Milton Wright - Friends And Buddies



Friends And Buddies is an amazing record. It was released in 1975 by the leading Miami soul label Alston. The album as a whole is really solid and the sound and the mood of the record is something that I haven't heard on any other record. There's a bit of Mizell brothers, a bit of Stevie, some Mayfield, but still the warm, jazzy and soulful sound is unique.

If you're feelin Friends And Buddies, make sure to also cop Spaced. It's Wright's 1977 ultra-rare LP that was recently reissued by Jazzman Records. It's an amazing album and almost impossible to find as an original because Alston Records dumped the album at the time since KC & The Sunshine Band (also recording for Alston) were getting so popular. To make things even more tragic, almost all the unsold copies of Spaced were destroyed in a fire. Well, now it's available as a loud, good quality pressing and I can't wait to get my copy.
