Accept No Substitutes [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
Digitally remastered edition of this 1976 Funk classic. Accept No Substitutes was the second album from the Portland outfit Pleasure. It contained their first R&B hit in the laid-back 'Ghettos of the Mind', plus the storming club floor-filler 'Let's Dance', a collaboration with label mates Side Effect. The rest of the album is the band at their height and features out-and-out Funk as well as the Jazz Dance classic '2 for 1'. Pleasure were signed to Fantasy through Jazz trombonist Wayne Henderson, who produced their early records including this one. An eight-piece, their mix of Soul, Funk and Jazz was hoped to be Fantasy's answer to the mega-selling Earth, Wind & Fire and Kool & the Gang. Although they didn't achieve that level of popularity, the quality of their music was just as high. Beat Goes Public.
