East Coast Offering - Don't take your love away 1984

Tim Eyermann was a saxophonist and for many years was the led of the jazz fusion band called East Coast Offering from Washington.
He was born in Philadelphia. Tim started studying piano at the age of six and continued until he was eleven. At the age of 14 his godmother bought an album by saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. Also his great-uncle was sax player in Downey, California. For this reason he decided to study saxophone.
He graduated with a B.S. in Music from Duquesne University, he also completed his Master's degree from the Peabody Conservatory in woodwinds. He worked with Count Basie, Maynard Ferguson, Julie Andrews, The Spinners and Anita Baker. In 1974, he formed a band the East Coast Offering.
Tim Eyermann appeared at local clubs for years, toured the East Coast with his group, made about 10 albums and was nominated for two Grammy Awards, but he never made any success.
In 1984 Tim released a self-titled album with his group on MCA Records. Tim has had three previous albums to his credit.
It was recorded at Bias Studios, Springfield. Produced by Tim Eyermann and E.C.O.
I have chosen a masterpiece entitled "Don't take your love away". It was written by Isaac Hayes and Lee Hatim. Original recording by Isaac Hayes in 1977. 

This song was released also as a 7 incher and 12 incher.

Tim Eyermann died on May 1, 2007 at the age 60.

Note: The above posted track is not played in full



One of my favorite songs and my favorite cover of the song, too.
I listen to it feeling the same thrill that I was feelin' back then, when I first heard the whole album.
It's a fine way to begin the New Year!!!
I wish you a Soulful 2011, with the very best of everything good!!!
