Juicy Fruit - Mtume


Sweet as honeydew.

Five albums. That’s how many tries (on two different record labels) it took the funk and soul group Mtume to land what is undoubtedly one of the biggest pop hits of the 1980s and beyond. After being groomed from touring with Miles Davis, James Mtume formed this group and recorded with the love, determination, and persistence it takes to top the charts in a way that also creates enduring music. 1983’s Juicy Fruit finally did that for the group after signing to Epic and releasing the lead single of the same name. Of course, we could go on and on about how many times this song (and album) have been sampled but it deserves to be recognized and enjoyed outside of that as well. Add this early 80s gem to your collection today to better understand why!

This used LP and it’s sleeve are in very good plus (VG+) condition.
