"One of the more obscure stars in the TK Records constellation -- a one-off club project, featuring the writing and production talents of Oscar Llord (former Sony Discos chief, president of OLE Music), and the vocals of Bobby Bushe -- hence the title! The set's got a rough take on the Miami disco style of the time -- a bit less polished than the usual TK record, with some earnest instrumentation and vocals that falter a bit at times, but which are all that much better because of that fact. In other words, the rougher edges make this one great -- and a lot better than some of the too-smooth club of the time! "

"a year ago a friend of mine picked up a copy of the original lp because he'd heard the buzz about it. we went through the album together and agreed that there wasn't even one memorable cut. the cover is so strangely bad it suggests the music might be bad-good, but alas it's simply bad-bad."

"I have to disagree, since this album contains one of the most extraordinaire disco soul tracks of all times... LOVE FUSE, a great stomper with marvellous horns arrangements, a wonderful guitar groove and a deep soul lead voice.Give it a second listen"

"Not much of a cover, but a plenty groovy little record -- an obscure indie soul set from the Detroit scene of the early 80s, served up in a nice blend of modern grooves and mellower moments! The vocals are really great on some numbers -- with soaring harmonies that really bring a lot out of the tunes, especially on some of the more laidback ones -- giving the record a sense of depth and fullness that often matches that of bigger known groups from the time. The whole thing was arranged and produced by Jim Roach ."
