1988 Guy has just released it first album Al B Sure is becoming established and from Oakland 2 brothers and a cousin get together to become a group that would put out the first of many memorable albums during this time. Danceable grooves mid-tempo slow cuts, and a let's have fun attitude make this album into one of the classics for this time period. My Baby Doll, For the Love of you, Little Walter(which when it came out caused controversy because it was a take off on the spiritual hymn Wade In The Water)and 261.5 to this day still have that infectious feel of a late summer night Bar-B-Q, being around friends and family, and just having a good time. It's too bad today's music doesn't have the postive happy vibe like this album does.

With my best friend right now currently residing in the Bay Area of California? It's really gotten me to realize how much of the funk and soul music I admire and love flows from that area. Sly & The Family Stone,Tower Of Power,Pointer Sisters,Ledisi and of course Toni Toni Tone here. Here we have the Wiggins brothers Dwayne on guitar,Charles (now Raaphael Saadiq) on bass,with both sharing vocal leads plus Christian Riley on drums and keys. During 1988? The New Jack Swing sound was getting it's groove big time with the likes of Teddy Riley,Al B. Sure and Babyface creating their own tributaries of the sounds. This group however probably made one of the most important and lasting contributions.

"Baby Doll" opens the album with a digitized shuffle that represents the more hit oriented side of the new jack sound. "For The Love Of You","Who's Lovin' You",the hit single "Little Walter" and "261.5" are all stomping synth driven funk with extremely phat instrumental sections. Most of them punctuated by Dwayne's chunky rhythm guitar licks. "Born Not To Know" and "Love Struck" are both more uptempo with some excellent call and response piano and guitar. Not to mention some sampled MIDI horns joining into the musical conversation. The electric sitar drenched "Pain" and the more rock guitar oriented closer "Not Gonna Cry For You" provide the two ballads on the album. The latter with some climactic,progressive drum soloing.

One of the things that make this album really stand out in it's time is how all the way live the overall sound is. The electric and organic instrumental elements that define this album all come together to give the flavor of a full band interaction. Even more so than Guy even on many levels.

This Cd came out when I was 6. Needless to say, I still remember some cuts from it playing on the radio at the time. This disc is quite good. It doesn't sound like every other mediocre, cookiecutter R&B release of the early 90's/late 80's. There is a certain vibe flowing throughout the album that tells us that while these boys were serious music makers, they were having FUN doing it! This album's few foibles are overpowered by its strengths. "Not Gonna cry for you" is one of the most touching songs TTT has ever penned. This album was a solid blueprint for the other Tony Toni Tone albums to come.

Ever since my freshman year in high school, I've been listening to this old new jack city group known as Tony! Toni! Tone! And I had heard every one of their official albums except for their first. I searched and searched for a copy ever since then. That's about 4 years of searching. When I finished listening to Who? I said to myself they are one of the most consistent bands I have ever listened to in terms of quality. I always have a worry of going backwards in terms of listening to artist because I expect them to get better with time, and, in turn, their older not sounding good, but somehow the 3T's were album to get better with time AND stay as good as they use to. Who's Lovin' You and 261.5 are my favorites on the album. In the end, it's a great band and if you're into the genre I recommend it first and foremost.

What these guys did in such a short span for R&B lovers hopfully will not be lost to history. Compared to the lackluster, whimpy, whiney, non-dancable, non-singing crap that they try to call Neo-soul today, these guys were a blast of fresh air....
