Tavares: Sky-High! [Capitol, 1976]
In the tradition of the produced group, they make hit singles, not albums, and In the City was apparently a fluke. This time they've switched to Freddie Perren, whose affinity for the transcendantly awkward lyric, best represented on the Miracles' City of Angels, here produces such gems as "The mighty power of love/It's got more force than any shove" and "Son you gotta give a heck/You gotta promise to give respect." Three fine tunes, four or five drecky ones.
