Album Review

Although the Crusaders could not have known it at the time, their recording of "Street Life" (which features a memorable vocal by Randy Crawford) was a last hurrah for the 20-year old group. Their recordings of the next few years would decline in interest until the band gradually faded away in the '80s. However this particular set is well worth picking up for the 11-minute title cut and there is good playing by the three original members (Wilton Felder on tenor, soprano and electric bass, keyboardist Joe Sample and drummer Stix Hooper) along with guitarist Barry Finnerty; horn and string sections, plus additional guitarists are utilized on Sample's commercial but listenable arrangements

More SILLY iTunes Restrictions!!!!

Why can't the title song be downloaded individually??? This is more corporate nonsense. This frustrates iTunes customers to no end. When will you "suits" learn that this policy is penny-wise, but dollar-foolish?????

The Album Of Choice

The Crusaders got this album right. As with other artists there is always one that stands in front of the others.....this is theirs.


That's all I have to say. This is nonsense. I LOVE only the one song so why in the world do I have to purchase the whole album-which I don't want??? It just makes us all angry. It's like asking us to spend $9.99 for one song! Wake up people!!

With the move of Sample, Felder, Hooper, and Henderson to Los Angeles in 1960, the band (a quintet with the bass spot constantly changing) took on the name of the Jazz Crusaders. The following...
