Billy Paul - 360 Degrees of Billy Paul & War of the Gods - Hybrid SACD
2 x Stereo / Multi-channel SACDs
360 Degrees Of Billy Paul, and War Of The Gods.
"The singer is, of course, Billy Paul, best known for his “Me And Mrs Jones” classic hit, written by the inimitable songwriting team of Gamble and Huff, and here assisted by Cary Gilbert. But with his second album, 360 Degrees Of Billy Paul, the singer also provided compelling covers of Carole King’s “It’s Too Late”, Elton John’s “Your Song”, and Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together”. These were alongside Gamble/Huff originals (and other writers) like “Brown Baby”, “Am I Black Enough For You”, and a few others.
A year later, Gamble and Huff upped the game for the capable Billy Paul, supplying him with a collection of timely and spiritual songs that go up alongside the classic soul and political evaluations of Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On? (1971). Billy Paul released War Of The Gods to critical acclaim, and acquired a successful Top40 song, “Thanks For Saving My Life”. That song is a strong use of his talents and he was rewarded with chart placement."
