By K. Varraso VINE VOICE on April 3, 2009
Format: Audio CD
In 1975, when this album came out, I wasn't allowed to have it due to the cover art. I bought it anyway, threw out the cover, and kept it in a KC and the Sunshine Band sleeve that was kicking around the house. Mom never caught on, and she even learned to chill out to "Give Me an Inch."

Flash forward to today. I'm no longer young enough that I have to listen to my mother about cover art, and I don't have to hide anything I want to hear. I re-bought the album as an MP3 (Heaven knows what happened to the LP), and was delighted to discover that the album hasn't aged a bit. The velvety smooth music is just as wonderful as it was back in the day, and has the power to make an old lady like me want to slither out of something comfortable. (I was a little girl back in 1975, so I won't comment on any side effects back then.)

Pressure Drop is a phenomenal, very sexy album, with music that's just perfect for the background when my very favorite husband comes home. He rather likes the side effects it has on me as well, so much so that even though Robert Palmer isn't his favorite musician, he never, ever complains when I grab this on the iPod and put it in the speaker.

Robert Palmer+snazzy suit (as always) delivers not only a classic album cover but a record filled with the deep funk of
"Work To Make It Work","Fine Time" and "Trouble",the upbeat
Carribean-style reggae of the tital song and catchy pop/soul numbers like "Give Me And Inch","Back In My Arms" and "Here With
You Tonight".This is primal,Little Feat/Meters-influenced Robert
Palmer with that great New Orleans Dr.John'ilke funky feel-before
Palmer's hard rock productions took over and along with his other
three mid 70's albums a perfect example of this genre!

This 1975 album still holds up as one of the very best ones that Robert Palmer recorded, but it doesn't seem to get the praise it deserves, sandwiched between his amazing debut solo effort, "Sneaking Sally Through the Alley" and his more popular MTV-hyped albums and singles in the 1980s.

Palmer does a superb job of covering songs by Toots & the Maytals (the title track), the Lowell George/Little Feat gem "Trouble", and Allen Toussaint's "River Boat." But perhaps the best material on here are Palmer originals such as "Give Me an Inch", "Back in My Arms", and "Fine Time." Honestly, not a dud in the bunch. This is terrific album from start to finish.

And how 'bout those talented backing musicians? Who are they? Well, that brings up my next point. The only reason I'm deducting this a star is the almost total lack of information and liner notes on this Island CD reissue. This is one of those cheap versions with no booklet or details about the recordings, so lacking in info that might as well be a CD-R. The fact that all of the members of Little Feat, including Lowell George, played on this album is not even mentioned. A shameful omission to an otherwise splendid recording. At least Amazon is selling this for a very low price.

I saw Mr. Palmer at The Roxy in West Hollywood on the Tour for this album. Robert played 3 nights, 2 shows a night, I remember after meeting him that he told me "The record company is recording these shows for my next album". Anyway.. back to the show. Robert started the show with "Work To Make It Work", the band was well rehersed and he had 2 Female backup singers. I was a kid, and wanting to witness "history", I saw all 3 nights and the shows got better as I got to know the set list. He did most of Pressure Drop, and assorted songs fron "Sneakin Sally". When we talked after the 1st night, Robert said "he was excited to be releasing a live album". I told him "I'll be the 1st person to buy it when it comes out". He was impressed with this 14 year old Fan from Los Angeles. The next release from Robert was a studio album, and I was Bummed Out. But I'll never forget Robert, lookin' oh so sharp, Crooning 'Back In my Arms", the girls were swooning. The Creole tunes like "Here With You Tonight" had a swinging bouncy feel live. Boy, Folks.. This was an unforgettable evening. I miss Robert, I saw him at House of Blues while he was on tour for his last CD. The guy was a pro. Pressure Drop is a must have CD. Gotta love this man, and his music.

If you were a teen in the mid 1980s, and didn't know anything about Robert Palmer, you know him to this day for "Addicted To Love." Forget the buzzsaw guitars and Palmer's amazing growl. When MTV was music TV, those black spandex robo girls with the chalk white bobbing heads cut an image that you can see today, clear as 1986. It was not exactly art rock, but who doesn't want to buy that house in the Hamptons, to put the kids through college.

I still swear those girls were made of thick rubber and string operated, but that does not matter nearly as much as the amazingly pleasant surprise I got when I found Pressure Drop for a dollar on vynal and played it.

Pressure Drop is simply some of the most polished, refined and classy pop I have heard in ages. With its perfect playing, production planned like war campaign, and complex layers within relatively basic song structures, I learned a whole different side of Robert Palmer. An amazing writer and singer before digital production, before MTV; back in the era when Steely Dan was still proving that yes kids, even the most sophisticated pop can make you a millionaire. All this with the amazing backup of Little Feat.

I find it a little hard at this point to tell you blow by blow what I love about each song. As a reviewer, that is a lousy place to be. But as a listener and music lover, this place is one of the best. You know you have stumbled onto something that you are going to enjoy listening to for a long time, absorbing the sounds one by one. It is not often I experience this--I am a collector and I would say one album of each thirty I buy--but ultimate, this is that needle you look for in those vinyl hey stacks.

And I don't care what ANYONE says. Those girls in 86' were rubber puppets
