The self-titled gatefold album by the band Creative Source released on L.A.’s own Sussex Records in 1973 is one of my favorite weekend picks. The record features the original version of ‘You Can’t Hide Love’ that Earth, Wind and Fire covered few years later and a stunning (almost) 12-minute long cover of Bill Withers’ classic track ‘Who Is He And What Is He To You’ (that’s also been famously sampled in LL Cool J’s ‘Phenomenon’). All around great record.
