Lab Overview

Alice Clark's 1972 self-titled is one of those rare wantlist albums that's quality from beginning to end. More people should know about this gem. Clark grew up in Bed Stuy, put together a few successful 45s before recording this lone album with arranger Ernie Wilkins and a band that included Bernard Purdie and Cornell Dupree. Despite the stellar production and Aretha-grade soulfulness oozing throughout, the album was a flop and Clark quit the biz. Some of her songs later became hits in the British northern soul scene, and this LP quickly became a coveted piece. Tracks to check: "I Keep It Hid," "Looking At Life," "Charms Of The Arms Of Love," "Don't You Care" and "Hey Girl." Also got to give it up this early 70s Mainstream Records series with its strong visual identity and that accompanying feeling of musical randomness (the excellent Jack Wilkins was also recently reissued). First-ever official reissue on Wewantsounds with remastered sound and original gatefold artwork, recommended.
