CD Reviews

One member of the Jackson family never got its props....

"Back in the summer of 1989, I picked up this CD on the strength of Luv Thang, which was getting major play on the pirate radios, due to its retro old skool sound.
This CD proves that Randy has mad talent, and if this CD had been better promoted, who knows. The group consisted of the bad man himself, Pepe Tynes, Kris Kellow, Cece Worrall, Baba burns, Jara Harris, Jeff Harris, and Cornelius Mims. The CD kicks off with the poppy sound of `Perpetrators', with its high kicking, snares, and drums. `Luv Thang' follows soon after, and, as has been mentioned earlier, this slice of `rare groove, was big on the airwaves of London town, as Randy duets with Pepe.
`Love you Honey' follows. And this could easily fit into the `new jack swing' category, and is one of my favourites (being a new jack swing head).
`You got a lady' is next up to bat, and deals with Randy getting blanked by a Lesbian! This is a funky/poppy affair. `The love we almost had' is a slow ballad, which is quite beautiful, its haunting background vocals, over a piano base, with Randy displaying a mature vocal performance. I don't know what Randy was thinking when he recorded `Gigolo', with its horrible sounding keyboards, and off key vocals.
`I can't wait' is a very nice mid tempo affair, which has a very summery feel to it.
`I need you' is Light, sugary ballad that again, is done well, show casing Randy's strong vocal prowess. The CD closes, with 'Not because of me, which is a full blown epic ballad, that builds, and dip, to a final musical finish.
I enjoy this CD, and it shows the talent that Randy has, but which remains unfulfilled.

A better jackson album

"surprisingly!!!....this is by far one of the better jackson albums of all the brother's and sister's....only mike's off the wall and thriller are better.....had he gotten more radio play and exposure he'd be right up there with the other"

"Randy Jackson is bad. the Brother can play. this Album showcases his talents. a good balance of up-tempo&slow jams. Randy is very versatile as a arranger and Producer. this album should get a fair overview because Randy is a very talented Cat. to me if Randy,Jermaine&Michael Jackson had formed a trio they could have been the Holland,Dozier&Holland of there time with there overall Talents. Randy has a strong ear for Groove&detail this Album showcases that&much more. tight Album."
