Image: 1584066 Pleasure originated from the ashes of two local Portland, Oregon bands, The Soul Masters and Franchise, to become veritable monsters of funk, soul and jazz. Their sound is often compared to Earth, Wind and Fire or Kool and the Gang. They had an inspired run of seven albums, six for Fantasy Records and one for RCA, from 1975 through 1982. The group was discovered by Grover
Washington Jr., he passed their demos on to Wayne Henderson of The Crusaders, who signed them to his production company, At Home Productions. There, in addition to recording the group's own material for Fantasy Records, members of Pleasure also collaborated with Henderson's other artists, including Ronnie Laws and Side Effect.
Tracks from all seven Pleasure albums are featured on this multi-LP set, Glide: The Essential Collection 1975-1982, many of which have never been reissued on LP before, including an extended disco/dance remix of "Foxy Lady" which was lost in tape vaults for 35 years! Two versions of Pleasure's top 10 R&B smash "Glide" appear, along with carefully curated deep tracks like
"Thoughts Of Old Flames", "Sassafras Girl" and “Sending My Love", as well as radio favorites such as "Let Me Be The One" and the hip-hop breakbeat classics "Let's Dance" and "Bouncy Lady". Rounding out this deluxe package are many rarely seen group photos, along with extensive liner notes featuring newly-commissioned interviews with original band members by veteran Urban
music critic and historian A. Scott Galloway.
