One of my faves from one of my favourite artists!

A totally incredible record I plug at every opportunity.

Magnificent lyrics, superbly performed.

Just sit back and marvel at the mastery!

But if you're looking for Mellow, this should do the business.

And I'm still blown away, after many long years, by this beautifully soulful masterpiece.

Bloody hell... I need another drink!

Thanks Roger & Bri.

Great thread!

Some great contributions from Bri and Sean, I love em all, and like Sean says, the guy had the lot, but this is the Daddy for me, one of those solitary listening only records IMHO, i posted another track from the "Ode To My Lady" set in refro but won,t load up, its another beauty in the same vein "Since I Found You", if anyone has the technical ability, please post it up, see y,all at Just Soul on the 2nd :thumbsup:

He was such a great artist. His Motown LP Havin A House Party was a great set released in the middle of the disco dark years.

This is another great track from the LP and I think was his last Motown single release.

Willie Hutch I bought the Mack sound track blind in the 70's which was closely followed by Fully Exposed and i was blown away by both,there are so many wonderful tracks that it is hard to single one out,his motown catalogue is terrific on its own but here is a favourite done for Norman Whitfields label on a hard to find uk 7"

and a lesser known (and expensive) one he arranged and produced and written by his brother (Richard) from 1977 ... not seen anything else from this group so guessing it's their only release .. unless of course anyone can shed more light?

... and surprised to discover that he also wrote Steve Flanagan's - I Need To Be Loved So Bad (far superior flipside to (the 'awful' C&W/popcorn) I've Arrived on Era). Is this the same SF who was later a member of Creative Source?

... You're right as it's on flip to 'Everybody Needs Money' issues only ... most available seem to be same-sided promos without this side.  It's the best track on the disappointing 'Midnight Dancer' album from 79 consisting of mainly 'disco' tracks ... he moved back to Motown after this LP and didn't release another album until 85 but in the interim had his first UK hit (#51) (of only 2) with 'In And Out' 45/12'' only (12'' had Brothers Gonna Work It Out' on flip whilst 45 had The Girl (Can't Help It)). His only other UK charting single (#73) was Keep On Jammin' in 1985.  Unfortunately his career seemed to fade after this releasing 2 albums in 90s and one in 2002 none of which (for me) came anywhere near the quality of his 70s output.

I've never heard this.  Thanks for posting.  I 100% agree with you that after the 70's his output was not same.  For me I guess it's the more modern sound of the music from 80 on, as it just not even come close to what we heard from him for the most part.

.... yeah hard to choose from his Motown 70s albums ... but my top 3 (with top tracks):

1975 - Ode To My Lady: Since I Found You Everything's Alright / The Way We Were / Talk To Me  / Just Another Day

1977 - Havin' A House Party: After Love Is Gone / I Never Had It So Good / Soul Strut / Train Of Love / What You Gonna Do After The Party

1978 - In Tune: Paradise / Anything Is Possible If You Believe In Love / Easy Does It

... but of course many other tracks from his other albums  ... perhaps Motown neglected to promote his material owing to his writing/production duties? ...as for me he is up there with Gaye/Mayfield/Hutson/Hathaway ... but he doesn't seem to get as much recognition as his work deserves!

Here's one possibly(?) not that well known that he wrote for Marvin Gaye for his unreleased 1972 LP I'm Your Man (released posthumously in 2019)

'I'm Gonna Give You Respect' - Willie also recorded it and it was released on Expansion compilation (only?) 'Try It You'll Like It' in 2003.  It also features on G.C. Cameron's debut solo LP Love, Songs & Other Tragedies (with  a few other Hutch penned songs) in 1974 (with Marvin & Willie on backing vocals)

.. and from The Mack LP 1973 the 'anthemic' I Choose You ... timeless pure quality.  Covered by Chicago Gangsters on Red Coach/Gold Plate (also an epic 9:20 version on Blind Over You LP on Gold Plate) which I was going to post but for me Willie's version is the definitive version that cannot be touched!

From the same 1982 album (On My Way) as 'Keep The Fire Burning' is 'Doin' It' which only got a single release (7" & 12") in UK ... but a rarer version is by Chuck Strong on Invasion

From the Midnight Dancer album:

Kelly Green and Never let you be without love, are for me among his best work.
