This is as good as funk gets, I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.
The Jam & Lewis classic "You are my melody" still sounds as good as it ever did. "Let's go together" is a good choice for the albums finale. I would've loved to have seen "Mutual Attraction" & "Oh what a feeling" on this collection, but you really cannot argue with the choices. Class stuff indeed
Remember first hearing A Lover's Holiday at The Warehouse in Leeds and it just blew me away.
Other great tracks include Paradise - (who can resist dancing to this.) The Very Best In You, Change of Heart, Let's Go Togther.
Shows how Change changed from the initial album to the last. A must for all Change fans, only disappointment is the fab track Angel In My Pocket is not included. Buy it and I dare you to keep still.
It all started in Italy in 1979 when the Guadeloupe born businessman and (executive) producer Jacques Fred Petrus (1949-1987) and his closest companion, the Italian mastermind musician Mauro Malavasi, decided to launch a new band after working together a couple of years (formed Goody Music Records around 1975). They decided to call their new project Change and released the debut album in 1980. The album became highly successful including five Grammy awards.
Right from the start Change was a merge between Europe and U.S.A. as Petrus and Malavasi used Italian musicians (Mauro Malavasi, Davide Romani and Paulo Gianolio among others) and American vocalists (Luther Vandross, Diva Gray and later James "Crabs" Robinson and Timmy Allen for example). It was the efforts of Luther Vandross on the debut album that made him one of the biggest names in soul music a couple of years later.
From the beginning Change was just a studio concept though, with several "Change" touring around America, but in 82 they got a more solid band structure. A studio concept or not Change made some really strong albums between 1980-1984 but after a poor release in 1985 they split up and Change was history. Jacques Fred Petrus was sadly murdered in 1987 at his home in his native country of Guadeloupe after an argument outside his club in Saint-Anne that got out of hand.Read more ›
