This 2017 reissue of Brenton Wood’s classic album Oogum Boogum will be well received by many, as the 2015 RSD reissue of it is already going for $50+. Fans of 60’s soul or southern R&B will digg his super smooth vocals (ala Curtis Mayfield) and tight band.
Brenton Wood’s charmingly unpredictable phrasing and his infectious sense of good times made the smooth uptown soul of “The Oogum Boogum Song” and “Gimme Little Sign” into hits in 1967. Despite his skill as a pop-soul vocalist, Wood was never able to match such heights again, yet those two songs became genuine R&B classics of their era.
A wonderful, upbeat album.
