5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz-funk that will blow your head apart 31 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Pleasure in an old interview with Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay, which I came across online. In that interview, he called this 'the one CD I couldn't live without'. Whether you like Jamiroquai or not, most lovers of 'black music' who've read other such interviews would agree Jay has great taste in records. A couple of weeks later, entirely accidentally, I stumbled across it in a shop, and although it was [...] (I never normally pay full price for a CD), took a risk on it. Walking back to my flat I thought 'for thirteen quid this had better be good...' Got home, put CD in player, pressed play... and my head exploded.

Pleasure supported a number of much more well-known bands, among them Tower Of Power, during the '70s, and frankly if you'd been to see any of those bands I think you'd have been rather cheesed off that they were outshone by their support act. Pleasure are the ultimate dream for all lovers of soulful and funky music - they're jazz musicians, playing funk. This is jazz-funk before Incognito gave that name to their debut album. If you're a lover of acid jazz, you'll dig it. If you're a lover of soul, funk, rare groove or just about anything danceable, you'll dig it.

Best tracks in my opinion are 'Foxy Lady' (nothing to do with the Hendrix song), 'Glide', 'Ghettoes Of The Mind' (in spite of the rubbish title), and above all, the most feelgood song I've ever heard, 'Joyous', which hip-hop fans will recognise as the backing track to Sugarhill Gang's '9 To 5'. There's so much to discover in this music, with well over an hour on the disc. It's hard work tracking down more of the band's back catalogue, but once you've heard this you, like me, will want to try, and you'll be richly rewarded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype.. 19 July 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because of a review I read on Amazon and was thoroughly disappointed. It's an average album from an average band.... maybe I'm not being fair as this is the only record of theirs I have heard however I was expecting big things and they just didn't do it for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasure-Greatest Hits 25 Feb 2006
By V. Ball - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Glide is on here way too many times. Best hits is a better choice. The song "Living Without You ", is on The "Special Things", album. It has a solid red album jacket with "Pleasure" written in cursive across the front of it. I do not believe it is available on cd. Pleasure is surely one of the best bands of it's era.
