"I had this album as a kid, then forgot about it for about 20 years and i just got it again. it's amazing. if you like his 70s stuff, like "three" you'll love this."
Musical Magic Again!
James R. Prater | Cleveland Tn. | 10/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For his ninth contemporary jazz release, Bob James brings in the multitalented Rod Temperton, and an all-star vocal cast including Patti Austin, Lani Groves, Major Holley, Luther Vandross, and many others for what only can be described as pure musical magic. The macabre "Hypnotique" with its unintelligible vocals is the ultimate "daytime nightmare". The tempo picks up on the funky "The Steamin' Feeling". We are transported to magical lands with the dreamy "Enchanted Forest". Spyro Gyra frontman Jay Beckenstein shows his stuff on "Unicorn". Bob shows amazing dexterity on both the acoustic piano and Oberheim polyphonic synth. The title song features the vocal cast, as well as some interesting sound effects by Tabby Andriello. Major Holley's vocal solo is doubled by a bowed acoustic bass. "Love Power" (a Bob James original), again features the vocal ensemble plus guitarist Steve Khan, and a sultry solo by Grover Washington, Jr. Missing from this reissue is the original back cover from the vinyl LP, as well as the musician credits. Also this was NOT released in 1979, but in 1981."
A great album

"The song Enchanted Forest didn't catch my attention for a while. I sometimes skipped it. The funky title song was the kind of thing I was looking for. But now Enchanted Forest is a song that I find mezmorizing."
