I have this CD, and the second one. When I was going to college back in the eighties, I heard this jam in the SUB building, and I thought-'Who in the world is that'?! Then I eventually found out--it was Zapp! Back then I was off into the Commodores, and the bassist in THAT group plays the bass real heavy. Enter Zapp! When I heard that heavy especially on the track'More Bounce to the Ounce', I was completely blown away!! I tell you folks, Zapp's got MORE BOUNCE! I used to have this on LP, but thank goodness for the compact disc! Pop it in, and y'all will have more BOUNCE to your ounce on the dance floor! I am happy that I have this CD, but only saddened that we all lost a great preformer--Roger Troutman. May he rest in peace, and when you get this Zapp CD, get not only your groove on, (as we old-schoolers say,) but get your bounce on, as I say! Thank you for this great CD!

While this artist and LP have a definate P-Funk influence, Roger Troutman is no less a brilliant musician himself. The same way James Brown took the African-American experience (like Hendrix, Sly Stone & others) to a different level, so did Roger & Zapp with "More Bounce To The Ounce." It was, and is, like nothing ever heard before. Just like Larry Graham's bass changed the face of R/B and funk, so did "More Bounce." The whole 9 minutes of the song is irresistable. It opened the door for street funk, which gave way to another type of "funk": Hip-Hop and Rap. This one song has probably been "sampled" the most by young rappers and R/B artists alike...and they continue to this day! This LP is a defining moment in Black music. Not only is Roger a master at the "talk box" (that computerized voice thing you hear) his deep blues committments come shining through. Enjoy this LP. They had to re-issue it, the grooves never cooled off. :-)

Zapp's in the house! This is powerhouse funk! Zapp came on the scene swinging, and knocked listeners down. "More Bounce To The Ounce" sets the table for this revolutionary funk band, and Roger and Co. did their thing. Every single song is a smash, with my favorites being "More Bounce", "Brand New Player", and "Be Alright". A must buy for a music fan.

Great effort by the madcap minions of the funk. Bootsy was right to help launch this band, his efforts on the first disc only prove this. Roger and company never let us down on all the tracks. While many who write reviews want to tell you about the significants of each track I won't go there. You should listen and judge for yourself. The music is good, the music is fun. FUN ?!! Yes fun, it's been a long time since music was fun and still made you wanna get your groove on. That's what this disc does, as Boosty says on one of his early Funkadelic tracks. I promise to be good to your earhole, Zapp is good to the earholes, Careful now, you've just been ZAPPED.

The 1980 self-titled album by Zapp (by Roger and Zapp Troutman) is one of the finest funk albums ever produced. Listen closely for the influences of Bootsy Collins (producer) and Parliament/Funkadelic. The hit single from the album, More Bounce to the Ounce, introduced the world to Roger Troutman's trademark use of the vocorder, but the real gem of the album is the slow and sultry Be Alright. There is not a bad cut in this six song album. If you're a fan of late 70s and early 80s funk, this selection is a "must have".

Fun, funky, fresh. Not a bad song on this album. It doesn't have quite the polish of Zapp II, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Unlike Zapp IV and Zapp V, the musicianship is front and center, and the album doesn't rely on gimmicks. Sure, the talkbox is featured prominently on a couple songs, but the box isn't overused. Possibly to the surprise of those who only own Zapp & Roger's Greatest Hits, more than half of the cuts on Zapp have Bobby Glover or Roger (w/o talkbox) handling lead vocals.
Among the musical highlights are Roger's funky, jazzy guitar solos, which are spread throughout the album, and Lester's tight drumming. Zapp Troutman's bass playing doesn't dazzle in the same way that Louis Johnson's or Larry Graham's playing does, but it sure is funky and stays in the groove right with the drums. In particular, all these elements come together spectacularly well on "Be Alright." Sometimes I wish it were twice as long.
The first Zapp album is one of my all time favorite albums. It never gets old, and it makes me wish that more current music had the same type of musicianship, skill, and thought put into it. It gets my funky seal of approval.

Although existing for a couple previous years as The Human Body Zapp along with their leader Roger Troutman and company really made a splash in the world on this album,surely one of a handful of true funk classics.Produced by none other then Bootsy Collins himself this will probably always be known as the place to find "More Bounce To The Ounce" in all it's nine plus minute glory-THE song not only most representative of this band but of the whole electro funk movement in general;an all time classic.But what comes next?Three MORE slices of hefty funk in the amazing "Freedom","Brand New Player" and "Funky Bounce".These tunes don't have the heavy eletronic moog bass thump of the hit but emphasize the sound of the band itself,the slapping bass,the funky drummer and Roger's playful way with the bluesy rhythm guitar.They are without question helped along by none other then James Brown's former bassist (Boosty at the control booth) and the sheer charisma of these musicians-Roger included."Be Alright" offers a wonderful sing-a-long slice of modernized gospel inflected soul and from there it's right on the the shuffling mixture of Motown and blues of "Coming Home" and it makes a GREAT combination.What really surprises me about Zapp in general is the great melodies and pop hooks they are always able to throw into their heavy,blues sprinkled funk.There are bands that can jam and there are bands that can JAM out a tune-THAT's Zapp!And you'll find that here as well as on Zapp II,Zapp III and every other bit of music Roger got his hands on!So if you want a party on your CD player where everyone is invited this more then worth your while!
