Nice and Smooth - Select 1989
I know I don't need to say anything about Nice and Smooth. It's already been said, right? I will say that this cut definitely needs more exposure than most of the other jams from this self-titled classic. I guess that could be said for Dope on a Rope and Skill Trade too. I like Funky for You just as much as the next guy but this album's chocked full of great tracks. The Amen Brother break is looped up faithfully while ESG's UFO gets the chop treatment to good effect. Simple production while Nice and Smooth let all outů nice! This did get reissued on wax momentarily but I don't know if it's still around. Fuck it, if you can find it on CD don't deny yourself this classic.
