conversion while staying in Hawaii. It shipped world wide because of Space Traveler's success and he received hundreds of letters in support of this record, which had crossed over with a message in secular music that was unprecedented.

James Ingram & Garland Green


In 1980 Lamont Dozier formed the soul group Zingara. Lamont found a trio of singers James Ingram, Lady Bianca and Wali Ali. Lamont Dozier said: "My wife Barbara knew singer James Ingram. James was very well known around Los Angeles for singing on everyone's demos”. Before I knew what had happened, one of the songs, "Love's calling" had turned into this huge cult radio hit and people were jumping up and down looking for the guy behind the record. “I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever written and produced,” affirms Lamont.



At the time, Geffen Records called and wanted to sign the album - and the group, too. “But I was already kinda involved with the people at Wheel Records, so I stuck with them. Maybe I took the wrong option” said Lamont. Zingara released an album in 1981 on Wheel records.






In 1979, Green decided that he needed a fresh start. So he made the move from Chicago to Los Angeles. Garland Green explained “My reason for leaving was not the record business, but I just wanted to change the environment.
He struggled to find a label for six years (after RCA album) and finally, in 1983, got a contract with Ocean-Front Records. Tyrone Davis was recording for the label at the time. Green recorded under the production of Arleen Schesel (Schesel and Green made a love connection and got married). However Lamont Dozier gave him creative help (as arranger) and he brought his songs to the table, including “Trying to hold on”, a remake of Dozier’s hit from a decade earlier. The record lasted ten weeks on Billboard’s national R&B chart, going to the #67 position. Flip side was another Dozier song from Zingara entitled “Love’s calling”.



With the success of the single, Ocean-Front released an Lp on Green, simply called “Garland Green”. Unfortunately, the label poorly marketed their artist by giving it slapdash cheap-looking packaging.







Which one you think is better? Please tell me your opinion.

Willis Jackson - Sideshow 1975



Willis Jackson born on April 25, 1932 Miami, Florida and he died on October 25, 1987 New York. From his late teenage, Willis ‘Gator’ Jackson played tenor saxophone in many bands in his home state before attending university where he studied music theory. From the late 40s into the mid-50s he played in various editions of the small band led by Cootie Williams. Overlapping this spell with Williams, Jackson led his own band on tours and for recording sessions. He also recorded with his then-wife, Ruth Brown. Although Jackson’s playing and composing up to this time had been strongly inclined towards R&B, he also played with bop musicians including founding fathers Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. From the early 60s he was active on the east coast, continuing to record and in the late 70s led a tenor-organ combo featuring Carl Wilson (organ), and Pat Martino (guitar).
In 1975 he recorded one of my favorite jazz albums entitled "The way we were". It was recorded at Sigma Sound Studio, Philadelphia and was released on Atlantic Recording Corporation. Produced by Phil Hurtt and Tony Bell. All male vocals and vocal arrangements by Phil Hurtt. Strings by Don Renaldo & His Philadelphia Strings.



I have chosen a brilliant "Sideshow", big success one year ago by Blue Magic.



Note: The above posted track is not played in full


Although best known for his raunchy, blues-based sound, Jackson was also an effective balladeer, even developing a special saxophone for this purpose.

Peabo Bryson - Why don't you make up your mind 1981



Such is the case with PEABO BRYSON. Around 1981, Capitol Records asked executive producer Johnny Pate to shift through tapes of material which PEABO had recorded several years ago, but had never been released . Johnny found so many exceptional songs, we had a difficult time choosing those to appear on this album but after much deliberation, ten gems were finally selected. One of them is the exceptional “Why don’t you make up your mind”. Composed by himself. Produced by himself.



This album is not rare and is not expensive. But this track is one of my favorite. Also I would like to thank Nicolas Drosos who brought this great track to my attention several years ago. Afterwards I bought this album.
