Golden Classicsby Pockets
A misleading title, while not "golden classics" these are the best of the Pockets' -- a self-contained band from Baltimore -- brief run. A career harpooned by misfortune and the complicated dynamics of keeping an eight-piece band intact. Pockets' sound was uplifting, lively, and vibrant; they were equally as adept on ballads, ups, mids, and straight jams. Their lead singer sounded like Lenny Williams, and pulsating rhythms, pumping horns, and honed backing vocals were their identifiers. The 19 songs represent a great overview and include "Come Go With Me," their most successful record, along with picks like "So Delicious," "In the Pocket," "Elusive Lady," and "One Day at a Time." An interesting collection that never bores, no wonder Earth, Wind & Fire took an interest in their career.

I have been looking for some of this old school funk for along time, now im happy, excellent cd, brings back good memories
I can clearly remember while stationed at Ft. Hood, TX. in 1978, this album came out. And what an album it was. While living in the barracks with other enlisted men the song, ''Come and Go With Me'' became our theme song for every DJ party we would have. How wonderful it is to review Barnes & Noble and relive those ''old school'' memories. Thanx Barnes & Noble. ex G.I.
