iTunes Review

The 17 deeply eccentric, hopelessly obscure selections on Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-84 take listeners on a nocturnal ramble through the low-fidelity underworld of late-‘70s and early-‘80s R&B. Cheap synthesizer textures, primitive drum machines, and distorted vocals appear here in abundance, but tracks like Otis G. Johnson’s spectral synth-gospel number “Time to Go Home” prove transfixing listening nonetheless. Much of Personal Space occupies the same woozy, late-night space conjured by the more narcotized late P-Funk releases or by the work of early electro acts like Newcleus or Kano. Yet where those performers scored underground hits on the R&B circuit, promising groups like Spontaneous Overthrow (whose claustrophobic recession-era lament “All About Money” is one of the most remarkable tunes here) never made much impact outside of the tight-knit local music scenes from which they sprang. By documenting these small local releases, Personal Space has uncovered a previously neglected corner of soul music history.
