Quinn Harris – My Mother Said
Sometime between the late ’70s, when he recorded Statements, and the late ’80s, when My Mother Said was released, Quinn Harris lost his mojo.
I want to say that this LP isn’t all bad, I mean, it could possibly be of some interest to fans of cheesy, Christian modern soul, but to say that it doesn’t hold a candle to his work in the ’70s would be to suggest that Michael Jackson is looking a tad unusual of late. It could be the drum machine (which on a couple of track does manage to come up with some funky beats), or it could be Harris’s newfound inability to stay in tune. Or maybe it’s just the tepid, run-of-the-mill Christian lyrics, but whatever it is, Quinn most certainly fell off.
