A wonderfully wicked collection of tunes — all solid 80s groovers from a variety of Italian groups — most of whom we'd never heard before! The style here isn't the cheesy electronic Italian disco you might know from crossover chart hits — but a bass-heavy, boogie-grooving, post-disco style that's filled with the same great jazzy riffs and keyboard parts you'd expect from American club soul of the time. Grooves often roll into some tightly snapping rollerskating rhythms — and although most instrumentation is electric, including the percussion, the overall sound is wonderfully soulful throughout. Titles include "Don't You Want My Lovin (dance mix)" by Michael Baker, "Gimme Your Love (voc disco mix)" by The Gong's Gang, "Dig It" by Kasso, "Silly Reason" by George Aaron, "My Mind" by Korja, "Love Shot (club)" by The Armed Gang, "Miss Manhattan" by Metropole, "Ride The Beam" by Selection, "Hang On It" by Trance, and "Dance On The Beat" by Boeing.

Street Songs became the biggest R&B album of that year, staying at the top of the charts for 20 consecutive weeks and since then the album has gone multi-platinum.

The sound quality is amazing, much clearer than the first copies of this CD in the mid-80s.The songs are all here!
There's the bass-heavy "Give It To Me, Baby", the street anthem "Ghetto Life" (which surely inspired a lot of the hip-hop that was soon to follow),the nice slow jam "Make Love To Me", and the reggae-tinged "Mr. Policeman", which, must have inspired latter rap songs about police brutality.
Then there is the masterpiece, the New Wave-styled "Super Freak", which still sounds fresh and new after all these years. The duet with Teena Marie "Fire and Desire" is steamy and intense, even if they do go a little overboard, vocally. "Call Me Up" is sexy and to the point, while "Below The Funk(Pass The J)" is a perfect album closer, another badass street anthem that reflects the mood of the album. Fortunately, the fun doesn't end there.
At the end of this first disc, there are bonus 12" versions of the hits "Give It To Me Baby" and "SuperFreak". The 7-minute remix of "SuperFreak" is particularly fierce, with the catchy sing-along hook "SuperFreak,the girl's a SuperFreak....SuperFreak,the girl's a SuperFreak".

Rick James had already reached the top of the R&B charts numerous times before STREET SONGS, but this 1981 release was the crossover breakthrough that earned him pop stardom. This is where his mix of P-Funk grooves and Blowfly lyrics hitched ... Full Descriptionits wagon to some surefire pop hooks without losing any of the funk. The album is best remembered for its two enduring hits, "Give It To Me Baby" and "Super Freak," but the action doesn't stop there. James unleashes his inner Barry White on "Fire and Desire," a romance-dripping slow-jam duet with Teena Marie, and the tight, funky grooves of "Below the Funk" and "Call Me Up" are as irresistible as those of the album's better-known tracks. Oh, and just in case anyone wants to stop dancing long enough to think about it, STREET SONGS is supposedly a concept album about the street life of ladies of the night and their, um, business managers.
