Editorial Reviews


Public Announcement have replaced [R. Kelly] with Felony Davis, who convincingly mimics Kelly on several tracks.... Unfortunately, the bulk of All Work is a generic mix of heartfelt slow jams and corn-fed ballads. -- Entertainment Weekly

Product Description

Their first album with Felony Davis as vocalist (replacing R Kelly) with guests Shaquille O'Neal, Roger Troutman, Soul Children Of Chicago, Rufus Blaq and Walt Whitman.

Great CD.......In my book it is #5 star CD .....It seems unfair that R-Kelly got all the credit when he first started out and then just dumped the group that made him a superstar. P.A. is great, but needed more 'promotion' to show the 'world' where R-Kelly came from!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very talented group!!!! May 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first listen to All Work/No Play I was amazed. The beats were tha bomb. And all of the songs on the CD was very interesting and it got my attention instantly. The music made you listen to the words and not just focus on the beats. I listen to the CD everyday or whenever I have the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Worked Up May 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Public Announcement is the group that played the background for R. Kelly's debut and this is their first coming titled All Work, No Play. It's hard to seperate the fact that they are a group all their own, but after listening to their debut it sounds as if R. Kelly is still present in "Body Bumpin' (Yippie-Yi-Yo)" and "Turn The Hands" just for starters. "It's About Time" has the same one, two kick arrangements but has a fuller, soulful chorus involved. Public Announcement is lead by writer Felony Davis and mostly produced by member Earl Robinson as they take control with many subjects and angles to make this release complete. As sexy and heartfelt as some of the titles are the title track gives an example of their talents. The release hit a high note with the "Body Bumpin' (Yippie-Yi-Yo) - R&B Remix" featuring Mingo Valentino and "Alone" for a more up tempo selection worth checking out. "Homey", a personal favoriate, that resembles a Isley Brothers tune with its guitar solo is what places this album in the elite of great albums. You couldn't have a Chicago release without a stepping song as "Y To The Yippie (Step On)" released before R. Kelly made it popular! P.A. also pays their respects to classic r&b with the remake to "Straight From The Heart". All Work, No Play has everything including desert for a full course meal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feloney is 2-cold 2 start on "Turn The Hands" May 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Fel has made PA a force 2 be delt with!! I've known the brotha since high school (Gage Park). He and his sister sang in our high school talent show, and they blew it away!! I felt he would persue this and make a name 4 himself. I can't express how proud I am of this man. I've started a small production Co. of my own, it's called "Songs By Matthe'". Although he writes himself, I would hope to produce to the group a song of my own. Keep on giving it 2 them bro, it's your world. GOD BLESS. (312)295-3346 W/VOICE.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome cd!! June 12, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I just bought this CD today and I have probably listened to it 5 times. This is an all around good CD and I would suggest that everyone who's an R&B fan to buy it also. All of their songs are just great songs. One day I just accidently came across their CD at an online music store, I listened to a few songs and knew I had to get it. I highly recommend this CD to everyone, and if I could I'd give it 6 stars instead of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice CD July 28, 2003
By Erica
Format:Audio CD
This CD is off the chain. I listen to this CD all the time. At first I didn't think I would like the CD, but after I had listened to the CD I liked it. If u like listening to slow music then u would like this CD. If u don't have it then u should go out and get it cus its off the chain.

5.0 out of 5 stars This group does not get it's proper respect. April 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have the cassette.Was looking for the ALL WORK NO PLAY Public announcement CD. Of course Itunes didn't even have this one. On to Amazon. The prices were extremely high. Scrolling down. Found one in my price range. The CD arrive brand freaking new with the wrapping, the plastic strips you pull from the top of it and they still make my heart flutter from back in the day. PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT yes yes yes!! I finally found the CD I was looking for!

2.0 out of 5 stars boring smooth soul
Sorry people, but I found this album extremely boring. A smooth boring soul album with smooth boring songs and a smooth voice that doesn't stick out.
