Review

Limited vinyl reissue of the ultra-rare promo-only 12″ version of this perfect summer anthem from soul icon Leon Ware and jazz vocalist and Manhattan Transfer founder member Janis Siegel, an inspired collaboration from 1982 which has more than proved the test of time with this 12″ version highly sought after and near impossible to find in the original. A gorgeous breezy jazz-funk/soul masterpiece with the smoothest vocal performances and super-slick production, the A-side ‘Why I Came To California’ is the go-to track but the B-side is fantastic in its own right, a funky bass-driven workout topped with Leon Ware’s dreamy sensual voice. Beautiful stuff - an essential addition to any self-respecting record box.
