Alvin Robinson - Shine On [1988]



    Classic New Orleans soul from Alvin Robinson. Alvin's got a voice that's completely unique – full and proud, but with this kind of raspy, shallow quality too – a blend that really sets him apart from anyone else we can think of, and which has always made his cuts instantly memorable! The material here is one of the first full collections we've seen of Alvin's great music – a mixture of singles from the Red Bird, Blue Cat, Tiger, and Imperial labels. Most grooves are nice and chunky – that gritty New Orleans funky mode of the 60s, but inflected with an even harder New York approach too.
