"Almost effortlessly, Rick James was on a roll ... he also continued to avoid the strong social commentary funk was known for earlier in the decade and showed no interest in creating a sci-fi alter-ego like George Clinton and his adventurous space cadets band, Parliament. Instead, he composed his funk tunes as a marching band for freaks, one of his most commonly used adjectives."
- PopMatters.com

Long out of print, this 1979 release from Rick James broke into the Billboard top 40 and was certified gold in the US. The eagerly-awaited reissue Includes a bonus extended mix of the single Love Gun, a top 15 R&B success and top 40 dance hit. The album also contains Come Into My Life, another top 40 R&B song for James.

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!
