Little Bit of This and That
A twelve-tracker A Little Bit of This â€-N That, vol. 1 (MyTown 1867747) was, of course, produced again by Clay McMurray. In conjunction with my review of Preeâ€™s previous CD, A Style of My Own, I also drew up a small feature on her, which you may have read previously. I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s for nostalgia or some other reason, but there are many disco/dance cuts on the set that take you back to the days and style of LaBELLE and Donna Summer â€" Desire (by T. Colton & J. Roussel), One Look (J.K. Lightsey), You Danced Into My Life (Pree & L. Brown) and Disco People (Clay and Pree). Still on the uptempo side thereâ€™s one hot messy dancer called Iâ€™m The Lady (Clay) plus two more melodic movers, Youâ€™re Looking My Way and Love Me (both by Clay, Pree and M. Margerum). The two familiar songs are a whispery and soft interpretations of Thatâ€™s How Heartaches Are Made (Baby Washington in â€™63) and the tender 'Fallen', a theme from the movie, Pretty Woman. I Think about You is a pretty ballad composed by Clay & Blair McMurray, Tangle is an atmospheric, â€œmeditatingâ€ slowie and If Thatâ€™s the Way You Want It was penned by Lambert & Potter and recorded by Tavares in 1973. Pree was recently in Wales, in October (2006) at the Prestatyn Resort singing lead for the Andantes. She also performs on a regular basis with Spyder Turnerâ€™s STS Singers and is an in-demand background artist in Detroitâ€™s studios.
