5.0 out of 5 stars Monsterjam June 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
It was almost 30 years ago but I remember the day I picked this one up on vinyl like it was yesterday. I bought it at a record shop in Yaba, a popular shopping area in Lagos, Nigeria. I remember not being able to wait to get it home, peeling off the cellophane wrapping (it had a colourful promotional sticker on it but I can't remember what it said) and opening up the foldout double-page album like a book. There's a smell that only records have...

I remember really loving the iconic photo of the group running up that sunny California street. I remember checking out the picture of Quincy Jones on the inner left-hand page, looking young, energetic and devilishly handsome. Spread over the rest of the inside are the rest of the group; drummer and percussionist John Robinson, bassist Bobby Watson, guitarist and vocalist Tony Maiden, keyboardist David "Hawk" Wolinski, keyboardist Kevin Murphy and of course, the lovely Chaka, long dark tresses flowing all over the picture...

I remember taking out the protective inner-jacket and pulling out the shiny black disc, putting it on my dad's old stereogram, sitting back with my little brother and being awed by the production of the music that felt like it was almost reaching out and touching us. Happy Days.

It's not quite the same with a CD even if the CD is sealed (which mine was, thankfully) and the iconic inner-sleeve photography is in black and white and loses some of the vibrancy of the album original.

But oh, well. The music is definitely the same and maybe that's what really counts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very under-rated and under-appreciated Rufus March 31, 2005
By 20to20K
Format:Audio CD
A lot of critics and music fans were quick to dis and dismiss this album because of the success of the disco release "Do You Love What you Feel" that it is connected to. That's too bad because time has revealed this to be one of Rufus' more polished and enduring works. The same happened with Earth Wind & Fire's "I AM", but we'll leave that for another review.

The instrumentation, the songwriting, and Chaka's vocalese are all in top form here. So what some of the tunes also happen to be "danceable"...is that a crime? There are admittedly a few filler songs that prevent a five star rating...but on the other hand the good songs are great and this LP still gets plenty of play in my system.

As typical with Quincy Jones productions the sound recording is audiophile quality thanks to the mixing magic of Bruce Sweiden.

Don't buy the negative anti-disco sentiment. Give it a listen and judge for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Masterjam... November 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"Do you love what you feel?" That truly is the question that this album asks! Yes, I did love what I felt from that song. This was a good effort by Rufus. "Masterjam" was also good. Get a copy at a good price and enjoy it! Four stars!

3.0 out of 5 stars Still good work March 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Although this album is not one of Rufus's most consistent pieces of work it does contain some great material. "Do You Love What You Feel" is a classic and Chaka's vocals in "Any Love" are haunting. She starts this number out in that deep, rich, earthy tone and ends the number wailing like a horn. Other favorites are "Live In Me", which has sort of an enchantingly mystical feel to it and "What Am I Missing" Lyricly, that is the best number on the CD. To quote: "There is an ill wind blowing with no let up in sight; Evil ill wind blowing and I've been up all night." That's my favorite track on this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Quincy, and Quincy only. October 10, 2001
By V-Lee
Format:Audio CD
4 years before they reached the top of their popularity with their final album 'live - stompin at the savoy', rufus recorded an album that, even if you have not listened to it, one can easily see that this had to be a masterpiece, because it had this 'QUNICY JONES PRODUCTION' logo on it. Jones himself at the peak of his creativity as producer and arranger, made this nine brilliant compositions to become timeless soul'n'funk tunes, with a standard of quality, that only quincy himself reached, two years later , when he released his 'dude' - album. in terms of arranging 'any love' is amongst the best songs that have ever been produced (just listen to the strings, and rhythm arrangement). what rufus fans may miss on this album is their rooty and rough funk attitude, nevertheless this is an album that shoul definitely have a place in everyone's record-shelf, even if it's just because quincy, and quincy only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loves Real Music October 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Of all the music I have heard over the years, I was so happy to see that I can receive this album as a cd which I bought years ago. The timing of this music is priceless!! There is nothing here that does not move me! It brings tears to my eyes that great artists are overlooked these days and success is based on their ability to sell music and have #1 hits instead of the! What about the artistry of real musicians playing their own creative work of art! Where has the true art form gone? My most favorites are Heaven Bound, Live in Me, Body Heat, and Dancing for your Love! The riffs are fantastic and I welcome the sound of "real music" and instrumentation compared to all of the techno we have today! If there were certain things we could bottle, Chaka Khan and Tony Maiden voices would be placed in a time capsule to be savored years to come to remind us of the artistry of a Quincy Jones production as well as a Rufusized sound!
