The Milkcrate #1 Patrice Rushen – Haven’t You Heard

Playing this one in front of 50 delirious people at 5am is like hitting a homer at the company picnic – it hardly gets any better than that. The vast majority of you probably has Ms. Rushen’s 82 Hit „Forget me Nots“ somewhere in your basement or on your hard drive, but this gem of her 79 LP „Pizzazz“ I’d reckon to be rather slept on. With its fantastic arrangement and Patrice’s honey-sweet voice, this is the perfect record to tell folks at the club when the lights are about to be turned on to go hug themselves. As Larry David said „if you’re one of those idiots who needs to feel good, go get yourself a foot massage“ – you might as well blast this one while you’re at it.
