Removed from his heavy funk days, Larry Graham mixes this album with ballads and midtempo numbers. The chart-topper from this album was the title track "Just Be My Lady." With his brawn sound, Graham sails through the lyric with agility and ease. With its affectionate connotation, the single became a popular wedding number; it peaked at number four on the Billboard R&B charts after 19 weeks. On an even more serene note, "Guess Who" was released as the follow-up single. It only fared at number 69 after a mere four weeks on the charts; however, it is still a touching number. While side one is filled with one ballad after another, side two has all moderate numbers. Some selections are shaded with Graham's do wop and gospel influence, and all have much appeal. ~ Craig Lytle
