Sarah Vaughan: I Need You More (Than Ever Now) (Mainstream)

This time a record by a very famous artist, usually not associated with soul music. The 70s heralded a rebirth in Vaughan's career. In 1971, Bob Shad, who had worked as a producer with Vaughan during her contract with Mercury, asked her to record for his new label, Mainstream. The final result were five albums, including a live in Japan. This uplifting side is arranged by Gene page and shows Sarah's incredible vocal skills.
