Rags To Rufus

LP (Item 27871) ABC, 1974 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A classic early album by Chaka Khan and the jazzy soul group Rufus – and the record that pushed them over the top, chartwise! The album features their huuuuuge hit "Tell Me Something Good", a simply incredible workout that was the perfect mainstream showcase for Chaka's great voice, made even better by the use of one of those cool Peter Frampton-vocoder thingies. The album also features some other excellent material that's a bit more restrained, and more in the band's usual jazz funk mode – like "Ain't Nothing But A Maybe", "You Got The Love", "Smokin Room", and "Sideways".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul!
