The Commodores by The Commodores
Released: Mar 1977
Label: Motown
For years, The Commodores turned its split personality into R&B smashes. They could get as nasty as any '70s funk band -- it's not hard to guess what "Squeeze the Fruit" means, and "Brick House" lavishes attention on a lady that's stacked with a "winning hand." But drummer-turned-lead singer Lionel Richie was evolving into a master balladeer, as evinced by easy listening classics like "Zoom" and "Easy." This self-titled album isn't perfect -- it has missteps like "Patch It Up" as well as solid cuts like "Funky Situation" -- but it's still one of the best in The Commodores' discography.
