The long awaited reissue from P-Vine for the Groove Diggers series. A classic "If you know you know" for collectors, this private press record rarely even makes it's way to the second hand market, but fetches jaw-dropping prices when it does. Recorded quietly in Minneapolis in 1977, the sole album from singer-songwriter and producer Ernie Story is one of the finest examples of the musical territory where AOR meets Modern Soul. Mellow grooves are a-plenty, but the occasional touch of gospel is what takes it up a notch.

Story's experience providing songs for The Impressions, Curtis Mayfield, and The Chi-Lites should be proof enough that these songs are of the highest quality. But put down your needle and take one listen to the staccato rhythm guitar and wildly percussive beat of "Disco City" and you won't have any doubts. Or perhaps the acoustic instrumental number "The E Groove" is more your style. Maybe even the softly psychedelic band and soulful vocals of "Chain Gang" is what gets you going. Across nine tracks, Ernie Story never slows down, with fantastic songs from beginning to end. — (via P-Vine)
