wee You Can Fly On My Aeroplane (CD, £12.50)label: Asterisk
The second in a trilogy of Columbus, Ohio soul-funk albums to be issued on Asterisk comes from the twisted pen and mind of Norman Whiteside. His lone album, under the pseudonym Wee, is firmly ensconced in ‘Innervisions’-era Stevie Wonder, with nary a trace of his work as a writer for Bill Moss’ Capsoul label a few years prior. Smooth, sexy, and synthy, this is a peerless sprawling psychedelic soul concept album. The original nine song LP has been expanded to 19, including seven previously unreleased panty soakers. Lovers rejoice.
