Editorial Notes:

A really great album. It has the same sound as the "
Rags To Rufus"-album, and at least as good. Althoght both albums was released the same year, there's only three members (including Chaka Khan) from the "Rags To..."-album on this one. Three left and two new came. "Please Pardon Me..." really shows that they're able to make masterpieces. "Stop On by" was a singel. Other Rufus albums: Rufus '73 Rags To Rufus '74 Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan '75 Ask Rufus '77 Street Player '78 Numbers '79 Masterjam '79 Party 'Til You're Broke '81 Camouflage '81
I am a species born to die Understanding this I hardly cry Going up and out I marry you I be your kids and be your mama too Cause I'm a woman and I'm a backbone - Rufus, "I'm A Woman (I'm A Backbone)" Go to the Funky Discography or to the Main Page.
