Overview

Junior's big tenor is as sassy and signifying as ever. His crying sax elevates Rose Royce's "Wishin' On a Star" to new heights. The title track, "Back Street Boogie," is a strutter, punctuated by slick, muted, well-spaced horn hits and Melvin "Wah Wah" Watson's whining axe. Junior blares the lyrics of "Girl I Wanna Marry You," sounding heart-attack serious about tying the knot. "Hole In the Wall" is an aggressive saga about an inner-city cheat spot where you drink, dance, play cards, and meet loose ladies named Bertha.
