iTunes Review

Chaka Khan’s third album with Rufus proved that commercial and artistic success needed not be mutually exclusive. As the band perfected its blend of pop, funk and disco, they continued to retain a high caliber of songwriting and instrumentation. Chaka Khan’s importance to the band cannot be overstated. She gives every song soul and guts, and makes every performance utterly convincing. “Fool’s Paradise,” “Ooh I Like Your Loving” and “Circles” are brilliant productions that combine complex arrangements with Chaka’s vibrant vocals, while “Have a Good Time” and “Everybody Has an Aura” reprise the hard-hitting funk of the band’s early years. A reading of the Bee Gees’ “Jive Talkin’” shows Chaka’s ability to squeeze the sex from any song, but as a whole, the album is more of a showcase for her gentle side. “Little Boy Blue” is a poignant love note to a man lost in addiction, but the real showstopper is “Sweet Thing.” Over a slippery, minimalist guitar riff, Chaka offers the sweetest evocation of lovelorn delirium.

A Must For Any True Chakaholic!!!!!

Chaka Khan

I'm a heterosexual woman, and her singing still turns me on. Her voice is warm and strong and full of sexual confidence. I'm sorry that "Ain't Nobody" isn't in this collection. She really worked that song, and if you haven't heard it, you should. But if you want a taste of what's here, check out "Sweet Thing." Man, I love to be Chaka Khan.

Response to Bad Cover...

You are obviously not a fan of Chaka Kahn and Rufus. If so, you would have some understanding of this group's extraordinary rise and success in the R&B AND Pop world of music and NOT just focused on the album art! Let me take you back to the 1970s. As a Black girl growing up in the age of desegregation and the newly Civil Rights Act, I, along with numerous other Blacks viewed this group as, in a since, a testament to how far we've come in the way of respect. Their sound was fresh and uplifting and it was being fronted by a gorgeous woman, with a 100 watt smile and full, luscious lips! Ms. Kahn's beautiful smile and lips are her best feature and her fans knew this, which is why they are prominently featured on the cover of the album you detest. For girls like me, Chaka showed all of us to love ourselves as we are, full lips and all!


Formed: 1970 in Chicago, IL

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s

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...
