***

Although he began his career as a funky organist, very much in the Charles Earland tradition, by this album Caesar had refashioned himself as a soul artist -- with a surprising degree of success! The record features the overall move to up-tempo soul and club sounds that the Westbound label was taking at the time, and it features arrangements by Mike Theodore and David Van De Pitte, plus mixing by Tom Moulton.

Buenisimo album de Caesar Frazier, en el que destaco el increible corte de aires ultrasoulful (termino que acabo de inventar) "Another Life". Ademas, "Till Another Day" me sigue pareciendo de lo mejorcito que he escuchado en meses, sino años. El Side B de este album me parece simplemente magistral: tanto "Till Another Day", como "I Got To Have Your Love" y "Just A Little Bit Longer" son piezas de sofistisoul de una elegancia que todabia sorprenden. Escuchen con atencion este poco conocido album y vayamoslo comentandolo en la zona de comentarios! Recomendadisimo.
