Erica Campbell: ‘Help’ album review

Goodness, Help is good. Erica Campbell, one-half of platinum-selling sister act Mary Mary, flies the coop to create a solo record of epic gospel proportions. Compared to the slick R&B-pop production of her familial discography, live instrumentation is Campbell’s calling card. Consummately produced by hubby Warryn Campbell (Alicia Keys), live handclaps, chiming Wurlitzers, weepy strings, front porch harmonica, Motown backbeats and the singer’s authentic gospel growl create an absolutely irresistible throwback tracklist. Add straight-up revival verses and Help is set to enamor urban music history.
