Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1982 funk classic including seven bonus tracks. Juicy Fruit was their third album for Epic Records. The original LP came at a time when funk was becoming increasingly technology-minded and horn-driven funk bands were going out of style, with funksters were using a lot more keyboards and synthesizers. Juicy Fruit reflects that evolution superbly. Throughout Juicy Fruit, James Mtume takes a very hands-on approach - in addition to producing the album and co-writing much of the material, he plays keyboards and provides some of the lead vocals (along with the expressive, big-voiced Tawatha Agee). Includes the singles 'Juicy Fruit", "Would You Like To Fool Around" and 'Green Light'.
