*** Lebrado's debut single "I'm Missin' You Babe" is an infectious dose of slick, funky pop/soul that created demand for a full length from this elastic-voiced tenor and finally we have one. The song was written and produced by Mr. Stand Up In It Theodis Ealey along with Bruce Billups and Gregory P. Jones. Fans of mainstream R & B, Kenny Lattimore and perhaps Sir Charles Jones should be the first to dig the remaining 11 tracks (including a remix of "Missin' You Babe"). While none of the cuts match the single, others with potential include "Coffee" which "milks" a coffee/black woman metaphor for all it's worth. Hey, songs praising the virtues of black women are always welcome. "She said: 'Lebrado, can I cook you tea?' I said, 'Tea is cool but it ain't for me.' She said, 'Lebrado how you like your coffee?' And I said, 'Hot, black and always lovin' on me!'". What would a Southern Soul disc be without a steppin' groove? The smooth "Dancin'" fills that role. "Try Me", "Meditation" and "Can't Sleep" are the melodic late night ballads while "Blacksand" is a pretty good dancer. This album serves it's purpose in showcasing Lebrado's vocals but it's about 1 or 2 good songs shy of the breakthrough he needs and the unimaginative production lacks variety. Still, you can be sure you'll be hearing more from this talented singer.
