crossover soul - 1975-79 LA sessions
essential, rare, unreleased & newly found recordings from a stunning soul voice, whose short-lived career was sadly underrated at the time.
‘let’s get together’, ‘honey can i’ & ‘it’s no mistake’ have all become in-demand modern soul dance discs, while darrow’s version (here in an extended form) of ‘the rising cost of love’ is considered by many to be the best reading of this great song. there was a complete lp scheduled for release on crossover with the running order already established. this album was never issued, so it is presented here for the first time along with other outstanding, fully finished, unissued recordings.
