CECIL LYDE『Stone Free』LP
Price: ¥ 3,500 + tax
★First complete limited edition
This is the only solo album by Chicago soul singer Cecil Ride, who has a worldwide following of soul fanatics, and is also regarded as one of the greatest Early 80s modern soul/boogie albums of all time!
Stone Free is the only solo work by Cecil Ride, released in 1980 as a new challenge after relocating to LA after working with big names such as Curtis Mayfield, Shy Lights and Gene Chandler in his native Chicago. The title track 'Stone Free', with its groovy intertwining instrumentation and colourful vocals that combine austere, dandy singing with a sexy falsetto, is the first track, followed by the refreshingly melodic, 80s modern A2 'I'm So Glad I Found'. Your Love' and B1 'Money's Funny' are unparalleled. And tracks such as the funk tune A3 'More Love', with its growling synths and bass, and the final track, 'Funk Is Here To Stay', are sure to stick with funk lovers too! The original version is a collector's item and a must-listen for any soul fan!
