Look Me Up - Blue Magic


Recommended Posts

Posted

Don't know how many of you will agree but I think this record still sounds brilliant today, probably not worth much as it was a big hit back in the 70's. I love Ted Mills vocals, just one of those singers who stand out and made some wonderful songs with Blue Magic, "Let Me Be The One" "Whats Come Over Me" (feat.Margie Joseph) :unsure:

Luvvly record ! It's on my random plays on the computer in the form of a longer Tom Moulton mix. Always rather liked their "You And Me Got A Good Thing Going" with Margie Joseph (the other side of 'Whats Come Over Me')

Well, that's spooky :( I was playing both 'You and Me got a good thing' and 'Look me up' last night (cue Twilight Zone music)......... :thumbsup: They are both outstanding records and Blue Magic did so much good stuff that should get an airing........Jo

Try "Never Get Over You" - a great Norman Harris arrangement or the Bobby Eli stormer Love Has Found Its Way To Me - both off the The Magic Of The Blue album - very under-rated group - but those Philly productions sound fantastic now in comparison to stuff being produced these days.

They did record into the 80's - checkout their From Out Of The Blue album from 1988 - got some very nice ballads on there.

Best wishes

Seconded- Love Has Found It's Way" is great. These records smack of luxury and expense I suppose cos they were expensive!
