After a five year break Gary B. & Love Stone (formerly Gary Brown) returns with his latest CD on the Da’Soul Recordings Group label, “PEACE, LOVE & JOY”. A departure from Gary’s earlier works, “JOURNEY” (2004), and “TWO” (2005) “PEACE, LOVE & JOY” mixes heavy lush grooves and slick vocal styles that immediately takes you to the mature groove that Da’Soul has become known for.
The opening track, “Can’t Get Enough of You” states emphatically the love this man has for his woman, as to quote a line from the song: “From the time I took your hand. With you is where I want to be, made me a better man”. Gary B. keeps this vibe flowing with the ethereal “Everything In Everyway”, and dancers of the world unite as the funk/rock anthem “Get Free” jams through your ear buds.
Other delights from this CD are “Pretty Lady”, the psychedelic “Baby” and the funky closer, “Magazine Face”. The songwriting and solid production makes “PEACE, LOVE & JOY” a must have CD for any collection.
