Con Funk Shun – Loveshine
Con Funk Shun – Loveshine. Con Funk Shun released Loveshine after the success of their number one hitsingle â€œFfunâ€ and used that momentum to power this new LP into the Top 40. It contains more disco-inflected soul than their earlier classic jazz funk material, but yet retaining the funky backbeat. Produced by Skip Scarborough.
Loveshine contains the hits â€œSo Easyâ€ and â€œShake and Dance With Meâ€ and the catchy horns in â€œWhen the Feelingâ€™s Rightâ€ were proof that the band was not going to be any flash in the pan. The contrasting style of the traditional ballad â€œI Think I Found the Answer,â€ meanwhile, is a fine highlight of the bandâ€™s overall range.
With a plethora of instrumentation to complete the picture, including guest percussion from Sheila Escovedo, who would later emerge as the Prince protÃ©gÃ©e Sheila E, Loveshine is a gem of its era.
Loveshine gave the band the momentum that kept them firmly in the charts for nearly a decade.
