4.0 out of 5 stars MH-What where you thinking???, 2 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Slingshot (Audio CD)
This is a farly typical RnB album for 1981 made exceptional by Mr.Henderson displaying his budgie-smugglers on the cover!Oh dear, oh dear! In hindsight I would suspect there might be regrets about this choice of photograph but it certainly made me chuckle.I cannot believe US reviewers ignore this cover.It's a classic.
To the music: tracks 1 and 6 are quite dated funky synth hand clap led stompers typical of the post disco music at the time.Track 7 offers a slightly more appealing approach which stands the test as a club dancer a bit better. The rest of the set is ballad led which I presume was the thinking behing a 'sexy??' cover.Track 5 is a curious cover of the Walker Brothers 'Take It Easy On Yourself' which to be honest does little to alter the arrangement of the original which begs the question why include it? The addition of Phyllis Hyman assisting on vocals always ups the stakes in my opinion. For the pleasant ballads, Phyllis and the Speedos I have given an additional star.Not really a bad album for its time!
