You've got the wrong Buddy Banks! LOL

I loved the Rude Boyz, but this was not their best CD. Their second release, "Rude House" which featured the singles, "My Kinda Girl," and "Miss You So Much", was by far superior, song for song. "This Love," "True Apology," and "Tonight" are a slowjam lovers delight. And the BUDDY BANKS linked in the iTunes reviews is jazz great Buddy Banks, not the one in the Rude Boyz, LOL. Ya'll may wanna fix that! Oh, if you can find it (and you can), check out Little Joe's solo CD, under the name J. Little. That is a classic, especially the sultry, "Flex & Sex."

Gerald Levert RIP

Both cd's were cool. "Written All over your Face" is a classic.. RIP Gerald..

And they've got the wrong year...

For other CDs that were released for the first time on CD in the 21st Century, the "release date" is still the date of the original album release. This album was not released in 2005.....not even close......
