The Gap Band were one of the hardest and funkiest bands in the business with the success of their 1982 release IV, that it would be difficult to top it. The Wilson brothers still released a good followup in the fall of 1983 that spawned the top 3 R&B funkster, "Party Train" of which was another signature hit for them. It was mostly known for its bizarre, yet upbeat music video that had a dancing match near a beach somewhere in L.A. Other jammin' highlights are the single "If You're Ready, I'm Ready," plus "I Expect More," "Jam The Motha" and the title track. I also love the ballad, "You Are Everything" and the groove "Someday" (featuring Stevie Wonder on the harmonica). Though this wasn't as good as Gap Band II, III, and IV, Jammin' was still hittin' and it was light on the ballads compared to the last three releases. It still ages well after 30 years.

Following the massive commercial success of the singles (and their accompanying music videos) from Gap Band 4,it was likely apparent to the Wilson brothers even that the album tracks surrounding their hits were starting to grow a little bit weaker and less soulful than they had been on their first three Mercury albums. Realizing how much they'd strove to be artists that respected artistic quality as much commercial quantity there was definitely the importance of musical balance,between hit and non hit material,to keep the quality of the music consistent and good. It was brother Ronnie Wilson who really took over in this respect-writing/co-writing,playing on and producing this album that (at least to me) creatively bought them back to their peak.

Brimming with quality uptempo tunes of astounding variety there's the opening instrumental,an fusion type number called "Where Are We Going?" before going into "Shake A Leg" which,along with the positively patriotic "Jammin' In America" and the terrific classic Gap Band hit "Party Train" all represent the perfect extension of the classic sound they'd already built-with somewhat more of a sleeker synth pop/boogie funk aspect to the production. "Jam The Motha" is a powerful P-Funk inspired number here-again slicker than their earlier effort in the form which makes the song sound all the more new and captivating. On "I'm Ready (If Your Ready)" is a synth spiked and very catchy pop/funk number with some excellent vocal harmonies. "I Expect More" is a somewhat lower tempo,in funkier style, take of their hyperactive dance oriented "Early In The Morning" from the previous album.

This particular album came out in a time period when a lot of change was taking place, and it offered songs that were full of life and hope. I think it should be placed back on the record store shelves and promoted once again. at this present time in life, people should have music made available to them that has as uplifting feeling with it, no matter if it was just made, or if it was made 30 years ago. This album will never go out of date. it is one of the best of all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Classic Gap Band funk! I prefer "Jam The Motha" the most! You can't go wrong with The Gap Band albums for that funky stuff. You get it here, with a ballad or two also.

Jammin' CD by the Gap Band is a great, once hard to get CD with a decent price now. For awhile this CD was unavailable at record stores. In some cases, it was over $100. 'Jam the Motha' is the controversial track.

If you like sound lyrics and message music then "I expect more" for those of you in troubled one sided relationships and the soothing, haunting yet uplifting "Someday" (That day has not come yet!) will fill you with a sense beauty that you will only find in a hell fire church with a great choir and a smashing band!!!

These two tracks are worth the price alone - Go Get It!!!

this Album didn't hit like the one in 82 but it still has moments such as Party Train.their Synth sound influenced the WHole New Jack Swing Era.also Charlie WIlsons Vocals.this album started sounding like their other albums a little too much so here but this was still worthy of a listen or two.

In 1983 the Gap Band released their first album without producer Lonnie Simmons and from the looks of thing the time was well worth spent. With Ronnie now taking over the producer reigns the Gap Band display a slightly different sound but still keeping the funk alive. On this album you can really see where Aaron Hall got his influence from and also wher Charlie Wilson got his. The first song "Shake A Leg" is a well arranged funk number with its nice horn section and Charlie's Stevie Wonder like vocals. The second song "I'm Ready (If Your Ready) with its smooth lead vocal by Charlie and hanclaps throughout the song should have been a major hit but still recieved a lot of airplay in the D.C. area when I was kid back in the early 80's. Although their were no number one singles on this album(first time in two years) "Party Train" still snuck it way in the top ten on the r&b charts. The first ballad off the album "You're My Everything" is good but is not one of their best ballads, still a good listen. The reggae inflenced "Jammin In America" is okay but is a little to 80's sounding for me with all the synthensizers. Charlie Wilson displays a great vocal on the touching "Smile" but again is overly synthensized(thank goodness its only 3 minutes 'cause who knows where they have took this). The hit "Party Train" is the highlight of the album and like many of their hits features some superb drumming from Raymond "Moon" Calhoun. After two more funk numbers "Jam The Motha" and "I Expect More From You" things slow down a little for "Your Something Special" which features a change of pace with a rare lead vocal from brother Ronnie. The closer "Someday" an emotional tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.Read more ›
