Carlene Davis - I Remember (Boss LP 197X)


Carlene Davis - I Remember (Boss Records LP 197X)
Brilliant early album from the Canadian songstress. Produced by Sydney Crooks in the mid-late 70s?  Vintage, classic vocals over bouncy mid-70s rhythms. The outstanding track is a sensational duet with Johnny Osbourne - When I Call Your Name. He also does backing vocals on Right Time Of The Night. This surprise LP came into my possession quite by accident when i'd bought a large batch of reggae 12s a few years back. Included are 3 extra Crooks produced 12''s on Pioneer.
