Slipped Away / Hungry for Your Love

Soul Spectrum

Released: 2nd April 2012 | 2 track soul single
Killer '70s Modern Soul/Funk/Boogie Crossover

Here we have the two big spins from the self-titled LP Allspice from '77. Twinspin 45 'Hungry for your Love' & 'Slipped Away' are both included here, each a sublime '70s dancer. 'Slipped Away' was first played on the rare groove scene in the early '80s and you could be forgiven for thinking Deborah Shotlow was Minnie Riperton as she was similar in range and texture. The flip 'Hungry' is an L.A Boppers style dancer with Doug Thomas on vocal duties, edited here to include the full piano breakdown and resolution. Simply the finest 70s soul from the strongest pedigree waxed onto 7 vinyl as it should have been!

Allspice was a group signed to Wayne Henderson's 'At Home' imprint, a subsidiary of Fantasy Records in California. The band consisted of Deborah 'Punkin' Shotlow, Doug Thomas, Ned Perkins & Esau Joyner. The group was responsible for the background vocals on the Ronnie Laws album 'Fever' from 1976. Deborah Shotlow also sang backgrounds for Wayne Henderson on his 'Living For A Dream' album, and also for the disco group Blacksmoke in 1977. The album featured artists from L.A. Boppers, Side Effect & Pleasure but despite these connections the band never got the recognition it deserved. In the end Allspice only recorded the one album before going their separate ways.
