ben e king-street tough-1981-atlantic full album-smooth early 80s soul

BEN E KING 
street tough-1981-atlantic-USA-Stereo-SD19300-LPCD


   
listen to - 'why is the question' 
Here is the entire LP which in my regard, is a lost classic, the single
from the LP same as title as the album is well known but this WHOLE
album is a great listen end to end and is one of my personal favourites
of the genre and was a total surprise to hear when I found this sometime
in the early 90s.

There is a mixed bag of writers here including Willie Hutch, Van McCoy,
Ben E King, Joe Cobb, Janet Alhanti and Barrie Palmer.

Most songs are in the key of relationships of Man and Woman
in a very loving manner with yearning of continuity and progression.

The sound is very refined  and it's got what I gather from the dynamics to
being the highest quality sound of an analogue system merging with
new studio tech of the new decade (1980s) and really no gimmicks
plague this album at all. The synth sounds are PERFECT quiet storm
type sounds, the rock guitar, when it shows up is nicely blended and
not wanker riffs, Bass guitar is sooo damn funky with that street
tough sound that was soon to be utilized by Hip Hop. The drums
are all real with a great crack of the woody snare and some angelic
soul vocals grace this album over top of Ben's mature and defined
sexy voice.

I call this a lost classic because I have never heard anyone talk about the LP
in any terms and other die hard soul collectors I know have never seen or heard
it.

I wanted to share this back in 2007 as one of my first posts but it got lost in the shuffle.

Here's to another year - 2012  merging soon - peace to all in 2013 !!!!
