I did a similar thing recently with a recent vinyl listening session. I came across a couple of Gino Vanelli albums that were purchased as cutouts years ago - 'Brother to Brother' and 'Pauper in Paradise'. At the time I played the crap out of them as I was just beginning to explore jazz and came across Gino's work, not particularly for his vocals but for the interesting jazz/pop/fusion layering of his sound. Much more substance to his music other than the single "I Just Want to Stop" For example, side 2 of 'Pauper in Paradise' (the title track) is a 4 movement piece recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Great stuff.
