Roy Ayers: No Stranger to Love

Album Notes

When you obtained a Roy Ayers/Ubiquity album in the late '70s you could usually count on two things: the funk smokers would be gritty and infectious, and the quiet storm tunes would be mellow and seductive. No Stranger To Love was no exception. Ayers comes through with some sweaty, get-down funk grooves, including "Shack Up, Pack Up, It's Up (When I'm Gone)," "Slyde," and the hit single "Don't Stop the Feeling." The quiet storm audience was bound to appreciate soft, relaxed, jazzy items like "No Stranger To Love/Want You" and Ayers' remake of Bobby Caldwell's "What You Won't Do For Love." When No Stranger To Love came out in 1979, the Disco Era was still in effect, so it isn't surprising that Ayers adds a fair amount of disco gloss to "Don't Hide Your Love." Whether he's in shake-your-booty mode or lover-man mode, Ayers exited the '70s on a high note with this excellent LP. ~ Alex Henderson
