Curtis Mayfield - The Impressions feat. Curtis Mayfield - Mini-LP Papersleeve CD Replica
Mini-LP Papersleeve CD Replica
Vintage ’78 was Eddie Kendricks’ first solo effort after he left Motown in the late 1970s and proved that he was still a superb vocalist during this period of his career. This masterpiece of sophisticated soul contains one of his biggest singles: “Ain’t No Smoke Without Fire”, one of the best disco jams The Temptations’ co-founder ever recorded. But what really shines here is Eddie’s finesse with the songs he loved to sing the most: love ballads (“The Best of Strangers Now”, “Maybe I’m a Fool to Love You”, “Your Wish Is My Command”, “Love, Love, Love”). Without a doubt Kendricks shows in this album that he was the best countertenor to come out of Motown and Vintage ’78 gives us a full view of his superb style of singing.
