Editorial Reviews

Continuation is the first solo album which Earth Wind & Fire vocalist Philip Bailey made in 1983 for CBS. After the release of the album Electric Universe, EW&F took a break so Bailey had time to work on his solo career. The album was produced by George Duke and it features musical contributions from crème de la crème musicians such as Nathan East on bass, James Gadson and Ricky Lawson on Drums and Paulinho da Costa on percussion. George Duke himself plays the keyboards and the horn arrangements are from Jerry Hey & the Seawind horn selection. The background vocals are by Philip Bailey & George Duke and on "It's Our Time" Jeffrey Osborne is featured. The famous Sister Sledge is contributing on "Desire". Bailey sings here in his natural tenor instead of the falsetto he used to sing with Earth, Wind & Fire. The title "I Know" received reasonable good air- and club play but for the most part the record was ignored. "Vaya (Go with Love)" is the best ballad on the album. Other strong melodies are "The Good Guy's Supposed to Get the Girl" & "Your Boyfriend's Back.

This is an album that was over looked. He does a duet with Denise Williams called, "Our Time" that is awesome.
Along with the songs, "Trapped", "Your Boyfriends Back" and "Viya" are more songs that are equally great. If your a Phillip Bailey fan, then you want this CD. It's that simple.

I have the original Album, and I have the CD too. That tells you exactly how I feel about this project. It is a classic.

Format: Audio CD
I have waited the better part of 30 years for this to be issued on CD, and my purchase was well worth the wait. Sure, some of the up-tempo stuff sounds dated and very much of its MTV time. But damn...Philip Bailey, AND George Duke, AND Deneice Williams?!? Hard to quibble with that, unless that's just what you do...

By way of backstory, I had a chance meeting with Philip at the (now gone) Denver Stapleton Airport in 1983. I'd attended EWF's "Tour Of The World 1979" at The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia and it remains to this day the absolute best show I had ever seen them do. It remains to this day the best show I had ever seen in my entire life. I'm 55. My parents used to take me to the Apollo with fair regularity over 40 years ago. Nothing I'd ever seen was that transcendent. By anyone. EWF themselves couldn't top that show, and I attended at least one more subsequent to that.

The key component to their success was the synergy between bandleader Maurice White and Philip, plus they had an impossibly cracking rhythm section, and the Phoenix Horns were doing God's Work.

So, I meet Philip at the airport. He's carrying his own bags. He greets me as though he has known me all of his life, but if you were with EWF back in the day, I guess everyone was your friend. Plus Denver's his hometown. I help him with his bags and I make small talk. Then I ask him, "So... is there a new Earth, Wind & Fire project on the horizon?" Oh, yeah, says Phil. We're working it out in the studio right now.

A month or two later, they release "Continuation" -- a *solo* project by Philip Bailey. As Finn would say: "What the plum?". No new EWF material forthcoming. Get the DVD, "Shining Stars". They stopped working together for various reasons.

This album is great not only because of Phillip Bailey's vocals but there is just a host of others 80's artists as well. Like Denice Willims on the third track entitled "It's Our Time"

Format: Audio CD
Somewhere between the final two EWF albums of the early 80's Powerlight and Electric Universe this album came out during the same year in 1983. Gradually during the first three years of the 80's the entire Earth Wind & Fire camp was starting to falter from various pressures and creative differences. A lot of this moved in tandem with the same sort of situation occurring within the R&B/soul/funk world during that anti disco freeze out. Since this would be the first real formalized solo album by any member of that band Philip didn't have to look hard to find a way to carve out his own musical niche. He went to musician/producer George Duke,whose jazz/funk/pop musical style was very close at this point to EWF and whose falsetto vocals were deeply influenced by Bailey's,to produce and play on this album. Seldom has there ever been a more appropriate marriage of talents in recent years. The result is a short,crisp album that respects musical quality to such as degree I have to say I'll personally claim it as my favorite of Bailey's solo albums.

Consisting of eight tracks,six of which are uptempo and very heavily steeped in the funk ideum there's a great degree of variety and strength to everything to be heard here. The album opens on a very strong note with "I Know",a number reflecting how much 70's funk and 80's new wave had in common and there the two styles could intermix into 80's urban funk. It also has this great slow driving bass groove as well.

Continuation is a really good album. Most only know about the Chinese Wall album (which gave us Easy Lover). I think this album set the stage quite nicely for that album. Having George Duke producing was a great thing. Having everyone from Sister Sledge to Deneice Williams performing... C'mon, does it any better? I will continue to wait patiently for a CD copy (I have no choice,really). When I get it, I will be happy. in the meantime, I have a vinyl copy

I have wanted this cd for well since the original form called "an album" ;0 seriously the songs "I know" and especially "Trapped" takes me back to a time in my life of youth, fun and love, but especially remembering those days of driving down long stretches of highway allowing the music/and the road to there you to a place and get lost into that world. I absolutely love Philip's voice, he has been a mainstay in the group Earth Wind and Fire but have appreciated his solo efforts to give him freedom and you get a brief look into the man's personal tastes especially in another favorite of mine "Children of the Ghetto" and "Chinese Wall" So I'm glad I finally have this in my other EWF/Philp Bailey treasures.
