EUGENE RECORD - OVERDOSE OF JOY


While my preferences and allegiances will always remain firmly rooted in the harder edged sounds of 60's soul, there's quite a few "modern" soul gems that have grown on me recently, and this sweet little number truly tugs at my heart strings.

As leader of the Chi-Lites, Eugene Record wrote a staggering amount of great records until the group ended shortly before this record was cut. Sadly, it didn't achieve any type of hit status in this disco dominated era. The relaxed groove and sweet lyrics just feel PERFECT for a relaxed, sunny Labor Day.

Oh man, just the thing...

The hero of Warner/Reprise: Mo Ostin.

Mo certainly WAS a hero. I know someone who worked for Warner Bros from 67-82 and she told me firsthand accounts of how wonderful Mo was to the artists. The music business went sour when the last of the execs like Mo faded from view.
