"My father first let me hear this album when I was about 15 years old. It just so happens he had it on wax with all the snap crackle and pop on it. Considering I was into Isaac Hayes, I really got into the story behind the album. David Porter takes the listeners through his heart-felt love story of a man in love with another man's woman. This album preceeded all the skits that have become popular in most rap albums. If you listen to "The Masquerade is Over" you can hear where rappers such as LL Cool J, The RZA, Biggie Smalls (Who shot ya) and Prince Paul all sampled Porter's Memphis String's sound. For all the Stax sounds fans, this is a must have. Trust a 24 year old funk fan...it's a classic!"
Beyond My Expectations

"Mr. Porter's music is outstanding. He not only sings but write as well. David Porter is still well beyond my expectations after all these years. I was first introduce to his magical songs by my brother. Hang On Sloopy still flows through my mind even though I heard it over 25 years ago. My brother had all three of David Porter's albums. Unfortunately time, people and age has done them in, and I'm sorry to say that to date no copies of "Gritty, Groovy and Gettin It" or "Into the Real Thing" are available. Therefore, I as well as many other of his fans will be denied the pleasure of hearing his other treasured songs, such as "It's Over (The Masquerade)," "I Can't See You When I Want To," "Hand On Sloopy" et.al. And this my friends is a crime."

"I really enjoyed being able to listen to this particular album/CD in my adult years, it brings back happy family memories. However, Mr. Porter had recorded a couple of other albums before this one. One in particular I'm looking for has a song on it called "Hang on Sloopy" or "Snoopy" this is the song I would really love hearing again, but unfortunately, I can't find his previous albums anywhere. Any assistance or suggestions you or our fellow music lovers have to offer will be truly appreciated."
