George Faith :: To Be A Lover

A heady soul-reggae brew that only Lee “Scratch” Perry could concoct, George Faith’s To Be A Lover is a sweet and sultry dose of vintage R&B á la Upsetter. Released in 1977, it’s an undersung classic from the heyday of the Black Ark studio—eight cuts combining the velvet nonchalance of Faith’s voice with a group of reggae heavyweights working out tunes from the Stax, Motown, and Muscle Shoals songbooks.
