A stunner of an album from the legendary James Mason – unreleased tracks that were recorded after his legendary Rhythm Of Life album – finally issued to the world after so many years! There’s a number of cuts here that would have been right at home on Mason’s classic (and only) album – and share that sense of soul and spirituality that’s not only completely unique, but which has gone onto make James’ music a touchstone for so many other artists over the decades – a star to reach for, even if most people can’t ever make it. A few other cuts have a slightly more modern vibe – a few more keyboards, with slight 80s elements – yet very much in the spirit of Mason’s later «Nightgruv» single, with a moody, cosmic sort of quality. A number of cuts have the great Clarice Taylor singing lead vocals – and one even has Fonda Rae in the background – and the cuts also feature loads of Fender Rhodes and other keyboards from James. Titles include «Space Waking», «The Dance Of Life», «The Love Song», «Angel Eyes», «I’ve Got Your Love», «Cool Out», and «Up Jump». © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.
