Wee - You can fly on my aeroplane


The second in a trilogy of Columbus, Ohio soul albums to be issued on Numero’s Asterisk imprint 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, You Can Fly On My Aeroplane is a peerless sprawling psychedelic soul concept album; full of ‘70s excess and cocaine charm. Guitar phase, strong synth and slippery bass push Whiteside’s distinct tenor (and even stranger falsetto) afloat. It’s a rather fat reissue, too, including more "pheromone funk" outtakes and alternates than true album tracks. The original nine song LP has been expanded to nineteen, including seven previously unreleased panty soakers. Lovers rejoice.
