5.0 out of 5 stars this album i have never forgoten July 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When i first heard this music many year's ago, it left a lasting impression. i have not forgotten it. believe it or not, i was in love with a woman at the time. the day i walked away, i left this album on her door step. it was my only copy. i am new to this internet searching, for the hell of it, i looked this up. i was shocked when i found it. this man can sing with the best of them. for all the music that is offered today, very few artist's can really get to the inner soul of a song. if you want to hear a man sing a love song, i highly reccommend terry callier.

5.0 out of 5 stars This man is good! May 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was my first taste of Mr Terry Callier. I remember putting the CD on and being mesmorised for nearly 9 minutes listened to the majestic 'Dancing Girl'. This is a truly epic piece of music which takes you on a musical journey into the sublime. The CD is worth buying just for this one track.
Then comes another Terry Callier classic 'What Color is Love'. These two tracks have become 2 of Terry's most played during his musical pilgrimage around the world.
This man is a true talent, buy this CD and try to go and see him live. This CD will never leave your collection

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best Recording by TC December 28, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If you like Terry Callier (TC), then this is a "must have" CD. I have the original LP (released in the 1970's) and I've waited a long time hoping it would become available on CD. This CD exemplifies what the 1970's and folk/soul/R&B music were during that period. It also demonstrates the many talents of TC. From his acoustical guitar playing to his thought provoking lyrics. One of the true "great" singers/songwriters (along with Curtis Mayfield) of our time. Now waiting for the re-release of "Fire On Ice".

Thanks to the wonderful institution of Amazon's "Listmania" and my relentless search thereof for great 'lost' 60's and 70's rock, folk, country and soul music, I was recently helped into discovering this unique genre-bender of a classic album from Terry Callier. After researching him a bit, I found that this is one of his three most highly-recommended 70's albums, sandwiched in between 1972's Occasional Rain and 1975's I Just Can't Help Myself. Since What Color Is Love was the first I heard about, and has such a classic, evocative cover (yeah, occasionally you CAN judge an album by its cover art), I decided to pick it up first. What a great purchase--I can confidently recommend this album to fans of jazzier folk, more "out-there" folk that is influenced by more wide ranging musical styles than just American roots and blues, as well as more adventurous fans of R&B legends like Marvin Gaye and Al Green who don't mind if their soul is cut with a bit of folk and jazz.

The album opens with the spacey "Dancing Girl," in which Callier displays his novel combination of acoustic folk guitar with his soulful, yearning voice that seems to evoke all the best characteristics of 60's/70's black soul, but at the same time transcend the structural trappings of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars "....All Those Notes...Won't Take The Pain Away..." August 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD
At about 1:58 into the astonishing "Dancing Girl" (the opening nine-minute track of "What Color Is Love") it gets very quiet and the acoustic guitar holds the speakers alone - then Don Myrick's tasteful sax work floats in followed by keyboard flourishes and some wickedly arranged strings by Charles Stepney... The effect is absolutely magical...

And after you've put your jaw back into place, you're left standing there with a genuine incomprehension... how has something this lovely and genuinely soulful been forgotten? Why isn't this huge??

"What Color Is Love" was released on LP in March 1973 in the USA on Cadet CA 50019 and is the second of three albums Callier made for the Chess offshoot label Cadet in the Seventies - the first was "Occasional Rain" in 1972 (see separate review) and the third was "I Just Can't Help Myself" in 1975.

Both "What Color..." and "Occasional Rain" are part of Universal's "ORIGINALS" series - Jazz, Soul, Fusion and Latin LPs reissued and remastered onto CD from a multitude of labels under the Universal umbrella. All use generic artwork (the originals name and band on the left of the sleeve as pictured above) and are gatefold card digipaks issued at mid-price. Although the card digipaks are aesthetically pleasing as mini-repro LP sleeves, unfortunately most come without booklets - this album's recording credits on the inner flap for instance are barely legible. Which is a bummer because if ever an album deserved fresh liner notes, history, photos, a new interview - but alas...

The good news however is the beautiful remaster (40:44 minutes). The tape transfers for the whole series in general have been done in the late 2000's to superb standards by top engineers like Gavin Lurssen and Erick Labson - and in this case by KEVIN REEVES.
