REVIEW: The Sounds Of Rhythm’s “A Street Corner Symphony: Under The Blue Light”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic I’m a huge fan of doo-wop and acapella R&B, and this is what A Street Corner Symphony: Under The Blue Light (Rusty Key) by The Sounds Of Rhythm are offer. It looks and sounds like a group of four longtime friends, gathering together and saying “hey, let’s make an album with some of our favorite songs growing up, make it feel like the good ol’ days”. On the CD you have nice, polished takes of “Daddy’s Home”, “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)”, “Ball Of Confusion (That’s What The World Is Today)”, and “For Your Precious Love”, done in a manner that sounds like you’re right in the studio or concert hall with them. If you have a love, if not need, for that classic soulful sound because you think NE-YO and Usher sound like gacks, this is definitely a CD you must buy and treasure. Turn the blue light on, it’s time to get romantic.
