Remember Yesterday

Gentleman Ruffin the last Solo Album

 

I wanna be with you

This tune is so sexy.Strong vocals followed by a great duet partner….. Backing vocals were provided by the group Brandye (Brandye on discogs ) and they sound good.
Oh Baby..

All I Need

It is my opinion that this song is one of the weakest songs on the album. It doesn’t really appeal to me and, while listening to it, his voice seems to be too pushy. Maybe he wants to bring something out of the song which is just not there.

Love Supply

Here David is sexy again.This song fits very well in the set of songs.

Still in love with you

Finally, some up-tempo music. This song has a good rhythm and I can image how people danced to it back then. But to be hit, it offers not enough.

I got a thing for you

And here we have a song which would have been enough to be hit. It’s groovy, has a good melody and David´s vocals fit perfectly in the picture. Here he is loving you so much.

Can we make love one more time

Nothing special on this, to me it sounds like a mixture of Love Supply and All I Need.

Slow Dance

This is my favorite from the whole album. Since the first time I heard the album back in the late 90`s this is the song I cherish the most. I don’t jump around, I don’t want to boogie down. His voice fits like silk around the melody. I would buy the record just for this song alone.

Don’t you go Home

You make me feel so hungry… Another Highlight from this album. David dominates the beats and guitar slicks with his voice. He makes sure we know how much he needs/wants that woman.

All in all, a good album with some weak spots. About two songs with hit potential and far better than his first release for Warner Bros.

It`s sad, he never recorded another solo album.
