4.0 out of 5 stars First album from the fiesty foursome.... 24 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the first album from Mary Jane Girls, and is really their best (of only two though!)
Mary Jane Girls were the protegee group of funk artist Rick James, and must have been an influence on future bold pop ladies such as Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul.
Featuring the hit singles Candy Man, All Night Long (covered by Mary J. Blige in 1995) and Boys, as well as the luscious ballads, Musicial Love and On The Inside.
Their sexually charged lyrics were well before other prominent Female pop artists, and you should check out this CD to see what the 80's were REALL about!

4.0 out of 5 stars The MJG's 20 May 2003
By Armando M. Mesa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Before En Vogue, Jade, or TLC or even Destiny's Child there was The Mary Jane Girls. A Rick James' all girl group production. Turns out these gorgeous ladies had plenty of talent and substance to prove they were artists and not just sexy album cover models. Each lady came complete with their on onstage personas; the classy dame, the tomboy, the preppy, and the dominatrix/leather queen. ...Listen to track You Are My Heaven and the harmonizing these ladies could do gets no better than this ! The classic jam All Night Long with it's light jazz influence and seductive vocals can complete any hot summer night.The uptempo dance tunes may sound a bit dated but still carry some weight after all these years with the thumping funk sound provided by James and his Stone City Band. Maybe a couple of tracks are just a bit candy coated or quirky but after all for 1983 it was something very hip. This is good stuff that deserves quite a few listens !...

The Mary Jane Girls handle their own on this set.despite The fact the Funk Genius of Rick James is stamped all over here He wrote,arranged,Produced&Played on their albums they still have their own Idenity.this debut was the bomb back in the day and still sounds tight.who&there Mother hasn't sampled All Night Long? the grooves are Slammin.Rick James is very Underrated.a true Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Debut Of The MJG's 6 July 2007
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Mary Jane Girls made their recorded debut in 1983,produced and written by Rick James when he was enjoying success with his 'Coldblooded' album and these ladies really took full advantage of Rick just as he hit his absolute peak.Nothing against Prince but 'Mary Jane Girls' couldn't be any more different then Prince's Vanity 6 project of around the same time.To start with Rick James provides the quartet with the same (sometimes better) funk that he himself specialized in,filled with bubbly bass,howling horns and great drumming from the Stone City Band.And the MJG's are also great,powerful singers who pull no punches vocally or lyrically.The have a lot of fun singing together or lead and they have a major asset in the sassy and powerful JoJo,who styled her hair like Rick James and could've easily made even duetted with him here on the hardcore funk of "Prove It",where she also contributes a confidant rap in the bridge.One thing these gals can do that too many girl groups of the early 80's had trouble with was REALLY WORK the ballads with "You Are My Heaven" and the passionate closer "Musical Love" both being in that vein AND the some of the best songs here!If course if lean,mean "naked funk" is the name of your game your probably going to go right to the catchy "Candy Man","Boys" or the classic "All Night Long". While the Mary Jane Girls only recorded two albums (the second Only Four You out of print despite containing their biggest hit "In My House") you will have to get either this or their Greatest Hit's package.I recommend this because it's an extremely consistant and well done album,especially considering the singles oriented "girl group funk" genre it's supposed to be a part of so it's doubly more then worth listening to.

4.0 out of 5 stars good party album!! 6 Mar 2010
By Sean Grogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you like Rick James, you'll love this one. It's the female version of Rick James, literally. Some great party tracks, including the classic, Candy Man. A really tight debut album. Raw, funky, and fun. Not everything on here is a single, but it all has its place. Mary Jane Girls had some good stuff after this, like In My House, but this is their best album as a whole. If you're a casual fan, you might want to get the greatest hits record, which has some cool 12" versions. If you're into Rick James though, this is a good album to get.
