Product Description

Ohio Players - Gold - Cd

Amazon.com

The Ohio Players put up one of the wildest fronts of the 1970s' funk bands: towering Afros, raunchy rhythms with guitars cranked as loud as horns, kinky album covers. While never quite as inspiredly free-associative as James Brown at his best, their chanted catch phrases bridged the gap between threateningly tough and playground-ready. Gold collects high points that are still a joy to hear--can it be?--a quarter century after the band's peak. --Rickey Wright

Ahh 70's funk. Earth, Wind and Fire, P-Funk, War, AWB, Slave,and of course, the unmatched musicianship, expressiveness, anda**-shakin' GROOVE of Ohio Players. Sure there's a few tracks I'd like to have from Honey and Fire, but nothing you can't live without, and as for what they DID include on Gold, there's not a clinker here. "Skin Tight" is just as good as it gets, did you here that dropped beat at the end of the chorus?! Damn, that's some funky s***! "Fire" was like the new national anthem when it came out. I remember tuning that radio dial, with my ear up close, listening for that siren -- SOMEBODY'S got to be playing Fire, cuz I want to hear it right f***ing now! "Yeaaah unh-huh... FIH-YUH!!"
Whew! They don't make bass players and drummers like those guys any more. They don't exist. Horn players? Forget it. And those vocals! That falsetto dude ripped a hole in my speaker. I remember seeing Ohio Players on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert. Now we got MTV. Sigh... END

I love this album this is a great compilation of the Ohio Players it is missing a few songs but overall I really do like it. I think that it is great material done by some great musicians. I enjoy this album it conatins many of my favorites. But it is missing "Heaven" isn't on here. But, I enjoy the other songs on here as well it is a treat and a must have for any Ohio Players fan. My favorites are : Free, Skin Tight, Love Rollercoaster, and many other great songs. I would recommend any fan of the Ohio Players to buy this album.

This collection of the Ohio Players' old-school funky best should be in every collection...the music is tight, the singing is loose, and the songs burn. "Fopp" is the classic here, but together with "Skin Tight," "Sweet Sticky Thing," amd eight more makes a killer party album that'll get the right parts bumping all night long.
