The cover of this one sports an image that's almost rockish – especially given that the "night birds" on the image are pterodactyls – but the sound is as smooth and jazzy as you'd expect from Shakatak at their best! The group were a leading light in 80s fusion, and with records like this it's easy hear why – thanks to well-played keyboards from Bill Sharpe – handled with a spaciously stepping groove that underscores the more soulful leanings of the group. There's a bit of vocals on the set, but the album's still mostly an instrumental affair – and titles include "Night Birds", "Easier Said Than Done", "Takin Off", "Light On My Life", "Bitch To The Boys", and "Streetwalkin".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Atlantic, 1975. Very Good-
The third album from Black Heat – and quite possibly the funkiest of the bunch – thanks to an even tighter sound than before, and lots of emphasis on the bottom of the groove! The group's got a few more members than before, but their sound is somehow even leaner – a really tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
