Product description

Product Description

Kwick were Vince Ricari Williams, Terry Bartlett, William Sumlin and Bertram Brown from Memphis, Tennesse. Prior to Vince joining the group they were known as The Newcomers and worked at Stax Records offering both studio and live support. They also had a hit single in 1971 with Pin The Tail On The Donkey . Their heroes were The Barkays who inspired them to continue their career and reform as Kwick after the demise of Stax. Kwick and To The Point were recorded for EMI America records in 1980 and 1981 respectively. They stayed in Memphis for these sessions and worked with producer Allen Jones, frequently credited with producing The Barkays having also worked consistently at Stax/Volt Records. Strings and horns are arranged and conducted by Grammy nominated Carl Marsh who is similarly credited on such original soul classics as Sittin On the Dock Of The Bay , In the Midnight Hour , Knock On Wood and also worked for James Brown, The Temptations, Isaac Hayes and The Spinners. Nightlife is one of their most fondly remembered tunes with its funky boogie groove that some DJs used to spin at a slower speed, and the album track We re Saying Goodbye Again further motivation for Expansion to bring these two LPs together and release on CD for the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars KWICK, to copy other artists 6 Jun. 2015
By Musij - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
KWICK, KWICK...KWICK!!! What can I say about KWICK?!!! They were a pretty good group who made music by ripping off the sounds of other successful artists and kinda made them their own. I say, "kinda", because there's no way that you can separate the sound of the group that they emulate, from the song that they did. For example, their song, 'Let This Moment Be Forever', is so obviously "borrowed" heavily from Motown's last Super Group, SWITCH's song, 'There'll Never Be'. And without even thinking hard, you'll know their song, 'Serious Business', is pretty much a blatant rip off of the great Michael Jackson's, 'Working Day And Night'!!! And another one, 'You're The Star Of My Show', which sounds like, DeBarge, "Queen Of My Heart'!!!!! That being said, I still enjoy listening to these songs...ripped off though they may be, LOL!!! I'm happy that I added them to my collection!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Should be owned by funk fans everywhere. 12 Feb. 2016

First to get two on one is always worth it. Secondly, these are really good albums. The first one Kwick is honestly a bit better then To The Point. Every track on the self titled album is top notch and the follow up is strong but have a couple of tracks that just average. Overall individually, Kwick gets 5 stars and To The Point gets 4 stars, together it's a five star deal.

Great old school band that I hadn't heard of before. I'm introducing them to as many people that I know and even to the local old school radio station.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kwick-ness! 17 April 2013
By White Chocolate JAM! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Kwick was an Old School R&B unit from the very early 80's produced by Allen A. Jones (Bar Kays, Ebonee Webb.) A remarkable note on Jones' production values is that he would cop the hit sound(s) of the day" by slightly altering melodies or basslines and rewriting them to sound like any of the current bands who were riding the charts fairly high at this time with hits of their own.

"Nightcruising," a song by Bar Kays from an album of the same title, sounds very close to Rick James' "Give It To Me, Baby" and "Freaky Behavior," a further single from the same album, is anOTHER Rick James sound-a-like of his smash hit, "Super Freak." With Kwick, "I Want To Dance with You" closely resembles "Too Tight" by Con Funk Shun and "Shake 'Til Your Body Breaks," a direct cop of The Jacksons' "Shake Your Body Down to the Ground."

Although the Allen A. Jones trademark involves "copping" hit songs, the two albums which make up this twofer of a Funk unit which never truly received its due, exhibits a fresh, crisp, remastered sound courtesy of Expanison Records, U.K.

A further album entitled "Foreplay" boasted another seemingly "copped" single in "Stuck Up," which seems to have borrowed elements of Minneapolis Funk musings a la The Time and combined them with Midnight Star's hit, "No Parking on the Dancefloor" or Chocolate Milk's "Take It Off." If early 80's Funk is what you love and crave, check out this twofer with a "Kwick"-ness!
