A mixture of smooth LA soul with some deeper tendencies. A few very good funky tracks but killer sweet soul otherwise, all arranged by Wade Marcus.
Can’t really find any infos about her anywhere. This a rare album, her debut, which is much better than the 2nd one.
This is a @320 vinyl rip of the original United Artists LP including covers.

It is one of those situations where you can hardly find a word or two about the artist or the album, but at the same time you get easily hooked to the music as soon as you’ve just listened to it. Yeah, music speaks louder than words for sure…
Although it was released on the mighty United Artists record label, it seems we know almost nothing about it nowdays. So, be it…. Just listen to the powerful voice of Lea and enjoy the music by yourselves. Sometimes it is funky, sometimes it is slowing down the speed, but always remains at that wonderful mid tempo mood, sometimes it is in a lush environment, you can almost see the lustre of the pearls, you can almost swear Bobby Womack is somewhere near…. Oh dear, it is all good music at last. (Groovy Emmanuel)
