Album Review

Though journalist-turned-crooner-songwriter Ronn Matlock is not known to many fans of '70s soul, his lone album is evidence of an overlooked talent. His husky, smooth, understated baritone and sensitive compositional skills merge to create an album free of the saturation of many of his contemporaries' efforts. It's the swooping ballads and swaying mid-tempos here, like the plush "Take Me to the Top (Of Your Mountain)" and the breezy "I Can't Forget About You," that truly show his essence. Michael Stokes' organic production and arrangement expertise is a steady complement to Matlock's unique stylings, whether it's on the low-key "Feeling Something" or the more agile "Back Street." Love City may not be considered a timeless masterpiece à la material of Barry White or the Isley Brothers from the same time period, but it's as impressive a companion for any retro listening party — or rainy afternoon. ~ Justin M.

rare classic! now sounds even better with remastering!!

I had borrowed this album from a friend in '79 ...on cassette! So you can imagine how much more detail is available on this download. I've looked for this in digital form since the development of CD's. Come to find out, I had mispelled Ronn (!) and only located it today. Great production, powerful and evocative voice and still holds up almost 30 years later! give a listen....

It appeared by Kendricks' protégés the Posse on Motown's VIP subsidiary in December 1971, but no promotion made it dead on...
