Commodoresby The Commodores
The Commodores' early years were spent on the Southern funk circuit, where their energetic, catchy tunes, and keyboard-oriented funk made them both a college and a radio staple. They scored seminal hits with "Brick House" and "Slippery When Wet," although it became apparent quite early that lead vocalist Lionel Richie also had a bright future as a solo balladeer, with such tunes as "Easy" signaling his future on adult contemporary and Quiet Storm/urban contemporary radio. This collection highlights early up-tempo and ballad hits.

I thought this was another great list of songs. I really liked the one, ''zoom'' that was the one that I played for my staff after I retired after 17 years. There wasn't a dry eye in the place, both men and women were really listening to the song and relating it to the end of our time together. This group couldn't make a bad song if they tried to.
