Moods Moods on LP

Continuing their tradition of unearthing hidden treasure, BBE presents another rare classic, pressed to heavyweight vinyl. Moods was the self titled debut (and only) album from a local St. Louis vocal group of the same name headed up by band leader, musician and producer Melvin Turnage. The group met in high school and disbanded soon afterwards, although Turnage is still touring with his own band, performing alongside Harry Belafonte, Shalamar and Sammy Davis Jr. over the years.

Originally released in 1978, Moods is a fantastic example of the 'modern soul' sound which bridged the gap between Northern soul and disco, introducing synthesizers alongside incredibly tight vocal harmonies and lush instrumental arrangements. Only a tiny number of copies are still in existence, making this LP highly sought after by record collectors. With a track from the album featured on BBE's recent Private Wax Vol. 2 compilation which garnered support from Gilles Peterson among others, it's surely time for this gem of a long player to be discovered by a new generation of crate diggers.
