Robert Palmer — Pressure Drop

An overlooked album in his catalog, this followed his solo debut “Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley”.  Both are funky records that are far removed from his successful 1980’s pop hits.  Just as on “Sneakin’ Sally”, he’s backed up by members of Little Feat for much of the album, and the great James Jamerson plays bass on several tracks, providing some of his best post-Motown work.  Lots of great stuff to check out on this one, but one of the hippest tracks is his cover of Toots & the Maytals “Pressure Drop”.
