Long before Lionel Richie became one of the biggest pop solo stars of the eighties, he was a member of the Commodores, once dubbed “The Funkiest Band In The Land” and one of Motown‘s most successful acts during the seventies. With the numerous compilations this seemed to capture all their favorite songs and more. From the earlier hits like “Brick House” sung by drummer Walter “Clyde” Orange to the later and biggest hits “Easy” and “Three Times A Lady” sung by Lionel Richie. What makes this one special is that songs like “Jesus Is Love” and some of their earlier instrumentals and hard to find songs are included. There is also a rare gem included on this set, an early Commodores single that didn’t do anything but is nonetheless worth having; “Are You Happy?”
