5.0 out of 5 stars Truly the cream, the best. If you buy one, take this one. September 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If one were to ask me what love is, I would put on "Stranger to Love," "Blue Love," or "turn." "Best of your heart," "Destiny" and "Stay" are certainly what emotion is all about. This is Chaka Khan at her finest. This album is the reason why we love her so much. She gets inside of your soul and makes you feel every mood, emotion, and each thought behind the words. Fittingly, this album also showcases the style, artistry, and genius of Rufus. "Take Time" and "Street Player" are wonderful displays of what bands were before programming. You will love this album. Other Rufus/Chaka Khan efforts are great, but none compare to this in terms of completeness, warmth, and fulness. You will love every cut. Not overproduced, just emotion and talent. Most artists get better as time goes on. However, this early work will never be eclipsed. All of the other Rufus/Chaka works have one or two fantastic cuts. This one bats 1000. Quality from start to finish. From a real Chaka junkie, this is the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rufus and Chaka kicked Butt! October 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is by far one of their best albums or cd! I bought this album years ago, 1978, to be exact! It was my first album I ever bought!! I still have it somewhere in a collection of music! There are no bands like Rufus and there are no bands from R&B that can play like this! They had some of the best musicians in the industry! The singing is superb!! Chaka is the best and she will always be!! Because I was in love at at the time or ( so I thought), " The Best of my Heart", was the stand out for me! Also "Blue Love" as well as the dramatic "Stay"! These songs will outshine any songs written today! They had so much style and they were about being true, and the words were fantastic as well as memorable! Too bad people are not as "lyrically inclined" as they were back then! It is about the bottom line now! Your lyrics don't have to mean anything! The music had more than a "hook" or a "loop". They were not rehashed with beats to emphasis the nothingness!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Solid Record from Rufus & Chaka October 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
'Streetplayer' is another great record from Rufus & Chaka, this record has them placed in a more mellow smooth jazz\r&b setting, Chaka's voice is so great on this record! and Tony as always adds his unigue voice to the mix, 'Streetplayer' was alittle ahead of its time for 1978, this record is a concept album which needs to be heard in it's entirety, that's why only two singles were released 'Stay' & 'Blue Love', now this gem has been remastered, the original cd release had some audio flaws, those have been cleaned up... the remastered sound on this cd is fantastic! the sound is crisp and full, i'm hearing things i've haven't heard before... this is a limited edition so get it while you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars play it again and again. August 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Growing up as a teen in the seventies, I listened to a lot of Rufus. I thought they were one of the most progressive artists of their time, and me being a white boy growing up in the urban inner city, I could really identify with this genre. This album got little recognition because Chakas long awaited debute album with I'm every women overshadowed it,however this is a must have for collectors. The fusion of r/b,rock,and jazz sounds flow throughout along with chaka great vocal abilities. Two great instrumentals let rufus showcase the band. great ballads also.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites April 24, 2002
By Theresa
Format:Audio CD
The instrumentation is wonderful, and you can't beat Chaka's voice. I have fond memories of the album cover being on the actual record - so cool. The title cut, to me, is the best - it is quintessential 70s funk. "Don't Let them get the best" and "Stay" are also good. This is old-school R&B funk at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many to choose from; however, January 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
this is hands down their best album. I wouldn't say it if it weren't true! Guitar player and co-lead singer, Tony Madien's skills really comes to life on this project.
