    This is one of the best albums ever, not just in the house/electronic category. My favorites are "Do U Love Me," "Dancing In My Sleep," "Share," and the unfortunate case of CD supremacy, "Jazzmen," which at least is on Spotify. I think this album is a fantastic showcase of some genre blending, as well, and in this instance, the features of jazz and house collaborate prominently to excel eargasmically.

      Definitely one of the best house albums ever made. Besides the classics "Share" is the most outstanding song for me on here. Such a beautiful R&B tune that shows how talented Marvin is not only as a producer but also as a lead singer.

        1200 people want this album on Vinyl. It is time for sony to re-issue it and also put Joi Cardewell's name on the cover. Very few and expensive used copies exist.

          Worth it alone for Lonely People, still sounds so fresh. Lush production and engineering throughout. A high point for house. masterpiece.

            It's been 30 years since it was released this year, but no plans for 30th anniversary reissue?
            2LP is preferable. hope the first album also will be reissued on 2LP.

              This is crying out for a 2LP properly remastered reissue.

                  This has to be one of the top 10 house records of all time. Listen to this from end to end & each track has it own lush sound full of emotion, such beautiful music..

                    I remember hearing his album as early as the age of seven. It introduced me to house music. What better way to be introduced to house music than by way of the music of a house legend? This album was a house masterpiece.
