Father’s Children

Father’s Children (Mercury, 1979, STEREO)

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A PAYPAL-ONLY LISTING. 

Brand new shrink-wrapped 12” vinyl LP. Cut direct from the original tapes and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl to ensure the very best sound quality.

Vocalion VOCLP 3301 

An eight-strong soul group whose roots lay in the Washington DC area, Father’s Children released just one album, their eponymously titled debut, recorded for the Mercury label in late 1978. Produced by The Crusaders’ Wayne Henderson, for these sessions he augmented Father’s Children’s line-up with, among others, Bobby ‘The Genie’ Lyle (synths) and backup vocalists Augie ‘AJ’ Johnson, Gregory Matta and Miki Howard from the Henderson-produced group Side Effect. The album that resulted really is the definition of the term ‘rare groove’. Overlooked at the time of its original release in 1979, it later became a cult classic on the underground soul circuit thanks to its high steppin’ rhythms, tight, funky arrangements and, of course, Father’s Children’s gorgeous gospel-influenced vocal harmonies. Hollywood Dreaming, which has since become the album’s most celebrated track, evokes the sun-drenched boulevards of Los Angeles, whilst Got to Get Away is undoubtedly one of the highlights: an irresistible mid-tempo number that seems to define what soul music was about – or should have always been about – at the end of the ’70s. The arrangement is just right … and listen to those voices! Wayne Henderson leaves the producer’s chair for My Grandma to contribute a characteristically robust trombone solo, and the album ends in an upbeat mood with You Can Get It, a straight down-the-line funk shuffle punctuated by a rousing brass arrangement and Father’s Children’s energetic vocal delivery. These are just some of the treasures found within the grooves of Father’s Children’s first and only outing on the Mercury label, and Vocalion proudly presents it on 180g virgin vinyl and cut direct from the original master tapes.

We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
