Pretty much everything from all their ‘76 to ‘80 albums, and a significant proportion of Winners. Quite like “Welcome to the Club” from ‘82 as well.

like many other 70s R&B/funk artists,The Brothers Johnson had to adpt to the changing trends in the 80s.Their 1984 album Out Of Control took them in some new directions.Producer Leon Sylvers contributed a few tracks,including the hit single "You Keep Me Coming Back".The 12" remixed version is excellent!

I know about this album. I bought it in 1978 and played the hell out it. I'm
amazed that it's still playable today with very little surface noise.
Blam is my favorite Brothers Johnson album. Ain't We Funkin Now,Blam,
Ride O Rocket, Mista Cool,and Louis Johnson's baddest work Streetwave.

1. Blam
2. Look Out For Number 1
3. Light Up The Night
Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

I got the opportunity to meet these guys in 2003 when they performed in my area.Wonderful guys! During their show,they performed a new song called "Grooveless" and there was talk of a new album.Sadly,the album never appeared.Louis passed away in 2015 (R.I.P.).
