Recensione album

Higher Plane (1981) finally got the R&B/gospel synthesis Green seemingly had been trying to attain since the mid-'70s.

He incorporated elements of gospel, interjecting his performances with wild moans and wails, but his records were stylish, boasting immaculate productions that rolled along with a tight beat, sexy backing vocals, and lush strings. The distinctive Hi Records sound that...
