This review is from: With Love (Audio CD)
'With Love' failed to gain a U.K release back in 1983. Even when 'I Found Lovin' was remixed and became a top 10 hit in 1984 the album remained 'in the can' this side of the atlantic. Listening to the album you can understand exactly why. Tracks like opener 'He's A Freak (Undercover)' and 'Wide Glide' are totally uninspired lyrically and amount to the kind of song Fatback all too often filled their albums with. Sure, both songs are funky in their own way but neither have the class, style, soul and groove of 'I Found Lovin' - a truly inspired song. 'Rasta Jam' is even worse, a 'funk meets reggae' groover it falls flat on its face and only goes to advertise how careless Fatback were when it came to writing material for their albums.

So, what else do you get bar 'I Found Lovin' (found here in only it's 7" mix 4min 10 secs) for your money?

Well, 'I Wanna Be Your Lover' may not be lyrical genius but it has class and is a nice mid-tempo groover with some good vocals and snyth fills. 'I Like Your Body Language' fits roughly the same mould but has more of a soul edge than funk and 'Please Stay' is a long, slow 'Is This The Future' styled rap with a hint of jazz and blues amidst the funk. All three are a worthwhile addition to your Fatback collection but, if you are specifically looking for dance floor funkers, there's nothing bar 'I Found Lovin' on this collection to make it worth a purchase.
