Fusing jazz and R&B, percussionist Mtume created memorable chart-topping funk recordings. This collection features songs from his most successful period in the early 80's. Includes the popular songs "Would You Like To Fool Around," "You Me And He" and the #1 hit "Juicy Fruit."
3.Would You Like To Fool Around
5.Tie Me Up
6.You, Me And He
8.Body And Soul
9.Give It On Up If You Want To
A decent ten-track summary of 1980's In Search of the Rainbow Seekers, 1983's Juicy Fruit, 1984's You, Me and He, and 1986's Theater of the Mind, Juicy contains some of Mtume's most significant contributions to '80s R&B radio, though it doesn't leave enough room for a couple highlights (such as "C.O.D. [I'll Deliver]," a minor quiet storm hit that deserved better). Full-blown '80s R&B freaks really should track down each album, but it is a pleasant surprise that this set exists. The more enduring standouts include "Would You Like To (Fool Around)," "You, Me and He," and -- of course -- the perfect "Juicy Fruit." ~ Andy Kellman
