What's good people? This week, as promised, I bring you part 2 of last week's Anglo Saxon Brown/Silk post. Not gonna get too wordy on this one since I covered the bulk of the info on this band in Part 1.
As of this writing, Midnight Dancer is loooong out of print, but If you want a copy to call your very own, you can try finding one here.
Originally formed in Philadelphia, PA as Anglo Saxon Brown, the group released their first LP, Songs For Evolution on the Atlantic label in 1976.
After a few personnel changes, the outfit reinvented themselves as Silk releasing their 1979 follow-up album, Midnight Dancer, for Gamble & Huff's Philadelphia International imprint.
Both albums possess the same key elements; slick production, superb vocal & instrumental arrangements plus that unmistakable Philly sound thanks to backing by MFSB. With all this going for 'em it's really hard to see why these projects weren't able to capture greater commercial success.
Usually, I try not throw up more than one piece per post but since I still wanted to showcase both of these albums, I'll do it this way instead. This week I bring you ASBs Songs For Evolution album and sometime over the next week or so I'll add Silk's Midnight Dancer into the mix.
Singles from both albums are have turned up on various compilations over the years but both LPs in their entirety are still on the OOP list. As usual, you can find copies of each just waiting to be snatched up here and here.
Featured cut: "ASB Theme"
