"... the definitive 80s funk album ... 20 years later, the impact of this incredible record is crystal clear ... an important album that cleverly combined funk with rock and even New Wave elements. In 1981, it was ahead of its time."
- Soul-Patrol.com

One of Rick James's biggest hits, this 1981 release hit number three on the mainstream Billboard album chart and spent 20 weeks on the Billboard R&B chart. An immediate smash, within three months of release Street Songs had sold a million copies in the US; over four million copies were sold around the world by 1983. The success of this album was propelled by James's signature song Super Freak, often sampled over the years, which topped the dance charts for three weeks. Also contains Give It To Me Baby, another number one dance and R&B single.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
