Album Info


Brian and Brenda Russell were signed by Elton John and toured extensively with him in the 70s as backing vocalists. They made two albums before parting both professionally and personally. "Word Called Love" is the first, and opens with "Please Pardon Me", which was also recorded by Rufus and Chaka Khan (becoming a middling hit in the latter incarnation). While Brenda's solo output is often filed under soul, really she's more in the vein of classic singer/songwriter, inspired as much by Carole King as anyone else. Her two albums with Brian make this abundantly clear - their co-written output is very satisfyingly melodic pop music. Their singing voices are a great match - Brian in particular has an excellent range, spanning bass to tenor with a very rich timbre.

"Word Called Love" is a very strong effort that underperformed commercially and was not revived during the CD era. Only "Please Pardon Me" has appeared on compact disc, as part of one of the numerous Brenda Russell 'best-of's.

This is another of the albums I had to part with, but not before making a decent copy. By the way, I NEVER use USB turntables for that purpose, but instead decent separates from Project, Yamaha and Sony. I'm increasingly finding bad, shrill, weak vinyl rips out there - and the bad quality isn't due to the original vinyl source, but to the transfer method and equipment. Here are Brian and Brenda Russell @ 320kpbs.
