Formula V - Phase 1 1977



This album was recorded on 20th Century Records in 1977. In this Lp, Formula V were Richard Cason on keyboards & vocals, Leon Kittrell on drums & vocals, Billy Ray Charles on lead guitar & vocals, Earl J. Espy on bass & vocals and Alfreda James on vocals. Horn & String Arrangements by H.B.Barnum & Charles Richard Cason. Produced by Pete Peterson & Charles Richard Cason. I chose a wonderful track entitled "We've got such a good love" duet Richard Cason with Alfreda James.




Charles Richard Cason is best known for his Rich Cason Orchestra of the early '80s and for his contributions to electro-funk and West Coast hip-hop; it was Cason who wrote the music for Captain Rapp's sociopolitical 1983 cult classic "Bad Times (I Can't Stand It)."
