HOME BOY AND THE C.O.L.『Out Break』LP
Price: ¥ 3,500 + tax
★Limited edition LP★Japanese OBI-strip
Chicago soul singer Cecil Ride, who has a huge following among soul fanatics around the world, has finally reissued two extremely rare albums he left behind under the name Homeboy and the C.O.L. after the release of the 80s modern soul/boogie classic Stone Free!
An album deemed by many to be Chicago-native Cecil Lyde’s crowning achievement, Out Break was released in 1984 with his group Home Boy and the C.O.L. - the follow-up to 1982’s self-titled debut for the group. While many of Lyde’s earlier works redeem the charms of their lo-fi production qualities, the ambition of Out Break is plain to see as the band erupts into 8 minute opener “You Turn Me Out,” and deliver an 80s electro-funk record packed with hits. This album is a wholesome, luxurious listening experience, and reflective moments like the ballad “I Don’t Want To Be A Movie Star,” broadens the dynamic range by easing the pace and building tension via passionate vocal harmonies. P-VINE is thrilled to be reissuing the album as a limited edition LP with an iconic Japanese obi strip attached.
