The Brothers Johnson first earned national recognition as recording artists by singing the sensuously funky mid-tempo number “Is It Love That We’re Missin’,” featured on Quincy Jones’ album Mellow Madness. The dynamic duo maintains that same groove on this, its debut release for A&M Records. The first single was the moderate number “I’ll Be Good to You,” which is soothing like a ballad but inducing like a liquid funk cut. The guitar tandem landed on top of the R&B charts with this gold-selling single. They returned to the Top Five with the bona fide funk jam “Get the Funk out of My Face,” which peaked at number four. Their remake of the Beatles’ classic “Come Together” comes with a soulful twist. Aside from this remake, the Brothers co-wrote every other song on this album, including the untarnished instrumental “Tomorrow,” which later became a number one single for Quincy Jones’ Back on the Block. This album is consistent throughout. – Craig Lytle
