If there is one word to describe this Greatest Hits compilation,
it would be: FUNKY. In the funk-style of Rick James,
Kool & The Gang, The Gap Band, and the early years of Prince,
Motown's Dazz Band proved as well as many other black
groups, that there was life after disco in the 1980s.
This Greatest Hits compilation features
ten songs from 1980 to 1986 by The Dazz Band.
Let It Whip starts out the album, as this song
was a huge dance hit in the local clubs. (That's where I
discovered this song, when I was vacationing in Florida in 1982.)
The rest of the album has ultimate dance-funk tunes that catches
your attention real quick. The synthesizers in tunes like
Joystick, Keep It Live (On The K.I.L.), and Cheek To Cheek
keeps your listening ear glued to the groove. And of course,
there are some slow-mellow romantic tunes like Invitation
To Love and Knock! Knock! which compares to the beauty
of Earth, Wind & Fire.
The Dazz Band Greatest Hits is a great dance-party album.
It's funky, it's danceable; it gets the juices flowing.
If you're familar with such albums as Prince's 1999, Michael
Jackson's Off The Wall, or if you're just a Super Freak
like Rick James, this album will get you up and boogie'ing before
you know it.
