Vinyl? Check! # 22: Perfect Strangers

This 1978 Rufus/Chaka Khan collaboration, Street Player is just dope all the way around. It includes the magnificent soul gem, Stay, and one of my newfound favorites Stranger To Love. Noone can duplicate Chaka's voice; It just oozes with soul and sensuality without sounding as if she's even trying. I also enjoy the movements in the song, which you don't hear enough of anymore. Check it out HERE.

First of all! That album cover is wicked as hell! From the dude licking the lady's head, to the one on the police's flip flops no less. Classic pic for a classic sound. I can just see people @ Studio 54 dancing w/ each other w/o a care in the world! Lovely, groovy song Sun!
