Hall and Oates "Our Kind of Soul"

(U-Watch, 2004) Other than cover graphics that would be unacceptable on a thermal-printed lowrider CD-R insert, there is nothing wrong with this record of 70s and 80s soul covers, except I couldn't remember which songs I'd listened to it while still listening to it because it is so forgettable and unnecessary. These dudes made great R&B covers in the past, created remarkable original soul songs (a few OK ones are on this double LP), and sing and play fine on this, but it's so meh it makes their "Live at the Apollo" LP (with Kendricks and Ruffin) sound like James Brown's "Live at the Apollo."
