Overview

Another goodie from ITP Records. GQ's lead singer and guitarist, Emanuel Rahiem LeBlanc uncannily clones the phrasings and vocal inflections of Marvin Gaye and Billy Stewart. A new song "Star In Your Eyes" sounds like an old Billy Stewart tune, but isn't, and "Time For Classics," tributes' the good ole days, the Originals ("Baby I'm For Real") assist GQ on the number. LeBlanc gives Stewart and Gaye's material masterful, readings. His voice sounds better on "I Do Love You," and "Sitting in the Park," then it did the first time he remade them years ago. One of Stewart's prettiest ballads "Strange Feeling" is closer to the original than a recent rendition by label mates, Sly, Slick & Wicked. He's as effective doing Gaye, LeBlanc's interpretations of "Let's Get It On," "Distant Lover," "What's Going On," and "If I Should Die Tonight," reeked of authenticity, and are as enjoyable as the originals.
