Michael Orr - Spread Love 180g Vinyl LP
Michael Orr Spread Love 180g Vinyl LP
Many remember the '70s as the platinum age of R&B. Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind and Fire, The Spinners, Curtis Mayfield and Norman Connors were among a myriad of musicians at peak power. Indeed, it was a great time for beautiful African-American music. Michael Orr and his Spread Love album probably should have been part of that party too, but it wasn't meant to be...at least not then. Originally released in 1975 on the Detroit based Sunstar label, it was largely ignored but has since gained cult status among soul collectors worldwide.
Inspired by the musical vision of Quincy Jones, Orr and bassist Carey Harris assembled a cast of musicians and vocalists to create a timeless masterpiece which effortlessly blends cosmic soul, jazz, funk and gospel influences. Honey drips from Orr's omnipresent rich baritone and he displays a true songwriting talent throughout. Tidal Waves Music presents an official reissue of Spread Love (original copies tend to go for silly money on the second-hand market) remastered by Michael and his son Jamal Orr. Deluxe 180g vinyl LP reissue with insert containing liner notes.
