Con Funk Shun (1985) Electric Lady 12″

Very Brief:
Desert Island music choices?  I’m sure a lot of you have contemplated the question of what albums would you want to have with you on a deserted island?  I really don’t play the game fairly because my list of required listening would probably be the cause of the boat sinking and putting me on that damned, theoretical island in the first place.  But, be that as it may, the Con Funk Shun album ‘Electric Lady’ of 1985 is one of those albums on my list.  It’s a perfect 80’s combo of funky R&B and slow jams from start to finish.  The title track is one that falls into the funky category and the 12″ version just fleshes out the entire track and adds almost 2 more minutes of delicious groove to the track.  “It was always weird to hear three beeps at the height of her satisfaction”.

Ya know, with the work in robotics advancing by leaps and bounds these days… and, yes, sex robots, too… someone should license this track from Con Funk Shun for use in promotion of their new “sex machine”.  Con Funk Shun were 30 years ahead of their time!
