Peabo Byson - "Reaching For The Sky" 1977

It's December, and it is that time of the year when things start to get busy, so I am a little behind on my posting.  
Well this post is a little different than others, in that I am posting a great 'soul' LP, more aptly referred to as 'R&B'  these days.  The hit from this LP is "Feel The Fire", and can be found on other commercially available Peabo Bryson collections. However, there are so many other cuts from this LP that are well worth the listen.  Notably, PB's  "Hold On To The World", and the bluesy "Love Walked Out on Me" and of course the title track "Reaching For The Sky".  All eight tracks on this LP are Peabo original compositions.  This archive was made from the original LP that I purchased in 1977, and provided a nice workout for the 'ClickRepair' software utility and certainly showcases it's strengths.  Hope you enjoy!
