O’s Notes: Remember the soulful hits of The Stylistics, The Spinners and The Delphonics? Yes, they were the irresistible ballads that we enjoyed during the 1970s. Bob Baldwin (p) celebrates ten of these classics all written by Thom Bell. Vivian Green sings “La-La Means I Love You”; Will Downing takes the mic for “Break Up To Make Up” with Gerald Albright (as) backing him up; Paul Taylor (ss) leads “You’re As Right As Rain”; Marion Meadows (ss) is featured on two selections notably the rerelease of “People Make The World Go Round”; and “Betcha By Golly Wow” featuring Toni Redd. There is no substitute for star power to bring the message home, decades later!
