“Beautiful Vida” will underline what I have just said. The funky J.B. type groove is sensational and is one you can genuinely FEEL. Like James Brown, Glen is an exponent and minister of truth. A heady statement, but I feel it’s true nonetheless. The late 60s clattering beats of “Hope” is the perfect vehicle for this type of message, and proving that all is not too heavy Glen drops the tempo for the real winner “Go With It”. Real strings and flute win hands down again, and is a sure-fire winner in anyone’s book. The final track sees the return of the old squeezebox and organ, making it a VERY 1970s affair. This CD should, and deserves, to be MASSIVE. There is something for everyone on here, and the man has nothing to prove to me. He is the epitome of a real soul artist and carries the torch that most of today’s so-called R&B artists didn’t even know had been lit and carried in the first place. Highly recommended.
