Dave Marsh wrote about ‘Juicy fruit’ from James Mtume (former percussionist of Miles Davis) in his excellent book ‘The heart of rock and soul’ (the 1001 greatest singles ever made): ‘Dirty records from the early days of R&B are more widely celebrated, but Hank Ballard never got any of his “Annie” records this far up the charts. Of course, he also didn’t come up with a riff half as exciting or danceable as the shattered-glass synth part here’. Enjoy! http://professoreddy.blogspot.com/2011/09/juiciest-fruit.html
