A MUST HAVE funk classic!

"This is simply a must have funk release from perhaps one of the most under rated and under appreciated masters of funk: James Mtume. The release features the powerful vocals of Tawatha Agee. The cut entitled "Breathless" is a sultry, sensous, and erotic jewel."
The sad end of a great, if overlooked group

"Always led by the prolific James Mtume, and usually anchored vocally by the great underrated Tawatha Agee, Mtume made some undeniable old school classics in the early 80s. This album, the last by the group, is missing about 90% of what made all previous efforts so outstanding. Not very many good songs, and several spoken parts (some of which seem to not make much sense). "Body & Soul (Take Me)," is the last great slow ballad that they made, and "I Don't Believe You Heard Me" is a rollicking, bouncy, James Brown-inspired funk number, but aside from these 2 selections, the rest of this album lacks the focus and solidity of previous efforts."
