Ned Doheny's Hard Candy, originally released in 1976, is widely considered the finest blue-eyed soul album of all time. Perhaps most famously, this impeccably smooth set features the timeless "Get It Up For Love", a wonderful example of mid-'70s mid-tempo white-(hot)-funk. It also includes Doheny's version of "Love Of Your Own", co-written with Average White Band's Hamish Stuart and also recorded with AWB the same year.
Produced by the legendary Steve Cropper, Hard Candy featured a veritable who's-who of the Laurel Canyon soft-yacht sound (JD Souther, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, the entire horn section for Tower of Power) yet bombed mysteriously. It's been a cult record since.
2019 repress features the original artwork for both jacket and full color inner sleeve. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
If you love '70s pop but are tired of hearing the same radio staples for the millionth time, discover the '70s all over again with Hard Candy.
