The mother of them all. Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam with Full Force's "I Wonder If I Take You Home" is often cited, along with Shannon's "Let the Music Play" and Jellybean's "The Mexican," as one of the first freestyle tracks to gain recognition. Ms. Lisa's winsome bleat is the perfect expression of the hard teenage realities she faces in the song, which is a more lyrically graphic update of the sturdy themes in "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" Meanwhile the melody (such that it is) and the beats goose the track into a giddy, cosmopolitan distillation of urban youth. The huge single "All Cried Out" follows up on "I Wonder If I Take You Home": she did take him home, and lived to regret it. Also contains the essential early freestyle smash, "Can You Feel the Beat." --John Sanchez

Before starring on the new Nickelodeon-network children's series, "Taina" (she plays the title character's mother), a young girl by the name of Lisa Velez was transforming the music scene inside out. Going by her stage name, Lisa Lisa, she teamed up with two other local musicians to form one of the 1980's most famous trios. Shattering the mold of pretty white kids singing pop, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam showed the world that three Latino kids growing up in one of New York City's tough neighborhoods, Hell's Kitchen, can make memorable dance music.
Partnered with the talented songwriting/singing group Full Force, Lisa Lisa, scored hit after hit with such songs as "All Cried Out" and "Lost in Emotion." On their debut album, they rocked the dance world with their very own brand of freestyle music.
Freestyle, a musical style popularized by young Puerto Ricans living in New York, would capture the world by storm in the upcoming years as many artists and groups such as Lissette Melendez, George Lamond, Expose, and Safire became well-known names on radios and music video shows throughout the United States.
On this debut album, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam hits us with three memorable songs: The hit "I Wonder If I Take You Home"; the love ballad "All Cried Out"; and the dance-hit "Can You Feel The Beat?". Their first hit, "I Wonder If I Take You Home" sealed their fame as one of the 1980's most memorable songs due to it's catchy beats and lyrics. "All Cried Out," a slow, yet soulful ballad was one of the first freestyle-love songs out there and it paved the way for more such songs (e.g., Brenda K. Starr's "I Still Believe"). "Can You Feel the Beat?

Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam's debut is a freestyle classic. With each song a extension of the other, all leading to a complete finish. "I wonder if i take you home" is their well known classic. A listen to "Behind my eyes", "You'll never Change", and "Private Property" and you'll realize each of those cuts are just as good. The whole album is consistent. The ballad "All cried out" with FULL FORCE is essential. A song to note as well is the dance hit "Can you feel the beat?". FULL FORCE produced this effort and it is one anyone interested in 80's r&b and freestyle should have. A winner!

perfectly remastered with a perfect selection of bonus tracks, the BBR edition of Lisa Lisa and The Cult Jam with Full Force features the actual original label design of the Columbia Records label on the vinyl, bringing the nostalgia back before you even play the disc. The booklet features plenty of liner notes and an updated essay on the album. Sound quality is fantastic.

As for the bonus tracks, it's numerous remixes of two of the big dance singles from the album. The 12" full force remix of I Wonder if I Take You Home runs less than 10 seconds longer than the original album version, and I think the only real difference is an a cappella intro of the "home, home, home home" part. There might be a slight remix in terms of EQing and what instrumentation is brought to the front, but it is really essentially the album version. the Shep Pettibone mix is a treat because he became such a strong force in 80s dance remixes, but the mix itself is not very fluid. I personally prefer the LP version or "full force remix". And finally, you get the Cult Jam Dub Edit of the song. Next, "Can You Feel the Beat" is also presented in a "Full Force Remix" that is more than a minute shorter than the album version but definitely has some noticeable remixing, including added percussion and a heavier rhythm track. Finally, you get the 12" dub remix of the song.

Hopefully, BBR and Cherry Red Records will now focus on releasing Lisa Lisa's bigger hit album "Spanish Fly" with bonus tracks.

Good debut from Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. Before Jennifer Lopez, Lisa Lisa was the puerto rican mommie putting down. With the production of Full Force the sound was raw but still good for the pop charts. Lisa might have been small in stature, but her voice was as big anyone.

LISA LISA.......LISA LISA'S MUSIC TAKES ME BACK TO THE GLORY DAYS OF DANCE MUSIC,HER STRONG VOICE WITH THE GREAT DANCE CUTS MAKE A GREAT COMBINATION. I CAN STILL REMEMBER GOING TO THE DISCO BACK IN 1984 AND DANCING TO "CAN YOU FEEL THE BEAT", "TAKE ME HOME", AND OF COURSE MY FAVORITE "I WONDER IF YOU TAKE ME HOME", THIS SONG REALLY BROUGHT DOWN THE HOUSE BACK IN THE 80'S. TODAY WHEN I HEAR IT BRINGS BACK VERY FOND MEMORIES. BUY THIS CD AND KEEP IT IN THE ARCHIVES, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

I have all of Lisa,Lisa's work.I always loved "All Cried Out" with Full Force,even when Mariah Carey's short lived girl group
"Allure" remade it. But I'm Ol' Skool and my vinyl album is shot.So yes I would indeed recommend any of their work as well
as this one.

I had this in Cassette form back when I was a kid! Not that long ago! Anyway, I loved it then as I love it now. The songs are still good to listen today as they were then. Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam are one of the few 80's artist that people still talk about today, a shame that she and the boys are no longer together. The record is remaster, and every sound is enhanced to meet today standards. Sony records was in charge of remastering it, kudos to them for still bringing music on Cd's. If you love the 80's or hip hop/RB this is right your alley, Take this home with you...
