Joнииy Bяisτol - Sτяangεяs (1978) [2010 Remaster]
Underused and under-appreciated somewhat despite his megastatus as one of Motown's elite producers back in the Golden Age of soul, Joнииy Bяisτol was a gifted songwriter who put his talent to work in his solo career as well, part of which is exhibited in this 1978 collection. My favorite track is the one which opens the bunch in fact, "Strangers In The Dark Corners", which turns on a dime from strings to chorus and still brings a damn good chorus to the table.
Remastered in 2010 with loving, immaculate care.
