First Stereo Original We Have Seen In Seven Years. This LP Was Still Sealed, But The Shrink Was Torn Away, So We Opened It To Check The Labels. This Is A New, Unplayed Copy Of A Great Album. “Hayes Unleashes His Familiar Blend Of Highly Introspective Jazz, Soul, And Blues. He Turns Willie Dixon's Blues Standard "I Just Wanna Make Love To You" Into A Sensual Medley With B.B. King's Signature Composition "Rock Me Baby." In Direct Contrast To The Aggression In Much Of His Later Work, His Originals -- Most Notably The Sexy "Precious, Precious" And A Blast From His Past, "You Don't Know (Like I Know)," Are Almost Discomfortingly Intimate. His Stylish And Classic Rendering Of "When I Fall In Love" Demonstrates Hayes' Obvious Understanding And Deep Abiding Appreciation Of Pop Standards. His Emotive Rendering Is Not Unlike That Of Nat King Cole -- Who Recorded The Song Himself To Great Effect. The Long, Spoken "Raps" That Hayes Would Become Known For On Subsequent Releases Had Yet To Be Fully Developed. However The Idea Of Stretching The Song Out Melodically And Extending The Arrangement Yields One Of The Most Poignant And Unlikely Medleys Of All Time, Combining The Count Basie/Jimmy Rushing Classic "Going To Chicago Blues" With, Of All Things, "Misty.” Lindsay Planer, AMG.
