Overview

After setting the funk world on fire with 1976's Good High and 1977's Brick, the Atlanta-based Brick seemed to be running out of steam on 1979's competent but unremarkable Stoneheart. Gratefully, Brick's fourth album, Waiting on You, was an improvement. Fans who found Stoneheart to be uneven and mildly disappointing were pleased to discover that Brick were more inspired and focused on this 1980 LP. Without question, Brick sound rejuvenated on energetic, infectious funk smokers like "Free," "Get Started," "Sweet Lips," and "Push, Push." And the band is equally appealing on the romantic soul ballad "Let Me Make You Happy." As much as Waiting on You has going for it, the record isn't quite as strong as Good High or Brick, both of which are classics. But it's certainly superior to Stoneheart, and it demonstrated that Brick were still quite capable of being exciting. [The 2010 reissue of the album on Funky Town Grooves adds "long" versions of the band's biggest hits ("Dazz" and "Dusic") to the track listing.]
