Lost but not least! Leon Timbo – You’re My Darling (Riverphlo Entertainment)
My, my, my. What an outstanding piece of Soul/Jazz we have here! But whatever went wrong with this absolute gem? A masterpiece that never reached the exposure it truly deserved at the end. A simple matter of deal as a matter of fact. One of these things which ended up havin’ it included exclusively on the Expansion Records ‘Soul Shine’ compilation last Summer. Not that bad one might think. But leavin’ the original label (Riverphlo) unable to properly work on it as a direct consequence.
No offense meant, but what a mistake as a matter of fact! A youthful error?!?. This in ddition to the fact that Expansion Records promo is almost equal to zero. And what a waste of time, money and eventually talent at the end regarding this Soul monsterjam by the likes of Atlanta-based singer Leon Timbo. A man who just sounds like the spiritual son of icons such as Marvin Gaye, Frankie Beverly or Brian McKnight. Meanwhile Mano Hanes, responsible for the production, is most likely a name to count with from now on…
