Lay It On Me  performed by  Heatwave  (1976)
Composed by Rod Temperton
Arranged by unknown
From: USA
Mood: sensous, bubbling
Recommended by ambassador [profile] on Thursday 18th August 2005

Heatwave's first two albums can almost be seen as prototypes for Michael Jackson's breakthrough album "Off the Wall." With Rod Temperton, future Quincy Jones and MJ collaborator, driving this album the sound is both funky and catchy, sophisticated and accessible. "Lay It On Me" is an overlooked album track that bubbles and gurgles under the surface of the groove until the chorus arrives with strings soaring for the ectasy of Johnnie Wilder's sweet vocals, "lay it on me, lay your sweet love on me!" Beautifully arranged and excellently executed and just one of many classics of their debut album.

from Too Hot to Handle (Epic 34761), available on CD (Sony)
