A fantastic bit of soul and house that was woefully overlooked at the time of its release — and one of our favorite albums of the past 25 years! The Blaze production team had been hitting the underground club scene hard for a few years with their raw New Jersey house singles — then Motown grabbed them in the studio, and had them cut this classic album of soul tracks that pays homage to a set of greats that runs from Leroy Hutson, to Donnie Hathaway, to Norman Harris, and a host of others — all with a sense of soulfulness and depth that goes way past their standard work for the clubs! The dancefloor tracks are great, but the album’s also got some wonderfully mellow moments too — with tracks that include “So Special”, “We All Must Live Together”, “Missing You”, and “Get Up”. This record version has the added bonus of being a bit of a “mini-opera” — with spoken bits that have a narrative quality, linking the tracks together in a way that didn’t occur with the LP.
