2. I Don't Know If It's Right. 3. Till I Come Off The Road. Evelyn "Champagne" King. Smooth Talk ‎(LP, Album).

Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King, one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/arranger T Life! The sound here is upbeat and catchy, but never too poppy, done with a slight hint of that groove that King would hit more famously in the 80s, but served up here with a deeper sense of warmth, and a slightly more laidback feel. King is classy without being cloying – just like a sip of the right sort of champagne – and T Life’s backings often have a slight undercurrent of funk. Smooth Talk made R&B and Pop as well as achieving gold certification and spending a year on the album charts.
