Description

Nice And Slow was Green's debut solo album and was released on the EMI record label in 1976 to high acclaim, despite not garnering the commercial success the album deserved. As was the burgeoning trend at the time Green appropriated the fledgling Disco and Soul sounds of the mid 70's and scored a massive club hit with the albums title track and opener which reached #1 on the U.S. Disco charts and #17 on the U.K. Pop charts. The second single from the album Flip followed Nice And Slow on to the dance floor peaking at #17 on the Disco chart in 1977. Both tracks have a sultry sweet soul sound on top of a solid bottom end groove. Green's Jamaican roots are still very much in evidence on the album, especially on Flip and album track You Came, You Saw, You Conquered which both exemplify the singers spirited vocal style. Other highlights are the ballad The Greatest Love and the superb You Are The Star, a propulsive, jazz influenced groove. During the 60's Green sang vocals with Jamaican band The Pioneers and in the 70''s toured internationally with the great Jimmy Cliff as his drummer before embarking on a solo career in 1976.
