Product Description

Released in BGP's Jazz & Funk Classics series, Future Now was Pleasure s penultimate album for Fantasy Records. It saw the band experimenting with a new sci-fi influenced funk sound and gave them their biggest US hit Glide . The jazz funk influence of their mentor, ex-Crusader Wayne Henderson, who discovered them and took them to Fantasy is much less on this album, it being the first the Portland, Oregon funksters produced themselves. On Glide , Space Is The Place and the title track they created a slick contemporary sound. New notes on the album by Dean Rudland.

You Didn't Know !! 22 Feb. 2012
By Moonie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
This is a masterpiece ; easily their greatest work. If you're a funk fan, then I'm sure you know all about "Glide".But this album doesn't stop there, check out "Universal" (serious funk) "Space Must be The Place", or cool out with "Thought Of My Old Flames". The title track alone is worth the price of the album. Marlon McClain(guitar), Nathaniel Phillips(bass)and Bruce Carter(drums)are charter members of the Funk Hall of Fame.Buy this album if you never buy another !!!!!! P.S. If you are a musician, this album is a mandatory study.

Where's the guitar solo in Future Now? 24 Aug. 2013
By Funkstarr 03X21 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's about time this album was released on cd. This album is the reason I play Bass today. Sadly after listening to the first four minutes of the title song, Which Happens To Be My Favorite, I realized that blazing, funky mind blowing guitar solo was missing out of the recording. WHY? After waiting so long for this album, that was a big disappointment. However, I'm still happy someone took a shot at bringing this album to compact disc. this is still one the greatest pieces of work on the planet. Can't wait for Special Things.
This should be a five star 1 Mar. 2014
By Calvin B. Miles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The only reason it isn't is because of the drop off in sound quality. Especially where it concerns Marlon McClain's guitar works. They are just so tasty I don, t know how the remastering folks lost it unless, they were so busy grooving to the LP their fingers missed a few control switches. Jazz funk hitting it's stride yep that is what this disc represents. I used to try a teach folks why tracks like theirs was so important to the genre but in this case. Let me just put it like this R&B,DANCE MUSIC, Funk and or Jazz Never sounded so tasty without being categorized. This disc fits all these genres easily. You don't own this? REALLY? WOW !! Missing it you are.

Because it's a group that finally put it on CD. I've special ordered that cassette twice. A good friend of mine turned me on to this years ago. The reason I ordered 2 was to give him one for Christmas. Thank U guys.
