The SOS Band made its best music under the "tutelage" of musicmeisters Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, along with the vocal prowess of lead singer Mary Davis. No more is this evident than in the four tracks written by Jam and Lewis: "Break Up," "No One's Gonna Love You," "Weekend Girl," and the title track. With the four songs comprising more than twenty-eight minutes of the album's, more than half of the total running time, it is a very satisfying purchase and worth re-issuing. Obviously, the album loses a star for the remaining three cuts that don't compare to the previously mentioned gems.

I looked and looked for this CD, but could not find it at a price that I could afford. The main song I was looking for was "I Don't Want Nobody Else". I remember hearing this song in the '80's and lovinig it! But because it was not one of their most popular songs, it was almost impossible to find. I eventually found this LP on ebay for a $1.00! And it just so happens that the seller could convert it to a CD as well. Just having that song was enough to make the purchase and wait for the product.

So if you come across this LP or CD and wonder should you get it, please buy it. This CD cannot be purchased under $50.

"Just the Way You Like It," released in 1986, was The SOS Band's fifth studio release and brought them R & B success after being paired with uber-producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis who were riding a crest of success with the likes of Alexander O'Neal, Cherrelle, and, most notably Janet Jackson.

The seven-track disc starts off with the still-powerful trilogy of "No One's Gonna Love You," "Weekend Girl," and the title track. Each segues into the other, making for a romantic medley that's right on the mark.

The success of this album and its style brought international recognition to not only the band but the producers as well, leading to greater chart rankings for the group's successive release, "The Finest."

Like the title says, this album IS "Just the Way You Like It."

you should buy this album just for the first 3 songs, no ones gonna love you is the song you play to show that person that you really love them. weekend girl is the song you play when you want to spend the weekend with that person. just the way you like it is just the contiuation of just be good to me. i am here to tell you those 3 songs alone are the bomb. after that it kinda goes down hill. had the album and played those 3 songs all the time. again classics.

Released in 1984 and hot on the heels of 83's breakthrough album, "On the Rise," "Just the Way You Like It" offers much of the same.

"No One's Gonna Love You" and "Weekend Girl" open up this album with the tender vocals of Mary Davis and Abdul Raoof (duetting on the latter.) After this, the listener is treated to a 9 minute extended version of the first single and title cut which many quip should have been called, "Just Be Good to Me (Part Two.") Although the two songs have similar chord progressions, the melodies and lyrics are completely different. "Break Up" is the last Jam & Lewis offering here and is followed by three other songs (a couple of ballads and a little dance jam) produced by the band itself, which, if you're a fan of Quiet Storm formats, you will enjoy. The closing, "Body Break," is executed in the Flyte Tyme tradition.

The S.O.S. Band has had it's sound cloned more times than any other R&B band in the 80's by the ever present "cowbell sound" alone (the Roland TR-808 drum machine.) 1986's excellent and Gold, "Sands of Time" would be their last outing with Flyte Tyme before Davis would leave to pursue an unsuccessful solo career in 1987 resulting in a change of personnel for the band in the form of two further unsuccessful albums.

Had Davis stayed, I'm sure Flyte Tyme would have played into future S.O.S. Band projects throughout the 90's and with great success. Neither of the two female vocal leads who replaced Davis for two later albums (Pennye Ford and Chandra Currelley) could ever compare with Davis' creamy, understated sexiness. The S.O.S. Band and Davis are like pancakes and syrup. You can't have one without the other.

When I first heard the S.O.S. Band, I instantly fell for this Band, I have all their albums, I had this album to but, you know when you move some of your things get broke or lost, well I believe that's what happen to my beloved album. I'm trying desperately to replace it.

This was my first SOS Album to come across. I remember, i would come from school, and the first thing I would do was play "Weekend Girl". My favourite song in the entire album. I did not pay much attention to the other songs, but suddenly realised, that I also liked the song "Just The Way You Like It", and especially how the ending led into the beginning of "Weekend Girl". Soon the other songs were favourable, and mostly "I Don't Want Nobody Else". Those Guys can sing, Jason Bryant can sing! that is one of their best songs, and it quickly earned my respect. If anyone with this album has ignored this song, please pay attention. You will love it. I promise. Unfortunately, this Album, particularly on CD is almost impossible to come by. I paid a dear price for mine, but it was worth, adding to my collection of rare and very special music! Get it if you can! This deserves nothing less than 5 stars! SOS Band, I don't want nobody else,nobody but you!!!
