Roy C.: More Sex and More Soul [Mercury, 1977]
Having turned soul artist just as the style was going out of fashion, he's now earned a following in Africa and the Caribbean, and more power to him. As you might have guessed from the title, this isn't up to the standard of Sex and Soul--strings, thinner material. But it's quirky and basic, with witty horn charts and a vocal attack that now seems pleasantly anachronistic. Killer cut: Roy shoots a friend who's in bed with Roy's wife and is inspired to the moral reflection that now he's "in a whole lot of trouble." B
