Ace Spectrum, 1974

From the unfortunate vault of wonderful albums that nobody knows: Ace Spectrum's "Inner Spectrum" released on Altantic/Wonderbird, 1974. I stumbled onto "Don't Send Nobody Else" and I'm hooked. Get it HERE

From Dusty Groove America:

A tremendous debut from Ace Spectrum -- a harmony quartet who never cracked the charts as much as some of their east coast contemporaries, but who were every bit as great as the bigger names on the east coast scene! The album's got a soaring sound that's strongly influenced by Philly, but recorded in New York -- a warmly compressed style that's professional and focused, and beautifully put together with arrangements from Bert DeCoteaux and production by the team of Tony Silvester and Ed Zant. We love the group the best on the mellower cuts -- which have a quality that's deeply personal amidst the smoothness -- but even the more upbeat tracks are plenty darn great too! Titles include the sublime slow numbers "Moving On" and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" -- plus "Don't Send Nobody Else", "If You Were There", "Pickup", "I Don't Want To Play Around", and "Me & My Love". Expanded CD features 3 bonus tracks -- "Don't Send Nobody Else" in both mono single and alternate versions -- plus the previously unissued "Runnin Out Baby"
