5.0 out of 5 stars Funky album--her best effort to me!, July 16, 2005
This review is from: Sheila E (Audio CD)
Sheila E's 1987 album is still my favorite one by her. Even though it came during a year that Whitney Houston, U2, Whitesnake, Motley Crue,LL Cool J, Michael Jackson and others dominated the music charts, this is a very funky album. I still love Koo Koo with its tribal drums hitting on there! I even danced to it in a program because it just jumped out of left field. And even though it peaked at No. 35 on the R&B chart and its video got some airplay on MTV and BET, it has a strong message in it while still remaining funky. David Z (or it is really Prince who came up with those funky grooves?) gives Sheila E some strong numbers here. Hold Me surprised many people, proving that Sheila E could kick it on a ballad. But what wins on this collection is Sheila playing the drums and percussion so very well like she did on Romance 1600 and In The Glamourous Life. Though she's moved on to gospel and jazz sounds, this album reflects her many strengths as an artist and musician.
