Ty Karim – Wear Your Natural Baby LP (Kent)
Only 1 left in stock
With the resurgence of vinyl, Kent has gone back to their extensive back catalogue and magicked up a sultry soul stomper of an LP from the revered Ty Karim.
It features all her dancefloor favourites: from the exciting and super-rare 60s 45 ‘You Just Don’t Know’ to the smooth 70s soul floater ‘Lightin’ Up’ and on to the hipper-than-hip call to ‘Wear Your Natural, Baby’. We can see she took to this message to heart, looking at our fabulous colour cover photo.
There are a couple of slower soulful moments in the shape of the haunting big beat ballad ‘All At Once’ and the unlikely, yet successful, cover of James Taylor’s ‘Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight’. It is the first time on vinyl for the bluesy ‘Don’t Make Me Do Wrong’ and Ty’s solo version of ‘If I Can’t Stop You (I Can Slow You Down)’ which will please Modern Soul DJs. Those guys will have the universally acclaimed ‘Wear Your Natural, Baby’ on Romark or Kent but will they be able to resist this package?
This album has been 48 years in the making and will be the first of a new series of Kent vinyl LPs. It will make a perfect companion piece to Timmion’s Little Ann and O.C. Tolbert pressings and the cover is equally iconic. – Ace Records
