Product Description

As part of BGP's reissue series of the Portland-raised, LA-based funk group Pleasure we release their fourth album Get To The Feeling . It follows BGP's successful and critically-acclaimed issue of their first three titles that includes the all-time funk classic, 'Joyous'. Produced as before by former Crusaders trombonist Wayne Henderson, the album continues the band's exploration of jazz-tinged funkiness, and radio-friendly soul. It features the club favourites 'Celebrate The Good Times' and 'Get To The Feeling' as well as the wonderful jazz groove of 'No Matter What'. Remastered from original tapes, this is issued in the BGP jazz and funk classics series at mid-price. It features original artwork and a brand new sleeve note by project supervisor Dean Rudland.

Pleasure are one of the more underrated self-contained bands from the Golden Age
of Black Music. Instrumentally Pleasure were on a par with Earth, Wind and Fire
but lacked the distinctive vocals of a Philip Bailey. The Jazz component in their music was also heavier than most of their contemporaries. These factors probably limited their commercial success at the time. Subsequently, Pleasure's back catalogue was rediscovered by rare groove DJs and their music became much sampled.
BGP are now doing justice to the Pleasure legacy with a steady reissue programme. The album, their fourth, kicks off in fine style with 'Celebrate The Good Things'- it's opening brass stabs lifted by Jazzie B for Soul II Soul's 'Jazzie's Groove'. 'Foxy Lady' is driven along by Nathaniel Philips' glorious slapped bassline. 'Ladies Night Out' is more mellow with jazzy horns and sweeping strings. The title track adds a bit of rock guitar to the mix but without diluting the signature soulfully jazzy sound. 'Thanks For Everything' is the funkiest track on display with echoes of Kool & The Gang's classic 'Hollywood Swinging'. If you want to dig a bit deeper into mid to late 70s Soul this CD is a good place to start your listening 'Pleasure'.

HASH(0x9a9aaa08) out of 5 stars Finally....on cd!! 14 Aug. 2012

Thanks BGP! Get To The Feeling is top notch soul/funk from the multi-talented Portland, OR band. The remastering sounds good but could have been better. Now that this title is out, hopefully the albums Future Now and Special Things will soon follow on cd.

Not the best but ok. There are other albums of this artist that are worth getting. If you like R & B buy this one.

By Calvin B. Miles - Published on

One of the last efforts by a band that should have gotten more air play than they did, This holds true especially now given the lack of true cross over jazz/ R&B music that is permeating the clubs and airwaves.Coming out of Portland, Oregon. This band deserves better treatment. If DJ's can't put these cuts in the mix and keep customers on the dance floor then may-hap they need to find work in another industry. Enuff said.

BGP FUNK & JAZZ CLASSICS has done a Stellar job at not just re-releasing Overlooked Classics. These releases include in depth liner notes as well as a Superb Remastering. Get To The Feeling...released in 1978, is very much a product of its time (In a good way). Several stellar party anthems, with Nathaniel Phillips laying down a major Funk Foundation. Produced by Wayne Henderson of the Jazz Crusaders.

By D. A. Billins - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been looking for this on CD for quite some time now. Pleasure was one of the most under rated groups of the 70s/80s! I absolutely LOVED this album when it was out. Ladies Night Out, Happiness, and Your Love Means Life were my CUTS...but just about the entire album was tight.
