Irreplaceable is a studio album by American musician George Benson. It's fun to
see him trying to stay in the post-millennial urban groove hip with some of the
younger generation's top songwriter/producers like Joshua Thompson (who's
produced for O-Town, Aretha Franklin, and Babyface) and Joe. Those who wish he'd
remember his prowess as a jazz guitarist have to content themselves with its
general background capacity behind pleasant romantic vocal textures and easy
grooving hip-hop shuffle grooves. Fortunately, Benson's in particularly fine
voice, and most of the hooks are catchy from the get go. Conceptually, the best
tunes are "Six Play" (which we soon realize is a love song to his six-string)
and "Cell Phone," which postulates the idea that God and our late loved ones are
accessible by wireless. There are a few stylistic deviations from the basic cool
formula here, most notably the gospel-tinged "Whole Man," and the lush, gently
exotic, flamenco-flavored soul tune "Strings of Love." The hope is that Benson's
collaborations with the hipsters will expose his legendary talents to the kids
who might otherwise shy away from the charms of an elder statesman.
Recorded on 180g heavy-weight vinyl to ensure quality sound, packaged in
gatefold cover, and covered by premium protective vinyl outer sleeve.
The 'Play 33 1/3 LP Series' is a 1st LP issue project of the masterpiece albums
which have never been released on vinyl LP. The album cover and package created
after months of graphic work and processes by hand enhanced its excellence and
to ensure the records superb sound quality, the German MMP, who undertook the
record production of EMI Germany and Universal, utilized a heavy weight 180g
vinyl LP to contain the sound. Khiov who was in charge of the planning and
production of many LP miniature series took charge of the album cover production
spending 6 months to create a masterpiece. You will have a chance to experience
great analogue sounds and to enjoy splendid artworks through the series.
This project was highly scrutinized passing rigid testing at the factory in
Germany. Even the performers themselves had not been able to put their hands on
the LP version of their own albums as their home country had not produced them.
The LPs produced by this project certainly have become must-have items by LP
lovers all around the world.
In the age where faster and more convenient is thought to be better, the
increase in demand for the retro vinyl LP worldwide is clearly attributed to the
satisfaction from the sound offered by analog products impossible to be
replicated by CD and digital products and the delight of touching, feeling, and
possessing this masterpiece-like large artwork. Furthermore, LP records have
both rarity and history that increase their value over time and serve as an
attractive factor for collectors.
