"I Will Be Your Friend" has a great 1987 feel to it...think about the Sunset Strip sound at that time, Sergeant Tucker...World Class Wreckin' Cru...you're not far removed from there. Very summery and classy to boot. Another unreleased gem is far more up to date, and that is a beat-driven head-nodder called "My Love" where Judy Taylor takes the lead. This track has some kick when played loudly, and again could have caused a stir should it have been in the public domain at the time. Same goes for two tracks called "Special" - two remixes, in fact, a soulful one and a remix that is equally as soulful with a great sax break. The basspin rumbles and the vocals are absolutely superb. These sound to me like brand new songs and I can heartily recommend both in equal measure. This release is one of a soulful trio of releases, and I shall be covering all three. Well worth a purchase and great to hear these previously unissued songs here and now.
