What's missing in today's R & B? Give a listen to Switch and you'll find out. Tight Production, Soulful Arranging, Heavenly Harmonizing, Swoonful Singing and just enough Funk to make you shake your booty. From the opening horns of There'll Never Be to the last glass shattering note from the great Bobby Debarge, this is a great cd. The only song missing is Calling All Girls, another masterful slow number. In fact it should have replaced I Do Love You, not one of their better efforts. Today's R & B does not have the soulful melody, funky edge and excellent singing that leads, Phillip Ingram and Bobby Debarge produced. Excellent singing without the phony gymnastics in lieu of a voice that some of today's singers employ. Even though the group did not last very long, they are a memorable one. Some Gems: There Never Be, My Friend in the Sky, I Wanna Be Closer(terrific Ernie Watts sax),Dont Take My Love Away, I Call Your Name, Call on Me, You and I. Want to hear what Switch was all about and cant get the original lps? Pick this up. You'll be pleased!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
