Product Description

2017 reissue - In the whole of R&B history, the story of 70s jazzy-soul group Leo's Sunshipp is one of the more tragic tales. So named for the Leo starsign under which lead singers Kenny Stover, Johnny Simone, and Alvin Few, resided under, the trio's breezy, freewheeling take on soul music owed a debt of gratitude to Marvin Gaye, for whom Stover and Simone had been backing vocalists for at one point. The three eventually met to form Leo's Sunshipp and immediately got to work recording a full-length album, of which only four songs were seen to completion. Not long after, Simone fell ill and died of cancer in his early thirties.

The four tracks were initially blocked from release by Stover, who later joined the group Finished Touch, but they eventually saw release through Lyons Records, who released them alongside instrumental and alternate mixes of the four tracks as We Need Each Other, in 1978. The album is an eight-song collection of infectious, emotionally unrestrained smooth soul, with summery vibes that bring to mind all the best parts of a Roy Ayers Ubiquity arrangement. These vibrant songs found new life in covers by Bobby Womack, Lulu, and Tavares, as well as sampling in tracks by Madlib, and Action Bronson.
