Muze PNote Gap Band IV featured a complete lineup of up-tempo, mid-tempo, and alluring ballads. The feature releases, in order, were "Early in the Morning," "You Dropped a Bomb on Me," and "Outstanding." The first two are energized numbers seasoned around horrific basslines and Charlie Wilson's dazzling vocals. Respectively, they peaked at number one and two on the Billboard R&B chart. Not as aggressive, the latter is a festive number paced an unorthodox percussive beat. It claimed the number one spot on the Billboard R&B chart as well. There were no other official selections to grace Billboard. However, every song visited radio, and rightly so. The sentimental numbers "Stay With Me," "Seasons No Reason to Change," and "I Can't Get Over You" have become standard among R&B radio. The latter features a sentimental flgelhorn exhibition by Ronnie Wilson. Mellow numbers always seem to retain that timeless appeal whereas up-tempo numbers fade with time. This album is different; the up-tempo numbers remain inviting as well. This is a great album. ~ Craig Lytle

Artist Overview

Although they got a bit of a slow start, Tulsa, Oklahoma's the Gap Band became one of the most popular funk/R&B outfits of the early-to-mid 1980s. The band relied heavily on synth-based, hands-in-the-air party jams of the P-Funk variety, with the occasional bedroom ballad tossed in for good measure--an approach that as quietly permeated much of the R&B and hip-hop that developed in its wake. The younger generation got the opportunity to show its respect for the band when lead singer Charlie Wilson released his 2005 solo album, CHARLIE, LAST NAME WILSON, which featured a bevy of noted guest performers, Snoop Dogg and R. Kelly among them.
