"I saw Jesse in concert in the eighties, and he totally rocked! I love the whole Minneapolis scene; Prince, The Time, The Family, Sheila E., Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis, and of course Jesse Johnson. His debut is full of funky bass and snappy synths with a killer production/mix. He holds his own vocally as well.My favorite songs include: "Be Your Man", "I Want My Girl", "Let's Have Some Fun", and "Can You Help Me?".I highly recommend anything and everything from this era. It's a blast!"
I wore this album out the summer of 85

"One of the best of the post minnepolis sound Jesse Johnson (of the legendary funk band The Time) released this album soon after the band disbanded after "Purple Rain" in 84. After buying the album in July of 85 I frankly wore it out having to buy another later that year, the grooves are smoking with the minnepolis sound all over it with snyths and guitar that quakes with grooves. Jesse is no Prince on the vocal front but his singing is more than solid on his first solo album with the highlight being "Can You Help Me" with it's great solo. Johnson was one of the great guitar players of the 80'sand this album more than proves it and he is even a better songwriter than most people gave him credit for."

"This reissue of this classic was a wise decision by the powers that be. Jesse is truely an under appreciated musical genuis; legend! Yes, his friends ( o(-> , Jimmy & Terry, Morris, Andre Cymone, and Alexander) are equally as talented, but Mr. Johnson took our sound (Mpls. sound) to new heights in the era of watered down format of R&B. His albums are a must for any true lover of authentic soul, blues, rock, and funk! Enjoy!"
