As far as I’m aware this is the only disc by West Coast singer Billy Nitro. A long time cult deep item it’s value has risen as more and more people have become aware of it’s existence. And no wonder as it’s a very fine record indeed. I think the chord structure of As Sweet As Your Love For Me is right in the pocket and the arrangement, particularly the horns and the guitarist (Arthur “Sleepy” Wright?), fits the mood perfectly. Billy’s vocal may not be the grittiest but his sense of timing is spot on and he invests the lyric with real feeling. What more could you ask for?
