Rance Allen - Straight From The Heart 1978 Lp



I remember that I bought this album some years ago for a ballad song called "I belong to you". This song peaked  at #30 on the R&B chart in 1978 and also it was included on the album "Straight from the heart".
The Rance Allen Group is a gospel music group formed in Monroe, Michigan and based in Toledo, Ohio. The Rance Allen Group was formed in the late 60's by vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and songwriter Rance Allen with his brothers Tom Allen and Stephen Allen. They recorded many albums from 1972 until today. They signed to the Stax imprint Gospel Truth and they recorded for the Stax organization throughout the 1970s.



In 1978 they released an album on Stax Records called "Straight from the heart". It was recorded at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley.
The musicians were Gregory Levias on keyboards, Gregory Crockett and David Pruitt on guitars, Romeo Williams on bass, Kenneth Elliott on drums, Robert Zimmitti on percussion. Background vocals by Sharon Hymes, Bonnie Slivier and Selene Stewart. Arranged by Henry Cosby and Benjamin Wright. Produced by Henry Cosby.
I chose two tracks entitled "Security" and "I belong to you".  Enjoy them.
