Lou Rawls "All Things in Time" (Vinyl) Released in 1976, this is, quite literally, the 30th album (give or take) that Lou had released in just 14 years. Astonishing. While his early years were spent following the mold of Sinatra and other crooners, by the point this album was released the "Philly Sound" was in full swing with the likes of the O'Jays and others. This album is a fun, relaxed combination of soul, disco, funk and swing with Lou Rawls demonstrating an ease to float effortlessly between them all. The production is warm and smooth with Rawls' choclately voice always ladled on top like a rich gravy. Yum.
