"'Intimate Connection',Kleeer's Exceptional 1984 Album was Absolutely Ground-Breaking,and that's to say the least. It was a Musical Masterpiece and Simultaneously Innovative and Infectious.
Kleeer's Music was Way Ahead of its Time and the music they created here is Classic & Timeless. This album was full of Musical Technology;Synthesizers,Drum Machines,Keyboards and all things Electronic are featured at the forefront of this Cd. It had Kleeer's Original Formula as well;The band exercises their Supreme Musical Skills with their Songwriting Abilities. When you put all those elements together, you come up with an Unbeatable Combination of Glorious Synth Soundscapes,Driving Drum Machines,Some Soft-as-Silk Vocal Stylings and the Requisite Musical Instrumentation of Funk Bands. Mix it all together and what have you got? The Musical Magnificence that is KLEEER. Intimate Connection is an Essential Collection of Smooth-Gliding Grooves that will Take Your Breath Away and is the Epitome of Classic 80s Funk. Every track here is Unforgettable Funk:
1)Ride It- A Rock-Inspired Funk Jam complete with Grinding Guitars courtesy of Richard Lee and a big Splash of Synth. Ride That Groove!
2)You Did It Again- A Lushly Arranged Lite-Funk Cut. Woody Cunningham sings of Love,Romance and Heartbreak on this Addictive Smooth-Riding,Synth-Filled Tune.
3)Go For It- A song that Showcases the Kleeer Rhythm Section with a Positive Message of having the Audacity to do what you want in Life and Fulfill your Dreams. Kleeer gives you a License to Dream along with an Astonishing Synth-Wave.
4)Intimate Connection- One Tight Track with Seductive Lyrics. Very Sensual Funk Jam. Norman Durham's 808 Roland Drum Machine & OBX-A Synthesizers are in Full Effect.
5)Next Time It's For Real- This Time Around Norman Durham sings convincingly over a Mezmerizing Drum Machine Groove and Cosmic Slice of Synthesizers. Norman Durham carries the tune well & makes it his own over a Vibrant Swirl of Synth Rhythms.
6)Break- A Vocorder-Whipped Breakdance Jam.
7)Tonight- Vocorder-Driven Groove with an infectious hook and a Blast of Electro-Funk Flavor. Synthesized-Funk At Its Peak. Also includes Norman Durham on Electric Bass-Layin' Down One Nasty Bass Line.
8)Do You Want To?- On this Cut,Percussionist Paul Crutchfield gets a chance to show off his vocal range on this catchy and eccentrically syncopated song. Very Interesting Track that attracts your attention immediately.
All and all,this album turned out to be a spectacular & versatile offering from Kleeer. My expectations were high and the music Kleeer created here greatly exceeds above anyone's standards. After The Very Best Of Kleeer introduced me to Kleeer's Extraordinary Sound;This is the first album that I purchased by Kleeer and also the one that got me interested & instantly hooked onto Kleeer's other classic LPs. This Cd is a rare Japanese Import Edition released in 2000 of the Original 1984 LP. [...] So it is very costly & hard to find. Even so,this Cd is HIGHLY Recommended for serious funk fans.
