Rick James – Street Songs VG+/VG+

$39.00 Inc. GST

Rick James’s 1981 album, Street Songs, was a defiant return to form, shedding the smoother sounds of his previous effort and embracing the raw energy of funk. Disappointed by the reception of “Garden of Love,” James cranked the volume up on Street Songs, showcasing his signature raspy vocals and boasting some of his most enduring hits. Tracks like “Super Freak” and “Give It To Me Baby” became anthems, while the album wasn’t afraid to explore deeper themes. Social commentary snuck in alongside the party anthems, with “Ghetto Life” painting a vivid picture of urban struggles and “Mr. Policeman” confronting police brutality head-on. Even the ballads were top-notch, with the stunning duet “Fire and Desire” featuring the incredible Teena Marie. Street Songs stands as not only James’s best-selling album, but also a defining moment of pure, unadulterated funk.
