For a brief spell in the 1970s, Gordon Grody looked like he might become a genuine blue-eyed soul sensation. While he never quite had the success he arguably deserved, his 1977 debut album Exclusively Yours remains something of an overlooked classic. The two tracks featured on this tasty Expansions 7" are both taken from that set, and see him adding his impassioned, honeyed vocals to backing tracks that sit somewhere between Philly soul and New York disco. Of the two, it's the punchy, floor-friendly "Exclusively Yours" that's our pick, though the more sugary, sumptuous flipside, "After Loving You" is almost as good.
