This is simply an astonishing album. Chaka Khan's song is by far her best and most intense song, if not the most perfect production job of the '80s. And I can say the same about "You Belong To The City," "In The Air Tonight," "Evan," and the utterly, devastatingly badass M.V. theme song itself. The fact that this has been out for over 30 years (I first heard it in '92) but has never been re-released as a "Deluxe" edition is incredible to me. A savvy record exec could remaster it, give it a sweet holographic cover, toss in a bonus CD or DVD or what have you, and reel in the dough hand over fist. FWIW, thanks to thrift stores & pawn shoppes, I own it on LP, backup LP, CD, and two different cassette issues.
