Bobby Hebb - Love Games (1970)

The voice and pen that crafted the multi-format standard Sunny took four years to create as exquisite an album of adult contemporary R&B as you'll find. The place in time for Love Games is key to understanding the album's importance as a pioneering classic of original soul music. Love Games may have been Bobby Hebb's personal outpouring of grief over his divorce, but the resulting pearl from this intense period is an album masterpiece containing stunning adult contemporary R&B. With the guiding hand of producer James Fleming and gorgeous arrangements by Fleming, Richard Rome, and Dave Roberts, Bobby Hebb conceptualizes a complex album of loss and personal survival. There is one co-write from the late Sandy Baron, and that composition, Flower, is Motown flavored with jazz. Hebb said he wrote this after watching a butterfly go to the same flower day after day until a bee invaded the space, the butterfly never returned to that same flower. But outside of catching the ear of other musicians and loyal fans, Love Games was hardly as successful as all the music it would inspire. It got no promotion from the label, and the album cover would have better suited the Ray Coniff Singers. A Better Love continues exploring the theme of how some people treat love like a sport, but through it all there's a refreshingly upbeat attitude, and a textbook of material which quietly influenced the direction R&B would take through the late '70s and early '80s, music which sounds as fresh today as when it was written.
