Short intro

Garden of Love is Rick James' fourth album on Motown sub-label Gordy. All tracks composed by Rick James except where indicated. Side A. Big Time James Calloway, Leroy Burgess, Sonny T. Davenport 6:27. Don't Give up on Love 6:15. Island Lady 4:07. Side B. Gettin' It On In the Sunshine 3:03. Summer Love 6:19. Mary -Go- Round 6:57. Gettin' It On In the Sunshine Reprise 0:40. 2010 bonus tracks, 2014 digital remaster bonus tracks, 2014 Complete Motown Albums bonus tracks. Without a doubt, Garden of Love was Rick James' most underrated release. The album went gold and was far from a flop, but Motown wanted double or triple platinum, and anything less was disappointing. And when funk fans reminisce, Garden isn't one of the albums they mention. A departure from the type of hard and rowdy funk that defined Come Get It, Bustin' Out of L Seven, and Fire It Up, Garden boasted only one major hit Big Time and was surprisingly laid-back by James' standards. The album contains more ballads than usual, and Rick uses subtlety to his artist. Album 1980 9 Songs. 2015 Motown Records, a Division of UMG Recordings, Inc.

Please retry. When one thinks of this album it's often with the idea that for so long it was one of the most obscure Rick James albums around. The songs from this album don't commonly make a lot of Rick's numerous best of packages except by and large his 2 CD anthologies and a lot of people may not even know he made it. One of the reasons for this may be because more or less of what came after it. Play jigsaw puzzles for free Home. Garden of Love, 1980. Big Time, 06:26. Gettin' It On In the Sunshine, 01:40.
