This is the album that my Mom just drove into the ground. When I grew up though, I started to understand why. Just like his other albums, he has mostly dreamy slow cutz on here, he has just more of them belonging here. Ike's version of "Never Can Say Goodbye" and " (They Long To Be) Close To You" are just terrific, while "Good Love" is straight up funky! I don't know why, but "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" makes me laugh everytime I hear it. Maybe because he sounds super-serious about that. Another classic from the man in chains!!!!!
