Change Of Pace Bring My Buddies Back

Great to see this album reissued - originally recorded for the Stonelady label back in 1971 at the height of the Vietnam War:

A wonderful bit of harmony soul from the east coast -- a record with exactly the kind of fragile emotion and personal depth you might guess from the cover! Change Of Pace are a group with a sound that's a bit like some of their contemporaries on the scene -- but they've also got a slightly different approach too -- one that's not just heartbreaking ballads and love songs, but which also has a somewhat righteous undercurrent. Social themes intertwine with more personal agendas in the tunes -- making for some great lyrical interplay that comes off in a unique way. Backings are mostly gentle -- save for a few slightly more upbeat numbers -- and titles include "Bring My Buddies Back", "Our Forefathers", "When You Look Into The Mirror", "Blood's Much Thicker Than Water", "Yuletide Love", and "Hello Darling". Dusty Groove


  1. this is unreal i'am one of the members of change of pace, i never dreamed that our record was even still around, thanks for keeping us alive. we didn't have the career we hoped for, so it's good to know that there is someone who likes our songs out there

      I am glad you finally got some recognition. I was a personal friend to Doug Green, and I am and will always be a loyal fan.
      God bless
