Terry Callier turned up the heat on 1979's Turn You to Love on each of the nine songs that comprise the album many critics hail as his best kept secret. "Sign of the Times" opens with wonderfully dated funk built on a foundation of slick disco-era production replete with a buttery fretless bass, a strategically placed wah-wah guitar, analogue synths and gospel-inspired vocals. "Pyramids of Love" is a slow jam recalling the sultry moods of 1973's What Color Is Love (albeit without all the folk-jazz trimmings of that seminal record). Callier's hard grooving cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again" trumps the original in much the same way that the Isley Brothers' version of "Ohio" blows away CSN&Y's. Similarly, he turns Smokey Robinson's "Still Water (Love)" into a wide-lapelled mood-setting masterpiece of R&B with a twist of smooth jazz in the brass. "You and Me (Will Always Be In Love)" sounds like it was produced in an anti-gravity chamber as every element of the song hovers with lilting grace, especially the floating string section, the backing vocals reminiscent of The Fifth Dimension and of course, Callier's breezy singing.
