CD Reviews

Westbound Groove Grease at its best ! ! !
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 07/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This isn't the smooth (yet funky) Cameo/Gap Band'ish Ohio Players of Skin Tight and Fire fame... same group only much harder and tripped out... I like them both mind you, but this album is really over the edge. I think what made these earlier albums must have been Junie (later of Funkadelic fame) who left the group when they went over to Mercury (then Sugar emerged as leader.) - - Driven by funky horn lines, the grooves are uniquiely Ohio Players funk... If for some reason you've never heard this side of the Players (or even the players at all) I guess you could describe their early '70s sound as Tower of Power meets Billy Preston with a very typical WESTBOUND sound, and like Kool & The Gang (circa Spirit of the Boogie) expect to hear not only some very funky grooves, but an occasional tripped out Jazzy horn solo or two over it (The trumpet solo on the title track is a fave of mine ! ! ! ) - - For true funk fans the Ohio Player's PAIN, PLEASURE, CLIMAX (in fact all of their Westbound albums with the bald chick on the cover) are definite MUST HAVE spins !"
An instant classic

"you gotta get this if you like the ohio players contains funky worm which is one of the most samples songs in rap history, other tunes include varee is love another classic and pleasure ain't bad either junie morrison did funky worm by himself proving his genius and the end results was his own solo contract the man was a one man band way before imitators like prince and roger troutman hit the scene."
