Lea Roberts – 1973 – Excuse Me, I Want To Talk To You

Read Reviews, Buy the Album or Download the Album for free

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.

A1. Give It Back 3.05
A2. Excuse Me 2.35
A3  Coming Back Home 3.24
A4  Jeremy 2.44
A5  Find A Place 2.59
A6  Maybe I Don’t Show It 3.36
B1  I’m Losing My Mind 4.12
B2  i know 3.14
B3  Ivory 3.06
B4  I Take My Fire With Me 2.55
B5  Let It Shine 3.52

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)

The amazing bonus track  “Love Can Break You” by Lea Roberts taken from her 1982 CD “My Silent Place” was sent by Nicolas Drosos who runs the wonderful “Mellow Soul & Sensual Grooves” blog which i suggest you should visit daily. It is full of 70’s and 80’s rare grooves.

    Excellent, Nikos! Reminds me of Marlena Shaw’s Blue Note records. You are right, unfortunately, that her second album is worse than this one. So thanks a lot. And happy New Year!
