First reissue of Sue Barker's sole album, a fantastic, rare soul-jazz LP recorded in Adelaide, Australia, in 1976, and originally released the same year by Crest International. 180-gram vinyl. Sue Barker is a jazz singer who was never afraid of throwing in a little soul -- most of the album features covers of songs made famous by Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and James Brown. And Sue Barker is also more than just a vocal album -- there's a lot of space for instrumental solos from Barker's team of top Adelaide musicians. Her hip seven-piece combo perfectly matches all of her vocal inflections -- jazzy when needed, with more soul at other moments, and often with more of a '60s acoustic mode than the more electric and groovy instrumentation used by other singers of the time. The arrangements are by Grahame Conlon, the guitarist in the group.
