DSXXX w/ Raashan Ahmad & Vinyl? Check! 6


This 1977 album produced by Phil Benton & Brick has something for everyone (just ask India.Arie)! Containing such funk staples as "Dusic" and "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody," Brick has some gems I could even hear War performing.

The standout though, is the final song, the one that sounds like nothing else on Brick. "Good Morning Sunshine" is the lone blues tinged track and stirs a wealth of emotion in the listener. Although, the singer is welcoming the sun that has been absent, there's no joy in his greeting. It's as if he's anticipating the rain that may or may not come, or the wait for the sun has left him weakened. The sparse guitar licks assist in creating a feeling of weariness on this excellent example of great lyrics and music

This is a really cool nice mellow track to listen to after a long work day. I know you said this song is different from the rest on the album but my interest is piqued overall. I wonder what the vibe was in the studio during recording. I can picture some dude caking in the corner (in that Leon Haywood fit.lol...Good tune SeleKtor, easy listening @ its finest.
