5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best 3 Aug 2007
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best funk albums in my opinion. Chaka Khan was always at her best in this band, tending to go over the top too often as a soloist. The band is spot on and the recording still sounds fresh all these years later. It shows up the shallow cretins who attempt to perform this type of music against a background of pre-programmed music. In contrast, enjoy Tony Maiden's brilliant guitar playing and singing and the stockong arrangements. Not a duff track on the album. Get this and listen to the real stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Bliss 27 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm fast approaching my sixth decade on this planet and as a consequence I've been subjected to an ever increasing body of mediocrity, be it in, alas and sadly music or other.
This album was and never will be anything other than brilliant and even after all these years is still a comprehensively stand out piece of work. I still own the original vinyl copy and occasionally play it, cracks, hisses and all on the turntable. Wonderful to be re-acquainted with it in CD enhanced format. "Please Pardon Me" amongst some of the gems to be discovered if you're new to this work, or to relish once more if like me, you were here first time around. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars shooting the breeze 16 Jun 2013
By schumann_bg TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Rufusized is a brilliant album, surely one of the greatest ever recorded. The material is wonderfully supple and free, with constantly interesting harmonies and a fully-realised sound-world that seems to epitomise the era and its laid-back, life-affirming mood. The instrumental combinations and bass lines, the constant slight shifts in the rhythm and harmony, all create a universe that is completely absorbing and rejuvenating. As for Chaka Khan, she is amazing; right from her opening notes, plucked from the stratosphere in an improvisatory riff that seems to be saying 'here we go' - and we're strapped into some kind of rocket headed for a different atmosphere altogether, not just into the kind of Cadillac a lot of soul has to offer. The jazz inflections make this a much stranger, more unpredictable experience. Chaka's voice is one of the wonders of the modern world, it is so endlessly flexible and gliding around the notes and rhythms - she becomes the music, like a superbly malleable clay in the hands of an unseen creative force. The last two tracks, Please Pardon Me and Stop On By, are quite sublime. As if it were actually possible, the cover photo actually seems to capture some of the joy of this album - was there ever a more beautiful photo of a group of people caught in a moment of complete harmony without any formal set-up? And the back of the album has a photo of Chaka - printed inside the insert as well, where she kicks from an unmade bed - again, totally wonderful and in tune with the sublime music-making.
