The 1998 edition of Babatunde Olatunji's "Drums of Passion" series focuses on themes of "love." He mixes the traditional drums of west Africa with an easygoing blend of highlife, pop and jazz. Don't expect any lyrical revelations though, with words as philosophical as any thing you've heard from The Spice Girls or The Beach Boys. But that is probably not the point here, as the album rolls through its lightweight themes with a luscious tropi-pop attitude. This is certainly not one for fans of rootsy African drumming, but if you like highlife and Afro-pop with a romantic twist, Love Drum Talk will speak to you. --Louis Gibson

Anyone remotely interested in percussions and rhythm with vocals will be floored by this album just like i was. I have owned this cd for over two years and there isnt a day that goes by that i dont listen to it. Babatunde is a idol for myself and anyone that i know who has ever laid a hand on an african drum, he inspires me and this album makes my heart sing. The best parts of most song on this album are deep into them when they pick up and twist different rhythms which are complimented by vocals. Long live babatunde and the path of rhythm he has shown me.

After renewing Love Drum Talk from the library four times in three months, I broke down and ordered it today. Two songs -- Spell Monisola and Long Distance Lover -- sustained me on a five-hour car trip and put me into a dance-trance. The four-year-old grandchild was singing along in her car seat. Our gluteal muscles, lungs, and vocal cords got a terrific workout. While stopped in traffic, I mastered several drumming patterns on the steering wheel. Fortunately it was snowing and we had to keep going, or I would have pulled the car over and danced on the highway. Babatunde Olatunji contributes to the possibility for joy in life, and brother, do we need him.

This is just a really fun recording! The first time through, be mindful of the volume knob on your stereo. Some of the drum beats might shoot you clean out of the house! What I mean is, it's dynamic as can be, with a very real sense of the performance taking place right in your room. I guess my review is just as much about the musical presence that Babatundi visits upon us as the care and effort with which Chesky Records used in the recording of this great musician.
I can't help but feel uplifted when I play this CD!

A little more funk in this one than the tribal drum stuff I expect from babatunde titled release, in my opinion this should be titled the African Funk band ( or whatever) featuring babatunde on drums.

It's bluesy, sexy-earthy all about love at the heart of a drum. If i could i would dance to this all day long, for go clean clothes, food and clean bathrooms and live on air and drum.

This is a kinder, gentler Olatunji than we heard in his classic Drums of Passion a few decades back. These cuts amble along at an agreeable pace, and overall the recording has a very pleasant sound and feel to it. The engineering seems to favor smoothness over dynamics, but that may be more a function of the musicians than the mix. If you are in the mood for some African percussion in a mellow setting, this is the CD for you.
