A We Have So Much (3:29)
B Joyous (3:30)
From Portland, Oregon, Pleasure blended soul, funk and jazz into a highly charged blend of black music. Lead singer Sherman Davis is joined by Marlon McClain (guitar, later playing with Jeff Lorber and still active today); Bruce Carter (drums, also session player with Wayne Henderson’s At home Productions, noitably for Ronnie Laws); Donald Hepburn (keyboards), Nathaniel Phillips (bass); Bruce Smith (percussion); Dennis Springer (saxophone); Dan Brewster (trombone); the rhythm section integral to Side Effect with their take on “Always There”. Both “We Have So much and “Joyous” extremely hard to find on 7”, a power house soul track combined with their much sampled signature jam irresistible here. “Joyous” sampled by Daft Punk, LL Cool J, Janet Jackson, Public Enemy to name a few.
