40 Year Itch : Pressure's Gonna Drop On You

Robert Palmer : Pressure Drop

   The follow up to Robert Palmer's Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley combines that album's Little Feat funk with some blue eyed Philly soul and an eye-catching cover. The first half was recorded with Little Feat in Baltimore while the second half was recorded in Los Angeles, including a session with Barry White's arranger, Gene Page, conducting a 32-piece string section. As far as the title cut, a cover of the Toots and the Maytals classic, Palmer enthused to Rolling Stone's Ed Ward "Oh! Such a Good Feeling! We had to fade it because for 15 minutes. The only reason we stopped was because the tape ran out."
