Robert Goulet is one of those quality singers with a straight ahead, no nonsense vocal style that commands attention. Add the ingredients of top notch songs, tastefully programmed to fit many moods, impressive orchestral backings, and you have a shining example of the art of popular song. That is precisely what is on display in this excellent coupling of two of Robert’s Columbia albums. A Goulet collection will guarantee that you hear every word of every song such is the clarity and precision of his diction and phrasing. The voice is strong, powerful and confident but also sensitive to the lyrics whatever the mood. Not surprisingly, given his many Broadway show appearances, Robert favours melodies from the musical theatre while also regularly embracing the great standards from the pens of leading popular songwriters. In this highly tuneful and melodic treasury of good songs, Goulet has the accompanying services of two of America’s most distinguished arrangers and conductors.

The two classic albums reissued on this CD are from 1975 and 1976. While they didn't exactly set the world on fire, they DID leave the listener with no doubt as to just how talented the musicians that made up MFSB were and that they could tackle everything from Disco to Funk to Soul to MOR-Pop with grace, class and musical virtuosity. It's definitely great to have these classics on CDs as these albums capture the magic of the Philadelphia Soul sound at a time when it had truly reached its apex. Enjoy!

"Here I Am", the 5th album by Dionne Warwick, was recorded during the summer and fall of 1965 and released in December 1965 by Scepter Records. The LP was produced by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. This album, as was usually the case until 1968, was recorded at Bell Sound Studios in New York City. The album's lead single, the title track "Here I Am", was featured in the film What's New, Pussycat? Despite this, the single failed to make the Top 40 in the United States. The follow-up, "Looking With My Eyes", was prominently featured on the dance show "Hullabaloo", but did not make the chart either. The third single from the album, "Are You There (With Another Girl)" was released in December, 1965, and became a hit, making the Top 40.

In 1978 Marlena Shaw released her second album on Columbia Records, "Acting Up", the follow up to "Sweet Beginnings". "Acting Up" once again featured the production genius of the legendary Bert De Coteaux with musical contributions from Abraham Laboriel whose talent made him one of the most in demand bass players of recent years, travelling and working with artists such as Lionel Ritchie, Quincy Jones and Chaka Khan to name a few and on drums, ex-Motown session drummer, Quentin Dennard, all of which helped the album reach an impressive #60 on the Cash Box R&B Charts and #171 on the Billboard 200.

Some marvelous deep soul and above-average uptempo numbers from the sorely overlooked Controllers. Their MCA albums languished due to poor promotion, but they deserved a much better fate. This had some excellent love tunes, notably "My Secret Fantasy" and "Sleeping Alone." But as they did with Little Milton and Bobby "Blue" Bland, MCA simply couldn't or wouldn't put enough muscle behind the group's songs.

"Moods" is the 8th studio album by Neil Diamond, released by Uni Records in 1972. It contained the second of his #1 songs, "Song Sung Blue", and was something of a follow-up in style to the highly experimental "Tap Root Manuscript". Billboard praised "Moods" highly, saying it contained "brilliant, diversified material." This album, and its follow-up live album "Hot August Night", are generally acknowledged to be the two most important recording projects of Diamond's career in terms of defining his signature sound for the future. Within the music industry and among music professionals this is considered one of Diamond's better and more creative recordings. It received a Grammy Award nomination for Album of the Year for 1972.
