The ultimate place for 80's Soul Funk & Boogie

Brick - Summer Heat

Summer Heat


Bang Records (US)

Format: LP

Year: 1981


Summer Heat, was co-produced by ┬áRay Parker, Jr. ┬áThe urgent “Sweat (Til You Get Wet)” is pure early era Brick, packed with solid horn breaks, sexy guitars, and jamming bridge. As a single, the song deservedly returned the band back in the Top Ten. “Wide Open” also reins in the beat enough to create an instant party. But, although we know that Brick can stand alone with energetic funk fests, the band also proves themselves equally proficient and comfortable with a mellower mood. Both “Sea Side Vibes” and the Ray Parker, Jr.-penned “Babe” are effective soul ballads.
