A Funk Essential
G-Funk 4ever | Listenin' to the Delfonics | 04/04/2006

"Zapp's 4th record is slammin. It includes one of my favorite songs of all time: "Computer Love" which includes the lovely voice of Shirley Murdock and the Gap Band's Charlie Wilson. That song is a perennial classic and is lifts your spirits because it is so upbeat and fresh. Other funky, great tracks include "Radio People," "It Doesn't Really Matter," and "Itchin For Your Twitchin." These songs alone give it The New Zapp IV U a 5 star rating. These old school jams stand the test of time. Just see how many rappers sampled Zapp's work in the last 15 years or so! It's great party music. RIP Roger"

"Zapp was a band out of Dayton,Ohio that pioneered in the latest technical developments & advancements in the music industry. They were among the first funk outfits to experiment with electronic & synthesized sounds,most notably the vocorder aka the talkbox,with extraordinary effects. In fact,Zapp & Roger used these elements in their music so often that it became their specialty sound. Roger Troutman also executed those loud & thunderous electro-handclaps in alot of Zapp & Roger albums. This album released in 1985 is Zapp's crowning achievement in studio recording. The New Zapp 4 U is blazing from start to finish & all the jams are indispensable funk classics. Zapp created a Synthelistic & Groovelistic stratosphere on this classic. Standout tracks include the dance-smash,"It Doesn't Really Matter",the Vocorder-Whipped Groove,"Computer Love",the deliriously funky cut"Itchin' For Your Twitchin'",the Smooth Synth Jam,"Radio People","Rock n Roll",and Zapp's excellent & remarkable rendition of "I Only Have Eyes For You". This is one album you have to own! You won't be disappointed 'cuz Zapp puts the flavor in funk!"

"First Of All I would really have to say that Zapp & Roger's music is Extremely AWESOME!!! I've just recently gotten two of their CD's, I've got their All the greatest hit's CD just the other week and it sounds awesome, and just yesterday I received this CD The New Zapp IV U, When I popped this CD in my CD player I was like WOW, of course I wasn't around in the 80's, but I wish I was, I would have boughten this on Cassette and Vinyl. I do also have to say this is one of my favorite albums from this group. I have over 600 CD's and no joke, I would have to say this is one of the best CD in my entire collection. For anyone who love's Doesn't Really Matter, Computer Love, Itchin' For Your Twitchin', Radio People, I Only Have Eyes For You and Rock' N Roll, this is a must have CD GO GET IT!!!! I was jammin all day yesterday and today, and I'm sure it's highly rare to find a CD that you'll like all the way through, of course the disc is over 24 yrs old no scratches or markings what so ever, if you take care of things they'll take care of you, it doesn't matter how long you've had it, both cassette and vinyl, just make sure you put them back in your case after listening, that's how they stay clean and make sure you handle with care. I was cuttin a rug on this here album, so glad I own a copy of it. This CD is Pretty rare, if you find it make sure you keep it, it's a classic."
