As part of BGP's reissue series of the Portland-raised, LA-based funk group Pleasure we release their fourth album Get To The Feeling . It follows BGP's successful and critically-acclaimed issue of their first three titles that includes the all-time funk classic, 'Joyous'. Produced as before by former Crusaders trombonist Wayne Henderson, the album continues the band's exploration of jazz-tinged funkiness, and radio-friendly soul. It features the club favourites 'Celebrate The Good Times' and 'Get To The Feeling' as well as the wonderful jazz groove of 'No Matter What'. Remastered from original tapes, this is issued in the BGP jazz and funk classics series at mid-price. It features original artwork and a brand new sleeve note by project supervisor Dean Rudland.
Top customer reviews
of Black Music. Instrumentally Pleasure were on a par with Earth, Wind and Fire
but lacked the distinctive vocals of a Philip Bailey. The Jazz component in their music was also heavier than most of their contemporaries. These factors probably limited their commercial success at the time. Subsequently, Pleasure's back catalogue was rediscovered by rare groove DJs and their music became much sampled.
BGP are now doing justice to the Pleasure legacy with a steady reissue programme. The album, their fourth, kicks off in fine style with 'Celebrate The Good Things'- it's opening brass stabs lifted by Jazzie B for Soul II Soul's 'Jazzie's Groove'. 'Foxy Lady' is driven along by Nathaniel Philips' glorious slapped bassline. 'Ladies Night Out' is more mellow with jazzy horns and sweeping strings. The title track adds a bit of rock guitar to the mix but without diluting the signature soulfully jazzy sound. 'Thanks For Everything' is the funkiest track on display with echoes of Kool & The Gang's classic 'Hollywood Swinging'. If you want to dig a bit deeper into mid to late 70s Soul this CD is a good place to start your listening 'Pleasure'.

The thing that I love about R&b in the 70s is that there was a great mix of Jazz- Rock and Funk !
