    Eddie Kendricks - Slick Lp

    Eddie Kendricks - Slick Lp
    Some how for whatever reason I missed this album and now that I've rediscovered it, I cannot get enough of it. I don't remember but was it promoted when it came out? I had brought all the other solo albums! Needless to say I think Caston & Majors were a good team with Eddie and this album for me didn't fall short.

    This is a low point for Eddie in my opinion Cali. The most beautiful thing about it was that he reunited with many of the Funk Brothers and recorded it in Detroit. As far as the material is concerned,i'll pass.I don't believe it was promoted at the time because him and Berry Gordy had a horrible relationship. It wasn't very good to begin with, but spiraled out of control when the two had a disagreement over the artwork of the "He's A Friend" album.If my memory serves me correctly this album peaked at #77 on the R&B charts,so that should tell you what you need to know.

    "Intimate Friends" was the best song on that album.

    The only standout on this lp for me is hearing Jean Terrell on the opening cut Something Shady. She is credited as Jean Thompson. Her voice is really audible on the first chorus.

    I've never really paid this album much attention either, apart from "Intimate Friends", which is a TUNE of the highest order.

    I like "Something Shady (Is Goin' On)" too! Although I can't really her Jean Terrell very well on it?

    Well, there you go,.....I quite like the album.
    Are people judging it by the poor cover....smacks of " can't be bothered'.

    Anything by Eddie is fine by me.
    I treasure my 2 Motown Solo sets by him!

    I have 13 solo albums, plus 20th Cent Masters, plus At His Best.
    I love each and every one of them.
    Contrary to most on this form, I refuse to rank them in terms of liking.

    was 'slick' a nickname of Eddie's? not sure why the title....

    Of course Leonard Caston has every right to harvest from his Boogie Down groove til there's nothing left of it to pick from, but he seems to have lost fact of the idea that it was a progressively building feel-good groove with a likewise uplifting attitude.....keep on trucking baby ......

    No one , in my estimation, is enjoying the six minute groove while Eddie pisses and moans throughout its entirety about his woman maybe being a no good cheat and he's thinking maybe he oughta leave her!



    And DIAMOND GIRL , already couldn't stand the song , didn't think it could be made even worse!!.............imo.

    But THEN CAME YOU seems to explore interesting new territory.
