Gap Band 8 is a great cd. I hadn't heard all of these songs since my dad first brought home the LP so many years ago, and at that time, I picked out songs I would listen to, and ignore the rest of all this glorious and fun (Big Fun) album. It is so very well balanced between sweet sentimental love songs and an alter-ego of the wild-and-crazy antics of what had to be an amazing stage performance.
It's hard to call a favorite on this album, but since Don't Take It Away is playing right now, I'll go with it (change my mind on the next great track).
The beauty of this album also lies in the instrumentation. It is not over-synthesized. You can hear the off-key piano tinkling in the background of some, and the artistically placed drum patterns throughout. These guys were all talented and found a way to stay relevant in terms of style and production all those years without losing the raw and simple elements of love and fun and music, all combined to celebrate happiness.
