Back in the day (1982) Jazz-Funk was all around, but it ended up being binned as 'musak' and appears to have been scrubbed out of the musical history of the time.
This album has 3 fabulous singles and lots of very good tracks. It has been scrubbed up by Dutton Vocalion and sounds great.
It's good-time music that needs to be taken for what it is - we all need cheering up sometimes. After the passing of over 30 years(?!) it deserves to come back out of the shadows.
My personal opinion of the above reviewers thoughts is that he/she bought the CD on a whim and hated it and now spreads the hate to every person who reads it. Not fair really. Obviously hasn't heard of constructive criticism!
The album was the start of Shakatak's more poppie direction but still has some good hits like "Nightbirds" and "easier said than done" even if the lead funky sound was lost somewhere it's disco/funk/pop grooves still appeal and offers an alternative to the popular (yes they were popular) Drivin' Hard.
Not to discredit this album but if you want towards the best of Shakatak get Drivin' Hard and consider this one for the few good hits on there.
