One of Palmer's Best

"In 1975, when this album came out, I wasn't allowed to have it due to the cover art. I bought it anyway, threw out the cover, and kept it in a KC and the Sunshine Band sleeve that was kicking around the house. Mom never caught on, and she even learned to chill out to "Give Me an Inch."
Flash forward to today. I'm no longer young enough that I have to listen to my mother about cover art, and I don't have to hide anything I want to hear. I re-bought the album as an MP3 (Heaven knows what happened to the LP), and was delighted to discover that the album hasn't aged a bit. The velvety smooth music is just as wonderful as it was back in the day, and has the power to make an old lady like me want to slither out of something comfortable. (I was a little girl back in 1975, so I won't comment on any side effects back then.)
Pressure Drop is a phenomenal, very sexy album, with music that's just perfect for the background when my very favorite husband comes home. He rather likes the side effects it has on me as well, so much so that even though Robert Palmer isn't his favorite musician, he never, ever complains when I grab this on the iPod and put it in the speaker."
Still Listening to Pressure Drop 30 Years Later

"A girlfriend loaned me her vinyl LP Robert Palmers' Pressure Drop around 1976. I had just started listening to Little Feats' "The Last Record Album" which I absolutely loved, so when I saw that Lowell George and Little Feat were the backing band for Pressure Drop, I had to give it a listen. I can say that I have listened to this great album (CD) about 1,000 times and still listen to it regularly. There isn't one bad song on the album. If you like Robert Palmer, you won't be sorry if you buy this CD. If you love Little Feat and haven't heard this recording, you will be getting a Little Feat album with Robert Palmer singing. Pressures gonna drop on you..."
