"Lovin' Mighty Fire" is Howard Williams' third Japanese music compilation. This new outing searches for the soul music of Japan, from the early 70s to the early 80s. Japan has long been known as the final destination for many a collectible soul record. Yet, who suspected that some fine soul grooves were recorded for the domestic market, from ballads, to funk and disco? The bluesy funk of Lily; the soul-diva brilliance of Minako Yoshida - represented here in both slow-grind mode and epic disco. This album finally plants a Japanese flag firmly on the global map of soul.
