The Best of New York City-Im Doin Fine Now(2 in 1)


For the collector, this is the CD to have. Rather than "The Best Of," it is actually New York City's first two albums, as they were originally released, on one CD. And, since, to my knowledge, they only released two albums, this CD might more aptly be titled "The Complete New York City." The critics don't seem to agree with me. However, though their first album, "I'm Doin' Fine Now," contains the "hits," it is their Thom Bell produced second album that is the real gem. By then, NYC had stopped trying to sound like the Spinners having developed its own sound, which was not as flashy but just as soulful. Not as "singles" oriented, "Soulful Road" has a stylistic continuity their first effort lacks. It remains one of my favorite albums and I highly recommend this CD for anyone who loves the Philly Sound.
