2011 release. This 1979 LP from The Melton Brothers with Ms. Alfie Moss is prized by collectors from England, Japan and Sweden to Vermont, New York, California and beyond. The brothers initially produced 250 copies of the colored LP, but for whatever reason, the rest of the band wasn't backing it, so they rounded out the press with 1,250 copies of the more visible black and tan version. Official license with liner notes. "Alfie's soaring vocals dance above and below the melody with an astonishing range and self-assured grace that is distinctly reminiscent of the legendary jazz vocalists of her early years. Dale's keyboard workout instantly sets the warm mood, as Dennis keeps the rhythm and Tyrone supplies the addicting boom-bap that simply makes you want to move. The bottom line with this album is that throughout the recording it sounds like they are all having the time of their lives, which in turn is quite uplifting. The crisp live recording allows you to visualize the band's energy. During every listen I picture Alfie strutting across the stage as the rest of the band exchange looks of approval, all realizing that they are part of something special. If you find this record, you, like me will be very happy." --Nate Bosshard-Blackey, DJ on WRUV FM Burlington 90.1, Burlington, Vermont.
