Inner City Blues kicks off with its title track, a burning version of the Marvin Gaye tune with Washington lending a heft and depth to it that reveals the sophistication of Gaye's original. From Airto's hand drums and Muhammad's hi-hat whispers to the chunky wah-wah guitar vamp and a funky bassline by Carter, it becomes clear that Washington's methods of deep soul articulation on his horn extend into the heart of this mix.

Such a fun story how he ended up doing this first record. Hank Crawford was supposed to do this, but got arrested, or something. Regardless, the stuff on here is pretty top notch in many ways (in you ask me). Crispy sound with Idris Muhammad on drums, and some early Bob James arrangements and keys. Some interesting versions of known melodies, and for the most part pretty pleasant, but with some hardness to the rhythms. Quite a beautiful little first record, one of my favourites. <3!
Great version
I have a version of this title. The barcodes on the side labels match but it doesn't list the address of Kudu Records anywhere. Any help?
