CD Reviews

Rufus and Chaka kicked Butt!
Lauren Daniels | Charlotte, NC USA | 10/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is by far one of their best albums or cd! I bought this album years ago, 1978, to be exact! It was my first album I ever bought!! I still have it somewhere in a collection of music! There are no bands like Rufus and there are no bands from R&B that can play like this! They had some of the best musicians in the industry! The singing is superb!! Chaka is the best and she will always be!! Because I was in love at at the time or ( so I thought), " The Best of my Heart", was the stand out for me! Also "Blue Love" as well as the dramatic "Stay"! These songs will outshine any songs written today! They had so much style and they were about being true, and the words were fantastic as well as memorable! Too bad people are not as "lyrically inclined" as they were back then! It is about the bottom line now! Your lyrics don't have to mean anything! The music had more than a "hook" or a "loop". They were not rehashed with beats to emphasis the nothingness!"
Play it again and again.

"Growing up as a teen in the seventies, I listened to a lot of Rufus. I thought they were one of the most progressive artists of their time, and me being a white boy growing up in the urban inner city, I could really identify with this genre. This album got little recognition because Chakas long awaited debute album with I'm every women overshadowed it,however this is a must have for collectors. The fusion of r/b,rock,and jazz sounds flow throughout along with chaka great vocal abilities. Two great instrumentals let rufus showcase the band. great ballads also."
Another Solid Record from Rufus & Chaka

"'Streetplayer' is another great record from Rufus & Chaka, this record has them placed in a more mellow smooth jazz\r&b setting, Chaka's voice is so great on this record! and Tony as always adds his unigue voice to the mix, 'Streetplayer' was alittle ahead of its time for 1978, this record is a concept album which needs to be heard in it's entirety, that's why only two singles were released 'Stay' & 'Blue Love', now this gem has been remastered, the original cd release had some audio flaws, those have been cleaned up... the remastered sound on this cd is fantastic! the sound is crisp and full, i'm hearing things i've haven't heard before... this is a limited edition so get it while you can."
