Ooh Baby, You Turn Me On


Categories: , , , , Tags: , ,


This album, which was repackaged and retitled Soul Serenade a year after its original release, catches Willie Mitchell in superb form, not only as an arranger but as a leader fronting a first-rate ensemble. Apart from a somewhat predictable chorus on “Soulfinger,” everything here has some subtlety in its presentation — details in the arrangements that surprise on repeated listening, and a crispness in the recording (this is some of the best-sounding stereo soul music of its period) that makes the repeated listening fun. Reissued by the good folks at Fat Possum.
