Brilliant and somewhat undiscovered Modern Soul album with the clubby “Can’t Do Without You” and sample ready “Love The Way You Love Me“.
One of a handful of records released on late-1970s Los Angeles imprint HDM Records, Eddie Horan’s 1978 album Love The Way You Love Me is a classic example of what happens when soul meets disco. The title track, which reached #91 on the R&B charts in 1978, is warm and breezy like the first day of spring soft keys and flutes build effortlessly into Horan’s chorus, and the rest of the album follows suit. Between uptempo disco cuts like “Turn My World Back Around” or “Can’t Do Without You” and smooth ballads such as “Concert By The Sea“, soul listeners of all kind will find something to enjoy about this late disco-era hidden gem.
An overlooked gem from 70s soul singer Eddie Horan – an artist we only know from this great little record – which is a sweet mellow soul classic! There’s a mix of tightness and easygoing soul here that’s mighty nice – as Eddie sings in this confident, yet laidback style that’s right up there with the best male soul modes of the east coast scene – set here to these great arrangements that are full, but never overwhelming – just moving at this sweet pace that’s perfect for the vocals! The set’s got loads of midtempo gems that are mighty nice – some smooth steppers that have made the album a treasure for years – despite Eddie’s lack for great fame.
