Love Song  performed by  Lani Hall  (1974)
Composed by Lesley Duncan
Arranged by Herb Alpert
From: USA
Mood: spacy, heartfelt, moody, peaceful
Recommended by ambassador [profile] on Wednesday 26th April 2006

This is one of those songs that really sounds nothing like any of the artists' other songs. This is off Lani's first solo album "Sundown Lady" and was produced by her husband and label executive Herb Alpert. The song is the first song on the album and sets the tone with a nice easy bass line accented by the tinkling of an electric piano. The real money is the combination of Lani's impassioned vocals with whoever (maybe Herb?) singing a simple male vocal complement during the chorus. The song is effortlessly funky, understated and oh-so-deep. I haven't played this song for someone who hasn't loved it.

from Sundown Lady (A&M 4359)

Other Versions: Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection & Lesley Duncan, Sing Children Sing

  26 Apr 06 ·delicado: By coincidence I picked up a compilation CD of Lani's work (a 25 year A and M anniversary disc that came out in 1987!) just yesterday, and this track and 'we could be flying' were the ones that really stood out. I'm a big Brasil 66 fan but had never picked up her albums. Strange that you happened to recommend this track today!
