Limited Edition Reissue Of Super Rare 1975 Soul Album On Vinyl LP!
Japan Record Day 2019 Release!

A masterpiece of 1970s soul featuring the classic song ''Standing In The Way'' is finally repressed on vinyl.

In 1975, Charles Williams, a soul singer from the US who lived in Scandinavia and Finland, released the album Love Is A Very Special Thing. Despite being a ''phantom'' work that was recorded in Finland, Sweden and the United States and released in Finland ''only'', it is a wonderful piece of funk, soul and acoustic groove with high musicality. The LP's most famous mellow soul song, "Standing In The Way'', has a special shine; it's a true masterpiece. The album also includes ''Change It'' and the thrilling instrumental, ''Theme From Long Road''.

This special high-quality vinyl reissue for Japan Record Day 2019 includes an OBI strip.
