Remastered & expanded 2005 reissue of the debut album for the Philadelphian quintet. Originally released in 1974. Blue Magic, arguably one of the finest Philly vocal groups comprised of Theodore ("Wizard") Mills, Vernon Sawyer, Wendell Sawyer, Keith Beaton, and Richard Pratt and utilised the talents of both the MFSB house band based at Sigma Sound Studios and the stable of Philly-based songwriters who were at the apex of their global run of chart smashes at the time of the album's release in 1974 with "Sideshow," a hit ballad that was as clever as it was melancholy. The rest of the album is also superb, and includes the snappy, proto-disco "Look Me Up," as well as dreamy, gossamer ballads like "Spell" and "What's Come Over Me" All of the albums that Blue Magic recorded in the '70s are worth hearing, but this 1974 debut is arguably the finest and most essential of the bunch, now remastered and expanded with the non-album B-sides "Guess Who" and "Where Have You Been" plus the Tom Moulton mix of "Look Me Up".
