Arranger: Rick James .
Although he is remembered almost as much for his legal problems and wild image as he is for his music, Rick James laid down some truly unassailable funk in the 1970s and '80s. 1981's STREET SONGS was probably his finest moment, and its 20th anniversary was celebrated by the release of this DELUXE EDITION. James pared away all the fat on this release to give us jams as transcendent as "Super Freak," "Give It To Me Baby," and "Fire and Desire," a duet with Teena Marie. Those three tracks alone should be enough to raise the disc to iconic status.
The two-disc DELUXE EDITION, however, also includes 12-inch mixes of "Super Freak" and "Give It to Me Baby," which are near-perfect extended dancefloor workouts.
The second disc presents a wealth of unreleased live material (recorded at a concert in California), which captures James and his band at the peak of their powers. Add to all this meticulously remastered sound and you have a funk classic raised to the level of perfection.
