The music and singing are pleasant enough on Montrealer Gino Vannelli's second outing. Although lyrics are not his strong point, he avoids embarrassments like "Mama Coco" from the following year's Storm at Sunup. This release includes two of his stronger tunes in "People Gotta Move" and the title track. And his heart is in the right place, as in a tribute to Jim Croce.
People Gotta Move When They Hear Gino's Music!
I was reminded of Gino's music when I came across an amazing massage thereapist named Felicia working at Nashville Airport. What a wonderful person and hearing her name instantly reminded me of Gino's equally wonderful song, "Felicia". I wanted to get the song to play for and serenade Felicia at our next session. When I went to the Music Store to find the song, I was, of course, presented with Gino's entire catalog and was blasted back to the early '80's when I discovered his talent and was listening to his music extensively on those vinyl discs with one groove that some DJ's still use today. His music is intoxicating, inspiring any kind of movement you're up to. Dance to it, exercise, cook, work, or be as passionate as the music is with a sweetheart or spouse. No matter what, this music WILL move you. He's a great vocalist whose Italian heritage makes him uniquely qualified for sparking people's romantic tendencies. Enjoy!
i wonder if his 'crazy life' ( 1st recording under A&M co-produced by herp alpert) album will ever be available here on itunes. background vocals in Felicia was none other than 'lani hall' of sergio mendez.
Buy the whole album!
I first heard this LP in the early '90s. A friend made a chrome(!) cassette for me and I've enjoyed it ever since. Son of a New York Gun/Jack Miraculous totally rock, The Work Verse will make you cry, and Jimmy is a delight. To me, a winner from beginning to end.
