Gino is a Coward!

Man, do i ever love Gino Washington! Not a whole lot of soul/r&b acts can really hold up across an entire LP but this comp of Mr Washington’s best sides is totally killer from start to finish. “Out Of This World” is one of the most insane album openers i’ve ever come across. We’re talking James Brown on the TAMI show breakneck pace here! I don’t think you can even dance to this song! I always just end spazzing and pogoing through the thing and that gets me by. But other top tunes like “Romeo” “Gino is a Coward” and my favorite moody slow burner “Like My Baby” are really top notch tunes. Is it possible to not like this stuff? I mean throw on any really great soul single with a killer back beat, some big brass and really catchy hook and you’ll have everyone from crusty punks to your parents accountant dancing like retards. If you haven’t heard Gino, pick up this album and have a party, it’s time you lived a little!
