BBR delves deeper into the vaults of Salsoul Records to bring you AURRA – A LITTLE LOVE!
AURRA began as a spinoff from the R&B Funk group Slave in 1980 and featured members Curt Jones, Staleana Young, Charles Carter and Budd Hankerson. AURRA recorded three albums for Salsoul during the 80s and tasted chart success with their first offering, Send Your Love when "Are You Single” reached #16 on the R&B charts.
A LITTLE LOVE features Stephen "The Fearless Leader” Washington, a talented multi-instrumentalist and member of Slave, who would co-write and play on the entire album while tending to production duties with the assistance of Tom Lockett, helping AURRA reach their biggest success of the 80s when ‘Make Up Your Mind’ climbed all the way to #6 on the R&B Singles chart while simultaneously achieving an impressive #71 on the US Pop charts.
The rapport between Curt Jones and Starleena Young is brilliantly showcased on A LITTLE LOVE on tracks such as the love funk jam ‘Patience’ but it’s the heart-warming ‘It’s You’, a sweet duet about a couples first meeting and falling in love with one another which really gives us an insight into the Jones and Young dynamic.
BBR is very proud to present this fully expanded and lovingly remastered edition of AURRA – A LITTLE LOVE.
Complete with extensive liner notes with interviews and added bonus content, this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Soul, Funk, R&B and Disco fans out there!
Having created a stir with their debut, this eminently funky R&B combo was now ready to light the sky on fire. All fat bass and liquid guitar riffing, A Little Love was a nice combination of dirty and sweet, ballad and body-shaker. It was a smart concoction; the LP would give the band a Top Ten hit, while "Make up Your Mind" emerged a popular opener in its own right, giving Aurra their highest-ever chart hit. And it's no wonder. Among the best songs the duo ever recorded, "Make up Your Mind" was a complex slab of funked-up disco augmented by a superb classic rock guitar solo from Steve Washington, sandwiched within a fat bassline. But Aurra didn't let it go with that. "A Little Love" itself is a sweet song with a ferocious bite, the intro unleashing a heavy hook before the rest of the show, while "Thinking of You" remains the LP's best ballad. Stronger across some tracks than others, A Little Love is ultimately an uneven effort. However, when Aurra is in top form they are truly outstanding, and this LP is worth having because of that.
