Silk was comprised of ex-Independents ("Leaving Me") Maurice Jackson and Aaron "Eric" Thomas, along with Arthur Reid. If price was the barometer, this should be a great album by a great group — the nine tracks sell for 20 dollars discounted online, with their first single, "Party 1 & 2," at six minutes and 21 seconds, the longest. While not worthy of its inflated price, it's alright. David Porter (Isaac Hayes' old collaborator ["Soul Man"]) produced the LP in Jackson, MS, at Tommy Couch's renowned Malaco Studios with mostly Memphis musicians. Except for Porter's Southern jerker "Ain't No Need of Crying," Silk members wrote all the tunes, including jewel-case gems "I Know I Didn't Do You Wrong," which is sweet, gutty, and sincere, and "Let Him Go," which is lilting and passion-filled. And listeners won't skip past the LP's best dancer, "Give Yourself to Me," or the uplifting "Live While You Can."
