The late Robert Palmer as a solo artist is surely the Orson Welles of blue-eyed soul/funk. He started his solo career with this album and although there were isolated highspots on subsequent albums I don't think he ever attained such heights again. I'm sure he appreciated the fame and wealth that "Addicted To Love" et al brought him, but musically this is his finest achievement.

From the opening 'medley' of Sailing Shoes/Hey Julia/Sneakin' Sally Thru The Alley" to the occasional Dr John type weirdness of closer "Through It All There's You" the album is consistently fine, with the playing of various members of Little Feat and The Meters giving it a funky, soulful authenticity. There are times when you can understand why Palmer was being seriously considered as Lowell George's replacement as Little Feat vocalist.

I bought this on vinyl when I was about 15. It was one of those happy accidents where you buy a record on instinct and it turns out to be one that you enjoy for the rest of your life.

I'm so glad I've finally managed to find it on CD. My only gripes are that there are no expanded sleevenotes detailing exactly who played what and where, and that there isn't an expanded version available as I'm sure the sessions must have produced much more memorable music.

This is the debut album from Robert Palmer and its brilliant. His successful 80's albums are not a touch on this. Don't get me wrong I like Riptide, but this is in a different league.

With members of The Meters and Little Feat backing him, this album is really tight. It would have been quite something to see these guys live. The material is a mixture of originals and two classics by the great New Orleans musician and producer Allen Toussaint. These are the title track and "From a Whisper to a Scream". Palmers vocals are as smooth as you would expect and unlike much material from the early 70's this doesn't date.

This album and Pressure Drop (Palmers 2nd I believe) are both well worth getting. Robert Palmer changed styles throughout his career but never matched these two early classics.

If ever a white non-us-resident artist can be called a true funkster, than it's robert palmer with his debut-album. Unfortunately the album didn't quite succeed, but nonetheless this was a great effort of pickin' up black music and using it for white pop sounds. Of course the rhythm section - contributed by members of the meters and little feat - provided solid ground for palmer to prove his ability to sing in a true new orleans-funk manner, but what this album at least proves: he'd never been as good as that again. Buy it, listen to it, groove to it, make love to it - but whatever you're gonna do, remember: it sure is funky!

I came late to Robert Palmer's music, even though I was around and listening to all sorts before he ever appeared on the scene. I came late: around 'Looking For Clues', and liked it, though was not bowled over by it (it was a time when you could buy pirate cassettes at London Bridge station for a couple of ££s, a cheap way of reviewing records that were of interest!).

I clearly remember my local record dealer talking of his liking for RP's early stuff, rather than the 'electronic' music of 'Clues' and other records of then and later.

I didn't take a lot of notice and ignored his musings.

And now? Directly because of the reviews I have been able to read on the Amazon site, I have bought and now listened to both this CD and 'Pressure Drop', and am SO happy to have discovered some true gems of blue-eyed soulful funk in these two CDs. It's GREAT music! And I know they will be included amongst my favourite albums.

Probably Robert Palmer's finest album since leaving Vinegar Joe and Elkie behind. Little Feat drums and bass. Powerful and funky. Lowell George also wrote a couple of tracks on here.
