On Awakening, Narada Michael Walden placed aside the jazz fusion leanings of his early albums in favor of a more radio-friendly sound. The strategy worked, with Walden having his first Top Ten R&B single, "I Don't Want Nobody Else (To Dance With You)," which also charted number 47 on the pop charts in early 1979 and Awakening breaking into the R&B Top 15. The follow-up single, the mid-tempo groover "Give Your Love a Chance" featured grand arrangements by Patrick Adams. Walden displays his hyperkinetic drumming skills on "They Want the Feeling." Other standouts are "Love Me Only," the beautiful radio-aired album track "Listen to Me," and the tender "Will You Ever Know."
this album was one of narada michael walden's best,he was a big force in the 80's and 90's.one of his band members was none other than american idol's randy jackson who was a excellent musician in his own right.
This album brings back memories, fresh out of high school first love, beginning to open your self to new expriences thanks iTunes for allowing old favorites to be placed back into my play rotation!
