"Seduction" is now a highly sought after album and cd amongst Rick James' fans---or fans of that 80's R&B, funk music scene(available as an import only as of this writing) for several good reasons: James was at the height of his game and fame as well as being a successful producer/Young's vocals were seductive and powerful in the style of The Mary Jane Girls' lead singer Jo-Jo(another Rick James protégé band)/the production sound of the album was a hybrid or cross between the James' late 70's,early 80's punk-funk era, yet,modern with strong hints of rock,and a good portion of sophisticated drum and synth electronic R&B(it was the 80's).It was definitely a 'Slick-Rick' production.The two top tracks off of this release were 'Mind Games'(hard rock guitar intro) and the piece de resistance, the pulsating and electrifying title-track. There were a few slower jams thrown in the mix and some mid tempo numbers but nothing to make the listener skip forward.
Val Young's "Seduction" was a grossly underrated R&B album that should have received a LOT of attention but didn't. The vocals were strong,the production slick, the tracks memorable.Yet, somehow this one fell through the cracks.For any true die-hard Rick James or soul,R&B,funk fan(especially of this era) this is one album or cd absolutely worth obtaining if you come across a copy or are able to purchase the import!
