iTunes Review

Ask Rufus was Rufus and Chaka Khan’s fifth album, an R&B Number One titled after the Popular Mechanics column that had previously given the band its name. The album witnessed the funk crew branching out, touching its slow jams with light jazz (“Everlasting Love”), offering a short, classically influenced interlude (“Slow Screw Against the Wall/A Flat Fry”), and ending on a striking orchestral ballad (“Egyptian Song”). Khan offers a cosmic spiritualist’s testimony with her lyrics for “Earth Song,” while “Hollywood” is a gentle yet biting evocation of the potential letdowns awaiting stardom-seeking hopefuls. The latter’s popwise chorus harmonies reveal one more trick up the outfit’s sleeve. Khan would soon be putting as much attention into her solo career as her Rufus work, but Ask Rufus is hardly a disengaged effort on anyone’s behalf.

One of the most commercially successful funk groups of the '70s, the multi-racial Rufus are today best remembered for launching the career of soul diva Chaka Khan, whose fiery lead vocals were easily the band's focal point. Powered by Khan -- who was eventually billed in addition to the group -- and an unerring sense of groove, Rufus scored an impressive string of hit singles on both the pop and R&B charts, which lasted through the '70s and up to Khan's official departure in 1983. Rufus grew out...
